Manchester United vs Bournemouth Odds
Manchester United have been in electric form since the arrival of Bruno Fernandes, as the Portuguese midfielder has added another element to this Red Devils side. Since Fernandes was brought in from Sporting Lisbon United haven’t lost the game. The Red Devils have been in excellent form since the restart as they have won three of their four games in all competitions.
The only game that Unite dropped points in was their 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur. United have been in excellent form since then, as they have scored eight goals in three games. Their most recent victory was against Brighton & Hove Albion in midweek as United ran out 3-0 winners. Fernandes scored twice in that success, while Mason Greenwood also got his name on the scoresheet.
While United have been in excellent form, the same can’t be said of their opponents this weekend. Bournemouth have been in terrible form since the restart as they have lost all three games since the restart. The Cherries have scored just once in that space of time, with that strike coming in the last minute of their 4-1 defeat against Newcastle United. That loss was their last outing in the Premier League and was an immediate indicator of the troubles they have. On that form, there isn’t much hope that they will be able to survive this season.
They dropped down a place with the big defeat, and they are now one point away from safety and three points away from West Ham United. Meanwhile, a victory for Manchester United this weekend will lift them up to fourth in the Premier League standings.
Recent Meetings: Manchester United vs Bournemouth
Bournemouth will at least take confidence that they have beaten United in two of the previous nine meetings. However, they have never won at Old Trafford. They have lost on three of their four previous visits. The Cherries won the fixture earlier in the season 1-0. Meanwhile, United thumped Bournemouth 4-1 in this fixture last season, with Paul Pogba scoring a brace in that success.
Manchester United vs Bournemouth Picks
There will be an expectancy on Manchester United that they will be able to claim the three points in this fixture easily. The top four is well within their sights now, and if they show the same form as they did against Brighton, then it could be a big win against the Cherries this weekend.
Pick: Manchester United to win 4-0 at +900 with Bet365.
