Manchester United v AFC Bournemouth Preview, Premiership, Sunday 15th May 2016

The final game of the season for both clubs and one that Manchester United will be desperate to win if they are to have any chance of securing a champions league place next season.

United need to pick up the maximum 3pts from this match and hope that arch rivals Manchester City lose their game away against Swansea City, a draw would not be good enough for United, so they will be hoping that Swansea City can end their season on a high note.

AFC Bournemouth just about survived relegation this season and I would probably expect their manager to use this game as a chance to provide some of his fringe players with a chance to gain some much needed experience.

If that’s the case then this would obviously make the game a much easier one for the hosts and I do expect United to win this game in comfortable fashion, although if the visitors do play their strongest team available then this could be a tricky final match for the hosts.

Manchester United Team News (Courtesy of PremierLeague.com):

Ashley Young could be in line for a return, but Adnan Januzaj has joined Matteo Darmian (ankle) on the sidelines after picking up a knock during training.

Bastian Schweinsteiger remains unavailable, while Luke Shaw will not make his comeback from a broken leg suffered in September this season and Marouane Fellaini remains suspended.

AFC Bournemouth Team News (Courtesy of PremierLeague.com):

Bournemouth will be without Sylvain Distin (back) and Adam Smith (hernia). Other than these two players the visitors have a full squad to choose their starting lineup from.

4 of those Goals have been scored in the previous 2 matches played between the two clubs at the Old Trafford which generates us an average goals per game statistic of 2.00.

Both sets of statistics shown above seem to indicate that this game should see at least a couple of Goals scored on Sunday afternoon and betting markets such as Both Teams to Score and Total Match Goals 2 or 3 look good betting options for this match.

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

Manchester United will be kicking themselves at having suffered that 3-2 defeat against West Ham in the final game ever to be played at the Boleyn Ground as failure to win that match now means that even if they win this game on Sunday afternoon, they will be relying on Swansea City to beat Manchester City for them to secure that final big money champions league place for next season.

I do expect the hosts to win this game as I can’t really see any of the Bournemouth players really breaking into too much of a sweat as this game means absoloutely nothing to them with the exception of possibly ending the season on a high note by beating the great Manchester United.

However, I certainly don’t see that happening and United to breeze to the victory on Sunday afternoon with Martial and Wayne Rooney all looking to end their season on a high note by getting their names on the scoresheet.

Onto some predictions for this game then and our Banker Free Tip will be Anthony Martial to Score & Manchester United to Win as with the United striker having been in good form in front of goal recently, he looks the main United player to score the goals in this match.

Our First Goalscorer Free Tip will be for Manchester United striker Anthony Martial to score the first goal of the game and he is currently the clubs top goalscorer this season and with Bournemouth unlikely to put up too much of a fight, he should get plenty of chances to add more goals to his end of season tally.
