Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs AFC Bournemouth

Manchester United has faced AFC Bournemouth nine times in the Premier League, with the Red Devils winning five of the previous meetings, and the Cherries just one. The series has seen one draw, and one very memorable meeting that made international headlines due to its having to be rescheduled and the bizarre reason for that delay.

United will host Bournemouth at Old Trafford on Sunday, much like they did on the final day of the 2015-16 season. That match, staged on Championship Sunday, was postponed until the following Tuesday due to a bomb scare. A security firm, conducting a training exercise, mistakenly left behind a replica of an explosive device, which caused the evacuation and cancellation.

It’s fair to say that whatever happens this weekend when the Cherries visit Old Trafford, it won’t be as wild and crazy as that fixture.

That said, let’s take a look at who could be in the United first team this Sunday.
