Match Preview: Manchester United vs Bournemouth

Manchester United will be bidding to begin 2023 in the best possible manner, as we prepare to take on Bournemouth in the Premier League on Tuesday.

United have recorded victories over Burnley, Nottingham Forest and Wolves following the completion of the mid-season break.

Bournemouth will make only their ninth ever visit to Old Trafford on Tuesday evening, hoping to improve on a steady start to life back in the top flight, following promotion from the Championship earlier this year.

Hoping to make it nine games undefeated at the Theatre of Dreams, United will be buoyed by our most recent victory on home turf, as we saw off Nottingham Forest 3-0 just last week.

United could have Lisandro Martinez back in their starting side for this match, as the centre-back will have had almost a full week of training following his return from the World Cup.

Luke Shaw has impressed as a center-back in the team’s last two games, but he could be moved across to left-back for this match, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka could keep his spot at right-back if Diogo Dalot is again ruled out due to a hamstring issue that he suffered at the World Cup.

Axel Tuanzebe is definitely out with a long-term issue, while Jadon Sancho (fitness) and Scott McTominay (illness) remain doubts for the 20-time English champions.

Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof were both on the bench against Wolves after recovering from illness, and the duo might have to accept positions among the substitutes once again.

Rashford was dropped from the XI against Wolves after being late for a team meeting, but the attacker should be back in the side here, while Antony and Anthony Martial should retain their spots in the final third.
