Bournemouth vs Manchester United
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 2 November 2019
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth).
After back-to-back wins against Norwich, in the league, and Chelsea, in the Carabao, morale at the United camp seems to be on the rise. And it is, in fact, a much-needed one. While their arch-rivals have been experiencing the times of their life in the country, the Devils are forced to stick to old glory to keep their heads up.
One more win, that too on the road, can revive the spirits of the players as well as fans. And taking into account the off-form Bournemouth has been in for the past several weeks, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are definitely going to put on a show.
Bournemouth vs Manchester United Head-to-head (h2h)
- The previous four clashes saw United winning.
- Eddie Howe’s men conceded twice or more in the former three clashes.
- It’s been four years since the Cherries have recorded a triumph.
- At this venue, the guests recorded wins in the past three visits.
- Six of the preceding eight encounters had goals at either end of the pitch.
Bournemouth vs Manchester United Prediction
Howe’s men were held to a draw the last day by the dead-last placed Watford. Keep note that the game ended without a single goal, and the latter is yet to record a win in the competition as well. Suffice it to say, confidence is not a thing in abundance at the Vitality Stadium right now.
Meanwhile, the Red Manchester side really is enjoying a good stretch of games, with their previous three being on the road, and all these ties resulted in a victory for them. Marcus Rashford was the destructor-in-chief as the Devils defeated the 2016-17 PL champions at their own home.
After three away ties (all wins) in a row, (one in the Europa League, one in the Premier League, and the latest in the Carabao Cup), Solskjaer’s men try their luck in the fourth. Do understand that the team has performed phenomenally well against this opponent in the past, with them recording wins in the former four h2h clashes, and in the past three at this stadium.
On top of that, the hosts of the day are winless in their prior five overall games and were so in five of their preceding six at this ground.
As such, expect a good day at the office for the 13-time PL champions.
However, considering the problems that the Red Manchester side has been having for quite a long time, and the desperation of Bournemouth to get back on track, coupled with their home advantage, the chances for the BTTS clause to fulfilled, look particularly bright.
