Confirmed Starting XI: Martial, Rashford, Pereira and James lead the attack against Bournemouth; Williams, Mata and Lingard on the bench

Manchester United are on the road again this weekend and will face Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium in the Premier League. It will be the first fixture to be played this weekend, kicking off at 12:30 today, live on BT Sport 1 HD in the United Kingdom. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United will be seeking to continue their unbeaten streak.

It has been the longest unbeaten streak of this season, in fact, if you look back to last season, up until United beat Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League, that was their last biggest unbeaten run, which lasted for five matches, coming after a 2-0 defeat to PSG. It was an eleven match unbeaten run before that, something Solskjaer would like to see again.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Young;

McTominay, Fred;

James, Pereira, Rashford;

Martial

Substitutes:

Romero; Rojo, Williams; Mata, Lingard, Garner; Greenwood

Bournemouth:

Ramsdale;

Smith, Cook, Ake, Salguero;

Fraser, Lerma, Billing, Wilson;

Wilson, King

Substitutes:

Boruc, Francis, Solanke, Groeneveld, Cook, Kelly, Mepham

United and Bournemouth have played 16 times in the history of both clubs. United has won 11 times, drawn 3 times and lost two times. United are undefeated in the last seven matches, winning six times and drawing once. The last defeat to Bournemouth came on the 12 December 2015 at the Vitality Stadium, a 2-1 defeat.

Marouane Fellaini equalise after Junior Stanislas’ opening goal only for former United academy graduate Josh King to score the winning goal in the match. Prior to that match, United and Bournemouth had not met since 1989 with the last defeat going back five years earlier, a 2-0 defeat in the FA Cup in 1984.
