Confirmed Starting XI: Lingard, Rashford & Martial lead the line; Darmian, Jones, Shaw & Fellaini return

Manchester United travel to the Vitality Stadium to face Bournemouth in the Premier League on Wednesday evening. On Sunday, United were beaten by West Bromwich Albion, the bottom side in the Premier League whilst Bournemouth were beaten 3-0 by Liverpool on Saturday – both will be seeking a return to winning ways this week.

United need to win this match as it will be the one which puts them level on games played (34) with Liverpool and they really need to turn that one-point lead into a four-point lead as Liverpool will be back in action this weekend.

Manchester United:

Darmian, Jones, Smalling, Shaw;

Herrera, Fellaini, Pogba;

Lingard, Rashford, Martial

Substitutes:

Manchester United and Bournemouth have played a total of 13 times competitively during the history of both clubs. The first match was played on the 8th January 1949 – a 6-0 victory for United in the third round of the FA Cup that season.

United have won eight of the encounters, drawn three times and lost twice. The last defeat to Bournemouth came on the 12th December 2015 – a 2-1 defeat at the Vitality Stadium with goals from Junior Stanislas and Josh King earning the South Coast side three points, Marouane Fellaini scoring a consolation goal for the Red Devils.

United have had two four-match unbeaten runs; the first resulting in three victories and one draw – lasting some 33 years. During that run, United scored 12 goals, conceded three and kept two clean sheets. The second four-match unbeaten run resulted in three victories and one draw.

This was more recent, starting with the 3-1 Premier League victory on the 17th May 2016 and includes the 1-0 victory at Old Trafford earlier this season. United have scored eight goals, conceding three and keeping one clean sheet. This run could be extended on Wednesday evening.
