Bournemouth vs Man Utd Prediction: Premier League Match

Premier League action returns to our screens this weekend following the drama and excitement of the midweek UEFA Champions League fixtures. Saturday brings a six-game programme from the top flight of English professional football, with the curtain going up at St James’ Park, where Newcastle United host Tottenham Hotspur. Will Ange Postecoglou’s men get the win needed to boost their top-four credentials?

The game that caught our eye is scheduled for a 17:30 GMT start when Bournemouth hosts Manchester United in a clash you can follow live on television. The Cherries enjoy home advantage but know they must be at their best to stop an improving Man Utd side that’s determined to finish the season with a flurry. Will the home team grab the points, or can United return to winning ways?

Cherries sweet run ends

Bournemouth enter the weekend in 12th place in the Premier League. Their season stats show 11 wins, eight draws, and a dozen defeats, with 45 goals scored but 55 conceded. Any season when they avoid relegation to the Championship and can safeguard their Premier League status for another 12 months at least is a successful year for Bournemouth and its fans. They’re safe following a strong run of results and could now begin to relax in the closing stages.

Bournemouth enter on the back of a surprise 2-1 defeat away to Luton Town on Saturday, but that rare loss came on the back of a great run that saw the Cherries draw one and win three games on the bounce. They are better than their league position suggests, but it’ll be interesting to see how much drive the locals have after all but securing their place at the head table for next season, barring a late collapse.

United winless in three

Man Utd start the weekend in sixth place with their season stats showing 15 wins, four draws, and a dozen defeats, scoring 45 goals and conceding 46. It wasn’t the season Man Utd fans had hoped for, but it’s not difficult to see why the club continues to perform below par. When taking a closer look at their form, we see that United has the same number of goals as their opponents in the bottom half of the table while conceding more goals than Everton, who you’ll find down in 15th place. Improvement is required at both ends of the pitch.

The visitors arrive on the back of a three-game winless streak that includes two draws and a defeat. They were last in domestic action at the weekend, fighting to a 2-2 home draw with Liverpool. The team from Anfield was the pre-game favourites to collect all three points, but United almost won, conceding late to deny their fans another thrilling victory over Jurgen Klopp’s Reds.

Bournemouth vs Man Utd prediction

Bournemouth boasts the home advantage for this game and the better recent form of the two teams involved. But it remains to be seen how dedicated they are to finishing the campaign on a high. If they can continue their winning ways, there’s no reason why the Cherries can’t secure a top-10 finish in the EPL, and they look good enough to secure a huge win over the Red Devils.

Man Utd fans will feel their side should’ve beaten Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon. It was another case of a good effort without winning an important game, and that’s becoming a bad habit for Ten Haag’s men. How much did they leave on the field against Liverpool, and how much do they have left in the tank for this game?
