AFC Bournemouth vs Manchester United Match Preview






Preamble

They seem to be running riot,the “ole out” chant is becoming vague and after that Marcos Rashford free kick on Wednesday against Chelsea, can we now say that United are back??

After a spell of 4 games without a win, United have won their last three matches in all competition, including a 2-1 win against Chelsea in the round of 16 of the Carabao Cup. They seem to have gotten their rhythm back, but tomorrow, they would have a point to prove to the fans, as they travel to face Bournemouth.

While united are recovering slowly from their bad spell, it’s been the opposite for Bournemouth. They haven’t got a win in their last 3 games, losing 1 and drawing 2, among which were Watford who sits bottom of the table.

Still, both teams has the same point after 10 games, only separated by goal difference, and Bournemouth definitely would like to seize the opportunity to go above the red devils, to 7th on the  league.                                                                                                                                               United on the other hand are aiming to catch up with Arsenal, who have been sloppy in recent weeks.

Luke shaw, Matic and would also be out, as they keep on recovering from their injuries. Axel Tuanzebe is still working on his hip problem he got after the Liverpool game, he would join them on the sidelines as well as Eric Baily.


Bournemouth


Dan Gosling could be back for the Cherries. The midfielder has been out since the season started due to a hip injury he got during the summer. It would be pretty straight for them, as there is no Injury concerns for them except David Brooks (ankle) and Junior Stanislas (knee)  who are still out.

PLAYERS TO WATCH


Aaron Ramsdale

Aaron Ramsdale he has been fantastic, and so far this season the goalie has  made 32 saves in 900 minutes, the highest by any keeper in the league. He was Bournemouth’s player of the month for October, conceding just once in 3 matches. He would be instrumental tomorrow afternoon when the red devils pay them a visit.

Scott McTominay

After a string of impressive performances in recent times, including that screamer against Arsenal, he has been named man Utd player of the month for October. Indeed he has been one of the positives for United lately and the midfielder would be on board to finish off the cherries.


It’s now or never for Ole, it hasn’t been a great season so far, but a victory tomorrow would help restore the faith of the fans in him and might give them the necessary momentum to push on.
