Manchester United and Both Teams To Score

Manchester United 2-1

Red Devils can build on Chelsea triumph

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag was quick to insist the club are not in crisis mode earlier this week and they can justify that assertion by following Wednesday’s win over Chelsea with victory against Bournemouth.

Ten Hag still has his doubters and the mood around Manchester United is still pretty sombre but the Red Devils moved to within three points of Manchester City with their midweek win over the Blues.

A rare double from Scott McTominay either side of Cole Palmer’s equaliser handed Untied a 2-1 win over Chelsea at Old Trafford and they are back at the Theatre of Dreams on Saturday for the visit of Bournemouth.

Given the frustration directed towards Ten Hag, it would be easy to assume United’s form is lagging but they have indeed won six of their last eight Premier League assignments.

Their only defeats during that run came at home to Manchester City and on the road to Newcastle and their situation is not as dire as the media narrative may suggest.

That said, they may not have things all their own way this weekend with the visiting Cherries in excellent form under Andoni Iraola.

In-form Cherries will make life tough for United

Something has clicked in the Bournemouth camp in the last month or so with the club reeling off wins over Newcastle, Sheffield United and Crystal Palace either side of a 2-2 draw with Aston Villa in their last four games.

Despite often giving up possession, they are a dangerous side on the break and Dominic Solanke in particular has hit a rich vein of form, scoring three goals in his side’s last four matches.

The Cherries have not been shut out in any game since their 3-0 defeat to Everton at the start of October, having scored in eight games straight.

That run featured goals against Liverpool, Manchester City and Newcastle among others and they should also find a way past the Red Devils.

But Manchester United have stabilised in the Premier League and should have enough to edge a high-scoring contest.

Scoreline could be tight at Old Trafford

In terms of a correct score, all but one of United’s league wins in the 2023-24 season have been by a single goal, so a 2-1 victory for the hosts looks a sensible pick.

There is growing pressure on Marcus Rashford to make an impression going forwards for United but Ten Hag can at least count on Alejandro Garnacho for inspiration in the final third.

The tricky Argentinian scored a wonder goal against Everton last month before also netting in the 3-3 draw with Galatasaray and he is a decent goalscorer selection.
