Right now, AFC Bournemouth are flying really high. At least for their standards. With 20 points, they’re now at the 6th spot, which is higher than Manchester United, for example. They’re hoping to become what Burnley was the last season. However, unlike Burnley who were famously great at defending, Bournemouth’s strength comes from their attack.

This team has scored 19 goals in 10 matches of the Premier League, which makes them the 5th-most prolific team in the league. And 10 of those goals were scored at their stadium. Speaking of Bournemouth’s home form, they’re still without a defeat at the Vitality Stadium this season, winning 3 and playing draw on 3 occasions.

The best thing about Bournemouth is that they’re coming into this match from a sensational run of 6 games without a defeat. Actually, they won 5 out of those 6 games, which shows how awesome their form really is. But, to be fair, they didn’t play against any team that’s as strong as Man United in those 6 rounds. Their strongest opponent was Watford, a team they beat 4-0 in an away game.

Manchester United

The Red Devils haven’t been playing very well this season, but that’s bound to come to an end at some point. After all, they have a fantastic squad. And although their manager is rather controversial, no one can deny he’s a wise man.

Manchester United surely aren’t a mid-table team, but they need to start showing their quality as soon as possible; otherwise, it’s gonna be late for their dreams to come true. The bad news is that they’re in the middle of a pretty tough schedule. Next week they play against Juve in the Champions League, after which they play the Manchester Derby against City. It would be nice for them if they went into those games with their heads held high after a good performance against Bournemouth.

But, can they do it? They got the manpower for the job, there’s no doubt about that. It’s just that they’ve disappointed their fans so many times, now no one has complete faith in them. But, they did well against Everton in the previous round and in my eyes, they’re big favorites here.

AFC Bournemouth vs Manchester United Match Prediction

Because they have a very tough schedule ahead, it’s essential for the Red Devils to get in the winning form. They’ve already started it in the game with Everton in the last round; they just need to keep it going. And I really think they can. It doesn’t matter that Bournemouth are unbeaten at home, Man United are simply much better. I see an away win here, without too many problems for the Red Devils.
