Team News: Jones, Rojo, Shaw start against Bournemouth

Manchester United entertain Bournemouth at Old Trafford this afternoon in the first Premier League match of March in which United could rise to fifth ahead of Liverpool, and possible stay there if they lose to Arsenal in the evening kick off. United have been in some good form results-wise recently, losing their last Premier League match in October against Chelsea, also sitting undefeated in their last eight matches in all competitions. Fresh from their EFL Cup triumph over Southampton on Sunday where Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a brace to win the cup for United, scoring his 25th and 26th goals of the season, which at 35 shows just how good the Swede is to grace the Premier League like he has this season. Jose Mourinho has ruled out Henrikh Mkhitaryan from this match, but he should be back at some point in the next week after returning to training on Friday.

Manchester United:

Valencia, Jones, Rojo, Shaw;

Manchester United and Bournemouth have played eleven matches in the history of both clubs, United have won seven, drawn twice and lost twice – the match at the Vitality Stadium last season. At Old Trafford last season, a few days after it was originally scheduled, United beat Bournemouth 3-1, which was the result away at the start of the season. Mourinho will be looking for a United double over Bournemouth, a third win in a row against Eddie Howe’s side, which will propel United to a better position in the league, which should also commence their rise to fight for a top four finish this season. United play one other Premier League fixture this month, away to Middlesbrough on Sunday 19th March, just before an international break, which will lead United into a busy April, after a busy March.
