Manchester United vs Bournemouth
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 30 December 2018
Kick-Off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Old Trafford (Manchester).
Manchester United and Bournemouth will drop the curtain on English top flight football in 2018. They will come into Sunday’s affair at Old Trafford in completely a completely opposite mood. The hosts are flying high under the new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Red Devils netted as many as eight goals in two matches under the Norwegian manager.
Solskjaer’s men will have a nice opportunity to keep the stellar attacking form going here as well given they’ll be up against struggling Bournemouth side. The Cherries suffered a real disaster on Boxing Day when they fell 5-0 to Tottenham Hotspur away at Wembley.
The visitors lost eight, drew one and won one of last ten matches across competitions. They lost five on the trot away from home failing to find the back of the net in any of last three defeats in the process.
Manchester United vs Bournemouth: Head-to-head
Manchester United were the dominant force in the short history of this match-up.
The Red Devils won five, drew one and lost one of seven encounters with Bournemouth.
United picked up one of rare away wins under Jose Mourinho just against AFC Bournemouth, 1-2 at Vitality in November.
It was Man Utd’s third consecutive victory in H2H games with the Cherries.
Manchester United vs Bournemouth: Prediction
Manchester generally played well on the home patch even under Jose Mourinho this season. They won five, drew three and lost one of nine league games at Old Trafford. Everything points out to one-sided contest here and we would be surprised to see any other scenario but a comprehensive victory by two or more goals difference for the hosts.
