In today's Bournemouth vs Manchester United preview, we will dissect an intriguing looking Premier League tussle between the teams occupying 11th and 2nd in the current standings. The Red Devils were unconvincing in their 1-0 win over the Cherries in the reverse league meeting between the two at Old Trafford in December. Next week's fixture at Dean Court promises to be just as close.
In the weeks leading up to today's Bournemouth vs Manchester United betting tips, the home side has drawn four out of seven Premiership matches. Really, you could look at their form in two different ways - one defeat in seven looks like a positive run, though one win from the same set of fixtures could be perceived as a negative return. Bournemouth have lost only one of their last nine at Dean Court, however.
Manchester United have been recording some terrific results of late, putting Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City to the sword inside the space of a few weeks. A second place finish looks likely and though it will hurt to be pipped to the title by rivals City, Man Utd can at least point to their recent 3-2 win at the Etihad as a silver lining. Utd have won nine of their last eleven league contests in all - no other club has obtained more points in 2018.
We're backing the away side to come out on top to start our Bournemouth vs Manchester United bets and we're doing so for a couple of reasons. Utd produced a stunning second-half comeback last week to deny Manchester rivals City the Premier League title, for a few weeks at least. The Red Devil's rally in the second forty five should have confidence levels through the roof in their ranks.
The Cherries are formidable at home, though they are struggling to turn one point into three this year. Four stalemates in six suggests that they don't have the requisite quality to see games through and Spurs were the only club of note that Eddie Howe's men have taken on in the past couple of months. Spurs ran out 4-1 victors that day, which is a bad omen for the Cherries ahead of the visit of a United side playing at a similar level.
MUFC have beaten their less illustrious opponents on three of their last four meetings with them. With the players still buzzing after their dramatic derby day triumph, Utd should have all the tools they need to add another three points to the board. The Premier League football odds for an away win at Betway Sports are priced fantastically, so we recommend you give them a go.
The home team's ability to consistently find the net, irregardless of their final results had a huge bearing on the second of today's Bournemouth vs Manchester United predictions. The Cherries have now scored for ten successive matches. We have to go all the way back to their surprise 0-3 FA Cup loss at Wigan in January to find the last time they failed to hit the net.
Although Utd's overall defensive figures are among the best in England this season, it might surprise you to learn that they have kept just one clean sheet in their last six Premier League contests. With so many injuries at centre-half, Mourinho has rarely been able to name a settled central pairing. The result of that is disorganisation at key times in important areas.
Furthermore, in four of these teams' last five duels, both sides were able to get their name on the scoresheet. Interestingly, this season's meeting at Old Trafford was the first clash between the pair in three years where both teams didn't score. For those reasons, our English football tips are advising you to back both teams to score option this weekend.
