The start of the Premier League weekend will see Manchester United visit Bournemouth at Dean Court Stadium, kicking off at 12:30pm local time. When the fixtures had been released in June, not many people had anticipated that Manchester United would be below Bournemouth in the league table heading into this fixture, but that is the case.

Home Team: Bournemouth

afc bournemouth betting footballA huge amount of credit has to be given to Eddie Howe, and his staff at Bournemouth for incredible work that they are achieving at the club. Maintaining Premier League status since 2015, and now are looking to challenge for European places with their explosive start to the season. The club sit in 6th place, only behind the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool. Bournemouth have won more games than games which they have dropped points in, winning six, drawing two and losing two. In one of those defeats, they were badly beaten by Burnley 4-0 at Turf Moor, but have bounced back wins in four of the last five, including 3-0 and 4-0 wins at Fulham and Watford respectively. Callum Wilson is the top goal scorer for the club, with 6 goals so far, but many other players including Ryan Fraser, Joshua King and David Brooks have been able to chip in. Could they win again and put 6 points in between them and Manchester United?

Away Team: Manchester United

manchester united betting on footballManchester United have started to perform better in their last three Premier League matches, but some critics can say they are only playing in phases instead of performing to their full potential for the full 90 minutes. Jose Mourinho was heading for the sack prior to the Newcastle game, but a second half performance there gave Manchester United some much needed belief. Manchester United’s second half performance almost got them a victory at high flyers Chelsea, and in their most recent fixture against Everton, they had looked impressive for large amounts of the game. Manchester United had looked more promising when Rashford was playing up front, who was playing there at the expense of Romelu Lukaku who hasn’t scored a goal since early September. Will Lukaku return for this fixture, and will Manchester United continue their resurgence?

Head to Head

This will be the 15th meeting between the two clubs in their history, and previously Manchester United have won 9, Bournemouth winning two and the other three being draws. Bournemouth famously defeated Manchester United in the FA Cup back in 1983, and then again the first ever league meeting between the two sides back in 2015. Manchester United have won on their two most recent visits to Dean Court, winning 2-0 in this respective fixture last season, and 3-1 in the season before that.

Predictions and Betting Tips

Bournemouth are at 12/5 to get a victory here, with Manchester United at 21/20. A draw is priced at 13/5. With the teams close in the table, the odds are relatively generous no matter who you decide to back. I would go for an away Manchester United win, because their recent form has provided the whole team confidence, and they may be able to edge out this fixture 2-1, which is at 8/1. It’s unsure who will start up front for Manchester United, so backing on in-form striker Anthony Martial would be the best bet, as he is at 7/2 to get the first goal. If you think that Bournemouth will come out of the traps quicker, then back Joshua King to score against his former club, at 6/1 to get the first goal. I expect both teams to score here, so I would recommend there being more than 2.5 goals with both teams scoring, which is priced at 1/1 (EVENS).
