Bournemouth lost 3-0 at Liverpool on Saturday, and now they must face Manchester United at Vitality Stadium on Wednesday evening.
The Cherries have picked up just one win in their last six games, but they have been rather difficult to beat at home. They have lost only two of their last seven fixtures, and those defeats came against Tottenham and Liverpool.
The South Coast side sit in a rather comfortable position in the league. They occupy the 11th spot with 38 points, and another season in the top-tier of English football looks certain now.
Bournemouth haven’t been in spectacular form, but they would sense an opportunity to cause an upset against United.
United come into this game following a shock 1-0 home defeat to bottom-side West Bromwich Albion. The result confirmed Manchester City as league champions, and now United will have to fight for their second spot in the coming weeks.
The Red Devils haven’t performed particularly well on the road this season, and we can see them struggling to pick up a win in this game.
Earlier this season, United claimed a narrow 1-0 win over Bournemouth at Old Trafford, thanks to the strike from Romelu Lukaku.
