Bournemouth vs Manchester United Match Preview
Manchester United will look to dump their weekend disappointment, when they gifted the title to derby rivals Manchester City, but will need a quick turnaround. This Bournemouth vs Manchester United fixture will be played at the Vitality Stadium on Wednesday, April 18, so check out our Bournemouth vs Manchester United prediction and betting tips.
Bournemouth had an unfruitful weekend when they travelled to Anfield and were beaten 3-0. That was nothing to be ashamed of, considering the kind of form the Reds are currently in. However, there are hopes within the home camp that they would perform better in this Bournemouth vs Manchester United fixture. The worry for the hosts is that the Cherries aren’t exactly in any kind of winning form, having won only one of their last eight league games. However, they have made sure that beating them is difficult as well and have lost only thrice in 15 matches since Christmas. This form has seen them propel to 11th in the table after 34 games (38 pts, W9, D11, L14) which is a comfortable ten-points ahead of the bottom three. They can be confident of being safe for the season, although a push to the top half of the table is desired.
United had put a terrible performance at home to the basement club West Bromwich Albion losing 1-0. Coming in the wake of a stunning 3-2 win over City at the Etihad, this loss only highlighted the inconsistencies within the Red Devils squad. Ahead of this Bournemouth vs Manchester United fixture, the visitors are second after 33 games (71 pts, W22, D5, L6). They have a cushion of a game and a point over third-placed Liverpool, but on current form the Reds look favourites to bridge that gap and leap over United. They have failed to win seven of their 16 league games away from home and have only kept two clean sheets in their last 12 trips.

Bournemouth vs Manchester United Prediction
United have been easily the most inconsistent side of the league, thrilling their fans on one day and frustrating them the very next. With Bournemouth having a great scoring record at home – finding the net in each of their last eight home league games, it won’t be a surprise if Bournemouth manages to stun United. The Red Devils will also have to cast one eye on the upcoming FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham, which means the hosts are favourites to win all three points.
