Manchester United vs AFC Bournemouth Preview

Manchester United vs AFC Bournemouth

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Old Trafford

Date: 13th December 2017

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

After their crushing derby day loss to Manchester City three days ago, Manchester United return to Premier League action here.

Luckily they are facing a relegation threatened Bournemouth side.

The Red Devils disappointed a lot of fans when they played defensively for much of the first half in Sunday’s derby.

Romelu Lukaku was to blame for both Manchester City goals and did almost nothing at the other end of the pitch.

His confidence is at an all-time low and needs goals to help him get up to speed.

The Red Devils may have lost the league title as an 11 points gap has been opened up between them and Manchester City but that was their first home loss in 15 attempts so they will look to keep the South Coast side at bay here again.

Bournemouth has been dismal this season despite their impressive transfer dealings.

They are currently just three points off the drop zone after going four games without a win.

Those matches were against Swansea, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Southampton and getting just three pints from those fixture will not help their confidence when they visit Old Trafford.

This is the fifth time ever that these two sides have faced each other and Manchester United have won twice, drawn once and lost once.
