AFC Bournemouth v Manchester United Preview, Premiership, Saturday 12th December 2015

AFC Bournemouth head into this game having secured a fantastic 1-0 win away against Chelsea last weekend and although the club still occupies 17th position in the premiership league table, that victory will surely have both the players and fans confident of getting at least something from this match come Saturday evening.

Manchester United head into the game currently occupying 4th position in the premiership league table, but their defeat away against Wolfsburg midweek saw them crash out of the UEFA Champions League and that will definitely have had an effect on the players and it will be interesting to see how they respond in this game.

AFC Bournemouth Team News:

The hosts have a number of casualties for this game which include Tommy Elphick, Mark Pugh, Christian Atsu, Adam Federici, Callum Wilson, Tyrone Mings and Max-Alain Gradel who all remain unavailable due to respective injuries.

The good news for Bournemouth fans though is that Lee Tomlin and Sylvain Distin both look like returing back to the starting lineup for this game.

Manchester United Team News:

The visitors also have a number of players missing for this game as Matteo Darmain, Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia and Marco Robjo all continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems.

Wayne Rooney, Morgan Schneiderlin and Ander Herrera are also all major doubts and new signing Bastian Schweinsteiger is also unavailable as he begins a three match suspension.

AFC Bournemouth v Manchester United Match Betting Odds Market

AFC Bournemouth are not fancies to win this game on Saturday evening with the online bookmakers as their current best price of 5/2 with Coral – Deposit £5 & Receive £20 Free Bets for New Customers, clearly suggests, but with a 1-0 win away last weekend against Chelsea, those odds do look value.

The Draw is a current best price of 23/10 with Bet365 – £200 Free Bets For New Customers, and could be worth something on as your main cover bet as AFC Bournemouth have defended much better in recent weeks.

Manchester United are the clear favourites to win this game and are a current best price of 13/10 with BetVictor – £50 Free Bets for New Customers Registering an Account, and this will probably attract plenty of support despite their midweek defeat in the UEFA Champions League.

AFC Bournemouth v Manchester United Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Bournemouth don’t have a great record against Manchester United having only won once in eight previous attempts, but having beaten the current defending champions Chelsea last weekend at Stamford Bridge 1-0, the players will obviously be confident of carrying on the party with another victory against another top club come Saturday evening.

Manchester United are missing some key players from their squad and don’t look as strong as they have been in recent months and with a midweek defeat against Wolfsburg which ended their Champions League hopes this season, I am expecting the visitors to be suffering from a bit of confidence in this match.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip is going to be for Both Teams to Score as with the average goals per game statistics expecting at least a few goals to be scored in this match, I would expect a 2-1 score-line either way, depending on which defence does the better defending.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be Anthony Martial to open up the scoring for his side as with him being United’s main striker for this game, he should get plenty of chances to get his name on the score-sheet going up against one of the worst defences in the premiership.
