Manchester United vs Bournemouth
Competition: Premier League
Date: 04 March 2017
Kick-off: 13:30 CET
Recently crowned EFL champions Manchester United will still be riding that wave of momentum from when they beat another South coast team, Southampton. Bournemouth looms large for the revived Red Devils, but they will be happy to take them on.
While United are on a real rise, settling into all the big changes from the beginning of the season, Bournemouth are sliding the other way as they drop further and further down the table. There was a time where Bournemouth were in the middle of the table, sitting in and around 10th, but they are winless in their last eight games. Looking across all competitions things look even worse as in their last 11 games in total there has been just the one win and in total, they are coming off a four match losing streak to face United. The relegation zone is not quiet on their mind just yet, but it is only four points away and something that will keep nagging them if they keep up this poor run.
United had to do a lot to beat Southampton, and it was an unlucky showing in the Final, but the Red Devils are just in the mood where things are going right for them. Players like Zlatan and Paul Pogba are firing for United and they are only getting better. In the League. They are unbeaten in their last 8 matches in all competitions. In fact they have barely stopped winning as they come into this game with a five game winning streak across all competitions and seemed to have put the draws behind them that were dragging them down with solid wins against Leicester and Watford.
Manchester United vs Bournemouth: Head-to-Head Stats

Manchester United vs Bournemouth: Prediction
It is a story of two teams in two very different places. Bournemouth keep losing games all over the show, and in all competition, while United can’t stop winning, or at least not losing. United are winning trophies while Bournemouth are keeping an eye on the relegation zone, and it does not look like there is any reason things will turn around in this game.
Manchester United vs Bournemouth: Tips
The only tip there really is for any game with Zlatan in it is to put money on the man to grab a goal, he cannot miss currently.
