Manchester United vs Bournemouth Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Saturday, 4 July 2020. Kick-off 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET at the Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have been on fine form for the past few months. Especially with the arrival of Bruno Fernandes, the team has been rejuvenated, and they seem determined to not let Liverpool rule England unopposed.
As of now, they are in possession of the fifth and final CL spot, and with just six match-days remaining, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will be dreaming of making it into Europe’s premier competition.
Their closest competitor in that regards will be Wolves, who are currently level on points with them. However, the Wolves are pitted against Arsenal this game week, while the Devils are taking on the Cherries – a relegation-battler.
Considering the recent forms of both teams, as well as the results of h2h games over the years, it’s expected that Manchester United will be posting the three points on the board.
Manchester United vs Bournemouth: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Solskjaer’s men had won four of the previous five encounters.
- They were also unbeaten in seven of the preceding eight meetings.
- The latest clash at this ground had ended in a massive 4-1 win for the hosts.
- In fact, the home team has a 100% unbeaten record at this venue, and disregarding a single draw, they have a 100% winning record this past decade.
- Not once have the guests kept a clean sheet at the Old Trafford.
Manchester United vs Bournemouth: Prediction
The Devils recorded a 0-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Brighton. Fernandes was the man of the match for the guests, as he shined with two goals. Meanwhile, the Cherries lost 1-4 at home the past game week, against Newcastle.
As things stand, Solskjaer’s men are huge favorites. They have been one of the best teams in the competition for a long time, and they have been on stupendous form lately. On the other hand, their opposite number are placed in the relegation zone, and are struggling to perform.
Moreover, the Devils are on a 15-game unbeaten run (of which 11 were wins), and they were also invincible in 20 of their preceding 22 appearances at this ground. On the contrary, their counterparts are on a four-match losing run in overall fixtures, and lost their last seven road trips as well.
Taking these factors into account, expect a convincing win from Manchester United this game week.
