Manchester United v Bournemouth Premier League Preview, 13th December 8.00pm
The Red Devils felt that they were a bit unlucky in their 2-1 home loss to Manchester City on the weekend. That defeat left them eleven points adrift of the leaders but they do at least have a good chance of snapping straight back to winning ways in this one. Bournemouth have failed to win any of their last four league outings now but they have managed to pick up a four match unbeaten streak of form out on the road. Manchester United are 2/7 to claim the win, with the draw at 9/2 and the Cherries are heavy underdogs at 11/1.
Manchester United News and Form
The Red Devils were sunk in the Manchester derby by their neighbours Man city on the weekend and even boss Jose Mourinho thinks that their title shot is done for the season. United are still in second place and with some work to do to lock in a top four place for the term. The loss to Man City was the first time that United failed to win a home match in the league this season, but they have only conceded the three goals on home soil all season still. So Manchester United to win to nil at Betfair is going to have appeal in this one. United’s overall form then is W7 L1 in their eight matches at Old Trafford so far and they have averaged 2.6 goals per game on home soil and there is going to be a good option on them in the Betfair correct score market and the Red Devils are 6/1 to get a 2-0 victory on the board while they are at 15/2 to win 1-0. Fourteen of the 21 league goals that they have scored on home soil this season have come in the second half of matches and Romelu Lukaku is their top scorer at Old Trafford with five goals there. He is the first goalscorer favourite in the match at 12/5. With their 100% scoring record in home fixtures this season, they will be expected to shake off that loss in the derby on the weekend. They have the second best home record in the top flight this season and they have the joint best defensive record as well.
Bournemouth News and Form
The Cherries have only suffered the one loss in their last six games played now in the top flight and they have gone unbeaten in their last four on the road with a W2 D2 record. They played out a draw at Crystal Palace on the weekend to collect another point and overall home and away they are D3 L1 in their last four games. Their overall away form reads W2 D2 L4 this season and they have been level at the break in five of their eight road games so they could be worth backing in the half time draw at Betfair to dig in there. The Cherries have only scored the six goals out on the road this season so may not offer up too much of a threat to Manchester United’s defence at the end of the day. The real challenge is going to be for them keeping a clean sheet in this one but they do have two of them in their eight road games so far. Under 2.5 goals at Betfair would back up them keeping things tight at Old Trafford. Jermain Defoe is the only Bournemouth player to have scored more than one away goal for the club this season and he is an 11/1 option, the same price as Callum Wilson.
Manchester United v Bournemouth Head to Head
There was a 1-1 draw between these two at Old Trafford last season which not many punters will have seen coming. United are just W2 D1 L1 in their four previous Premier League fixtures against the Cherries, with both teams having scored in each of those fixtures. From the overall head to head between them across all competitions, United are 7-2 up with three drawn games.
Who will win – Manchester United v Bournemouth Predictions
Manchester United should be able to pick up the three points on offer in this one back on home soil. It is a good chance for them to shake off the disappointments of the Manchester derby and they are great value to turn out and win this to nil.
