Manchester United vs. AFC Bournemouth: Premier League – Match Preview

Manchester United entertain AFC Bournemouth in the first match of the Premier League weekend.

United are in excellent form and won the EFL Cup last time out, edging past Southampton in a classic.

Two goals from Manolo Gabbiadini levelled things up for the Saints, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s late winner was the difference.

In comparison Bournemouth are struggling and another loss last time out means they are edging closer to the relegation zone.

Joshua King’s penalty gave them a lead away at West Brom, but they ended up losing 2-1 at the Hawthorns.
