Both teams to score goals in the first half
The betting tip is...
Man Utd to score more than 1.5 goals
Thanks to the win over Leeds United and Southampton, the Cherries have saved themselves from getting relegated this year. However, with two consecutive losses against Chelsea and Crystal Palace, Bournemouth are not full of confidence at the moment. A win over Manchester United will surely consolidate their position on the points table
Marcus Tavernier is ruled out for the remaining season because of his thigh injury.
Predicted Lineup: Neto, Smith, Senesi, Kelly, Vina; Ouattara, Lerma, Rothwell, Christie, Billing, Solanke
The Red Devils will be happy to see themselves improving their game in the second half of the Premier League. However, Erik Ten Hag still knows that there is some pending work that is yet to be done. A win in the away fixture against Bournemouth will be a big step in securing the Champions League place for next year. This surely is a must-win game for the Red Devils because any points dropped in this fixture will help Pool secure the fourth spot.
Lisandro Martinez (foot), Phil Jones (knee), Tom Heaton (ankle), Donny van de Beek (knee), and Scott McTominay (knock) are all out of action because of their respective injuries.
Predicted Lineup: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Lindelof, Shaw, Casemiro, Eriksen, Antony, Fernandes, Sancho, Martial
The Red Devils have been through a rough patch recently with two consecutive losses against Brighton and West Ham. However, their win over the Wolves will be a boost in confidence and they will surely go all guns blazing in their encounter.
They cannot afford to drop points in this tie and we predict a narrow win for the Carabao Cup champions.
