Manchester United have got the bit between their teeth and can further enhance their top-four prospects by brushing aside a beleaguered Bournemouth outfit.
The Red Devils produced some scintillating football in their last two Premier League games, whereas the second-from-bottom Cherries seem badly out of sorts.
We’re backing the hosts to outscore their opponents in both halves at 11/10 for our initial Man Utd vs Bournemouth prediction.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United were clearly brimming with confidence when cruising to a 3-0 triumph at Brighton on Tuesday, extending their unbeaten run to 15 games in all competitions.
Teenage winger Mason Greenwood opened the scoring, before Bruno Fernandes added a double in yet another man-of-the-match display.
The 25-year-old has now notched five goals in just eight Premier League appearances and been the catalyst for United climbing back up to fifth in the table.
“He’s been great ever since he signed,” defender Victor Lindelof told the club website.
“Straight away he showed his quality and he came in and wanted the ball and created a lot of chances for us.
“So he’s been brilliant and he can keep improving and keep doing the same things.”
Lindelof believes the new-found belief within Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad can continue to stand them in good stead.
He added: “I think we show it every time we walk on the pitch now, what a team we can be and what type of football we can play.
“We controlled the game throughout the 90 minutes and performed some really, really good football out there, so I’m very, very happy.”
Looking at the Man Utd vs Bournemouth odds, we like 11/2 for a third consecutive 3-0 success in this competition.
Last Man Utd line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, Pogba, Fernandes, Matic, Martial, Rashford, Greenwood.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth have suffered three straight defeats since the restart to make it just one point gained in seven league games, leaving them in serious relegation trouble.
The Cherries were alarmingly poor when falling 4-0 behind at home to Newcastle on Wednesday and Dan Gosling’s stoppage-time finish provided little consolation.
“It’s tough at the moment to sit here and pick out the positives,” admitted Eddie Howe. “We know the situation we’re in is difficult.
“I can see close at hand what it means to the players. How much they are hurting.
“This wasn’t pretty, but I can assure everybody it wasn’t through a lack of effort.”
Tottenham, Leicester and Manchester City must be faced after this test, with games against Southampton and Everton completing a daunting run-in, so the odds are against Bournemouth surviving.
Paul Pogba bagged a brace against the Cherries when United won 4-1 in this corresponding fixture last season and has caught the eye since coming back from injury.
Let’s finish off our Man Utd vs Bournemouth betting tips by taking 13/5 for the France midfielder to score at any time and 15/2 he breaks the deadlock.
Last Bournemouth line-up: Ramsdale, Cook, Ake, Smith, Kelly, Lerma, Brooks, Billing, King, Solanke, Groeneveld.
Brighton 0-3 MAN UTD – Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes (2)
BOURNEMOUTH 1-4 Newcastle – Dan Gosling
Head-to-head: Bournemouth 1-0 Man Utd, Man Utd 4-1 Bournemouth, Bournemouth 1-2 Man Utd, Bournemouth 0-2 Man Utd, Man Utd 1-1 Bournemouth
