Manchester United face AFC Bournemouth in their opening match of the new Premier League season this afternoon. Last season, this fixture saw United defeated 2-1 by a resurgent Bournemouth with Jose Mourinho looking to change that and have his new side start the new season with a bang. Manchester City beat Sunderland 2-1 yesterday, albeit from a penalty and a late own goal scored by former United Academy player Paddy McNair. United will be looking to match City to form a title charge this season. Premier League champions Leicester City were beaten by Hull City in the early kick-off on Saturday, so United will also be looking to take advantage of that. Mourinho has a full squad aside of Chris Smalling and Paul Pogba, who are both suspended for today’s match. Here are the starting XI’s and list of substitutes for both teams.
