Manchester United Starting XI Prediction at AFC Bournemouth


It’s crazy how fast things can change in the world of football. Manchester United had just gone 11 straight matches, across all competitions, without a road win. Now they’ll head to the Vitality Stadium on Saturday looking for their fourth straight away triumph.

The venue, Dean Court, and the opponent (AFC Bournemouth) are conducive to such a thing. The Cherries are winless in their last four league outings. At home, Bournemouth have won just two of their 11 last Premier League matches. They are likely to concede at least one goal too; as they have kept just two clean sheets over that span. That all said, let’s take a look at who OGS might select for his first team on the weekend.

Also, in case you missed it, United received a very favorable EFL Cup draw today. One player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will almost certainly select is Fred, who the Norwegian said will continue starting in the place of Paul Pogba while the Frenchman remains injured.
