Manchester United will be looking for a fourth straight away victory in all competitions when we travel down to the south coast to face Bournemouth in today’s lunchtime Premier League kickoff.
Eddie Howe’s side are winless in their last four Premier League games and haven’t scored since September. However, they haven’t conceded since the 9th minute of their 1-0 loss at Arsenal at the beginning of October, drawing their last two games 0-0.
Rain and strong winds are on the forecast at the Vitality Stadium today.
Here are the two confirmed lineups:
Aaron Ramsdale; Adam Smith, Steve Cook, Nathan Ake, Diego Rico; Harry Wilson, Jefferson Lerma, Philip Billing, Ryan Fraser; Callum Smith, Josh King
Substitutes: Arthur Boruc, Simon Francis, Chris Mepham, Lloyd Kelly, Lewis Cook, Arnaut Groeneveld, Dominic Solanke
Eddie Howe has made just one change since last weekend, with Harry Wilson coming into the starting lineup. The Welsh international may fancy his chances from long range, aided by the swirling wings.
Bournemouth pose threat in attack and on the counter-attack with Ryan Fraser, Callum Wilson and Josh King.
David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Ashley Young; Scott McTominay, Fred; Daniel James, Andreas Pereira, Anthony Martial; Marcus Rashford
Substitutes: Sergio Romero, Brandon Williams, Marcos Rojo, James Garner, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Mason Greenwood
Our recent form coincides with the return of Anthony Martial from injury, and maybe Paul Pogba being absent through injury himself. The French forward partners well with Marcus Rashford in attack and the duo, along with Daniel James down the right wing, should be capable of creating a few good chances today.
Ashley Young starts at left-back again in the continued absence of Luke Shaw, though Brandon Williams is available on the substitutes bench. Scott McTominay has played well alongside Fred recently, whilst Andreas Pereira continues in the number 10 after a couple of impressive performances in that position.
