Bournemouth vs Manchester United

England Premier League – Round  35

18/04/2018

 

The league table flatters Eddie Howe’s side, with Bournemouth higher in the standings than performances warrant. They will be seeking to improve on their 3 – 0 defeat to Liverpool last time out. The same can also be said of today’s opponents, who are higher in the table than warranted on our expectations. Manchester United will take some stopping and it’s very doubtful that Bournemouth has the defensive quality to do so, with over 2.5 goals in the match the suggested bet.
