Ibra Gets Debut, Confirmed Manchester United Line Up For Bournemouth

Manchester United have released the line-up for their Premier League match against Bournemouth this afternoon.

It’s a return to the side for Juan Mata, who missed out on a starting berth on Sunday against Leceister City at Wembley and will likely return to a role on the right of attack.

The only other change to the side is Ander Herrera coming in for Marouane Fellaini, to make up the midfield duo of the 4-2-3-1 that new manager Jose Mourinho has favoured so far.

The bench is filled with pace should United struggle to break Bournemouth down, with Memphis Depay, Marcus Rashford and Henrikh Mkhitaryan available. Marcos Rojo is the only recognised defender, suggesting Phil Jones is particularly unfavoured by the Portuguese.

Mourinho will be hoping for a better start to this season’s campaign, having seen his then-Chelsea side draw 2-2 with Swansea City at the same stage last season. United started last term with two unconvincing 1-0 wins in succession, one over Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford courtesy of a Kyle Walker own goal and the other at Villa Park, where Adnan Januzaj’s first half strike was enough to see off Aston Villa.

Kick off for the fixture is 1:30pm BST. Come on, United!
