Thoughts on Manchester United vs Bournemouth
It’s the match of a huge significance as every point matters for both teams from that point out. Unbeaten in 15 matches, 5th Manchester United will be facing 19th Bournemouth currently sitting in the relegation zone. There are only 6 match weeks left until the end of the season. Since Liverpool has been officially announced champions it has now come down to the teams below to fight for their desired spots in the standings.
The Cherries can’t seem to find a solution for their very disappointing performances. The team has been drowning in its own losses for months and nothing seems to change this time out. Man Utd is with no doubt a much bigger threat in this clash. Red Devils have never lost a game at Old Trafford against Bournemouth.
Unbeaten United to make it 16?
It’s fair to say Ole’s side is aspiring for next year’s Champions League. Mission first thought as impossible, now becomes more and more realistic as there are only three points separating them from the 4th place. The team has been unbeaten in the last 15 games played across all the competitions. What strikes us the most is the team’s efficiency which has been even more boosted since the Pogba-Fernandes linkup on the pitch.
Hosts are better than ever since the Premier League return. Seven goals and two clean sheets in three matches is an impressive statistic. It’s fair to say United is one of those teams who perform significantly better at their own stadium. The team loses as fewer goals as Liverpool or Man City – only 0.75 – when playing at home. Moreover, Man Utd haven’t lost at Old Trafford since 22nd January.
Unprevented Bournemouth defeat?
The Cherries have regressed significantly performance-wise compared to the other season’s played at English top level. However, 2019/20 campaign hasn’t started that bad for the team. They have produced 16 points in the first 11 games played this season, but it was after their shocking 1-0 win with Man Utd when the things started slowly falling apart. Since then they have won only three games out of 21 played.
Statistics look very poor for the guests. Last time they have won an away game was on 14th December against Chelsea. The team can not be proud of their defence this season. They concede 4th most – 1.69 – goals per game in the league. Prayers don’t seem to have been listened as the team lost seven goals since Premier League return, where four of them were scored in the first 30 minutes of the game.

Man Utd top contributors:
- Marcus Rashford (Forward): 20 Premier League goal involvements: 14 goals + 6 assists – the Englishman is a very versatile player playing either on the wing or as a striker, therefore, his numbers are influenced by the formation.
