Man Utd

*Odds correct as of 07:30 on December 8

Man Utd closed the gap on the top four in midweek with their 2-1 win over Chelsea. With Manchester City and Tottenham both dropping points, the Red Devils are now just three points outside the top four. Only the top three teams have managed more wins than Man Utd in the Premier League this season, which is strange considering many would consider their campaign underwhelming so far. Infact, since the start of October, only Arsenal (19) have won more Premier League points than Manchester United (18), with the Red Devils winning six of their eight games in that time.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, moved themselves slightly further away from the relegation zone with their win over Crystal Palace in midweek. The Cherries are in good form right now, unbeaten in their past four games with three wins and one draw. In that run, Bournemouth have beaten Newcastle and also drawn with Aston Villa, showing they can rock with the top teams.

It has been am impressive turnaround for Bournemouth, picking up 13 points in their last six games (W4 D1 L1), after winning just three points in their first nine Premier League games this season (D3 L6). A win here for Andoni Iraola’s side would see them record victories in three consecutive Premier League away games for just the second time, after April this year.

Man Utd vs Bournemouth match tip

European Handicap: Draw -1 @ 5/2

Despite winning nine times this season, Man Utd haven’t been the one for convincing victories. The Red Devils’ 2-1 win over Chelsea in midweek was the eighth time Man Utd have won by a single-goal margin. The only exception was a 3-0 win over Everton at Goodison Park.

Man Utd vs Bournemouth Bet-Builder tip

Over 6.5 Man Utd corners > Under 39.50 booking points > Marcus Rashford to score anytime

Marcus Rashford may not be a guaranteed starter for Man Utd right now, but he does have a good record against Bournemouth. Only against Leicester (eight) and Arsenal (six) does Rashford have more Premier League goals than he does vs the Cherries (five). The Englishman has also scored in four of his last five league games against Bournemouth, including his last three at Old Trafford. Man Utd are high up the list for corners this season, winning on average 6.93 per match. They also aren’t doing too badly for cards, averaging 4.13 per game, while Bournemouth’s average is two per match.
