The stats behind our Bournemouth vs Man Utd predictions:

  • Both teams have scored in Man Utd’s last seven Premier League away games.
  • Man Utd lost two of their last three Premier League away matches, while Bournemouth are on a three-game winning streak at home (all by a one-goal margin).
  • Man Utd opened the scoring in five of their last six Premier League away games.

Is Manchester United’s Champions League dream over? 

Having picked up just five points from a possible 18 in their last six Premier League matches the Champions League is looking a long way away for Mancheser United.

Going into this weekend, they currently sit in 6th place, 11 points behind both Tottenham in fourth and Aston Villa in fifth with just seven games remaining. The dream isn’t over for Erik ten Hag’s side altogether, especially with some very winnable fixtures coming up, but they will have to be near perfect for the remainder of the campaign if they are going to be at Europe’s top table in 2024/25.

Defensively they have a problem, conceding more shots than any other side in Europe’s top five leagues during this calendar year and have dropped 15 points from winning positions in the Premier League this season, their most ever in a single campaign. They’ve also led late in each of their last three, but failed to win any of them (1-1 v Brentford, 3-4 v Chelsea, 2-2 v Liverpool).

Bournemouth, meanwhile saw their mini unbeaten run of five games (W4, D1) come to an end with a 2-1 away defeat to Luton last time out, so will be looking to put things right at the Vitality, where they have won the last three. Another win here would see them win four consecutive Premier League home games for the first time ever in the Premier League.
