Manchester United have enjoyed more away wins in the last week than they have in almost seven months. And on Saturday Solskjaer’s side travel to Bournemouth looking to make it four away wins on the bounce in just ten days.
United’s upturn in form may look and sound good, but in reality they’ve hardly been tested. Partizan aren’t exactly tearing up any trees in the Serbian League, Norwich have the worst defensive record in the Premier League and sit second from bottom and Chelsea rested a number of key players in the Carabao Cup while Ole played an almost full strength side.
But credit where credit’s due, United could only beat what was in front of them. The question now is have Man United turned a corner?
Saturday should provide some answers. Bournemouth, 9th in the table, are capable of beating anyone on their day. They’ve just not had those days enough recently failing to win in any of their last five games in all competitions.
Unlike the Bournemouth we’re used to seeing and like Manchester United goals have been hard to come by. So don’t be too surprised if this is a low scoring affair, under 2.5 goals is evens.
Marcus Rashford has scored three goals in his last three starts for United including one of the greatest freekicks you’ll ever see against Chelsea in midweek. The in form striker is 5/1 to open the scoring.
Bournemouth’s danger man will be Callum Wilson. The England international has five goals to his name this season and he’s 2/1 to score anytime.
United head to the south coast having won four of the last four head to heads with Bournemouth and they’re 6/5 favourites to claim all three points in Saturday’s early kick off. The hosts, looking for their first league win since September, are 9/4 to win, while the draw is 13/5.
