Manchester United vs Bournemouth preview & prediction

Match preview 

Manchester United will look to extend their lead in the Premier League table when they host Bournemouth at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

The Red Devils moved into fourth place with a 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday, while Bournemouth are coming off a 2-0 home loss to Crystal Palace.

Man United won their third straight Premier League game, and their fifth in a row overall, with a 1-0 win over Wolves at Molineux on Saturday, with Marcus Rashford scoring the only goal of the game against Julen Lopetegui’s side.

The Red Devils have now won four of their last five league games, and have only lost once since the Manchester derby at the start of October, propelling them into fourth place in the table, just two points behind third-placed Newcastle United, who have played one more game.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, come into this game off a 2-0 home loss to Palace on New Year’s Eve, with Jordan Ayew and Eberechi Eze scoring for the visitors.

The Cherries are currently 15th in the Premier League table, with 16 points from their first 17 games, thanks to four wins, four draws, and nine defeats.

Bournemouth have the league’s worst defensive record this season, conceding 36 times, which will be a concern ahead of a trip to an in-form Manchester United on Tuesday night.
