Manchester United vs Bournemouth Betting Tips: Form Guide

Manchester United Look To Turn A Corner

The Red Devils’ difficult season has been an eventful one but also, we think, one that at times has been a touch overblown. We’re not trying to downplay their shocking 3-2 loss to Brighton, their 3-0 mauling from Tottenham or their comprehensive 3-1 loss to Liverpool – one so damning it ended the tenure or José Mourinho – but we still think, in some circles, talk of their fall was occasionally exaggerated.

United had issues for sure, but they are still home to some of the finest talents in the world. On many of their darkest days, they have still found themselves at the upper half of the Premier League, a spot most teams would envy. Plus, despite the naysayers, the Manchester United vs Bournemouth betting tips still have them as overwhelming favourites. Much of the negative press has been, we feel, only so sensational due to their incredibly lofty reputation.

After all, they’ve looked every bit the world beaters we’re used to since that Liverpool clash and a change in management. Admittedly, it’s only been two games but their dominant performances in their 5-1 win over Cardiff and a 3-1 victory over Huddersfield has put the rest of the league on notice. We have to imagine that the Manchester United vs Bournemouth match previews wouldn’t be quite so positive about the home side without these games. United finally have a sense of direction again, and that could spell bad news for Bournemouth

Bournemouth Struggle To Halt Decline

There’s a terrible sense of bad timing for Bournemouth coming into this contest. Not only has their season been on a steady downhill trajectory since the beginning of November, but their opponents look like they may have shaken off many of the issues that have plagued them since the start of the league. Those hoping for a Brighton style upset may have had better chances at the beginning of the season.

Speaking of Brighton, some good news for Bournemouth fans is the fact that they managed to best that side in a fab 2-0  performance, highlighted by double goals from Welsh international David Brooks. The bad news, however, is that this is one of only two games they have won in the last two months, with the other being another excellent display in a 2-1 win over Huddersfield. These wins show us two things: Bournemouth are capable of great performance and securing victories, but also that they simply do not manage it often enough.

Their litany of losses ends, as of now, with a bitter 5-0 loss to Tottenham, in which the Cherries were utterly outclassed by the Spurs goal scoring machine. Many are expecting something similar here, and Bournemouth are going to have to bring their A-game to prove the doubters wrong.

Manchester United vs Bournemouth Preview: Recent Meetings

Although these two teams first met in 1949 – which was a 6-0 win for the Red Devils against what was then known as Bournemouth and Boscombe Athletic – the modern head-to-head history, or at least those recent enough to be considered relevant to Manchester United vs Bournemouth betting tips for today, began in 2015. That game went 2-1 in favour of Bournemouth. Unfortunately, this represents the only victory for the Cherries in the new millennium.

United followed this up with back-to-back 3-1 wins in 2016, and continued this winning streak with the exception of a 1-1 draw in 2017, triumphing 1-0 that same year. In 2018, they bested Bournemouth 2-0 in April and 2-1 in November. The latter game should make an interesting contrast, as it is recent enough to give a serious indication of the impact that the recent changes made to United have had.

In the end, the recent meetings give the home team a clear advantage but leave enough intrigue to make an upset a possibility.

Manchester United vs Bournemouth Prediction: United Continue Comeback

What a difference a few months make. Although we don’t think there’s any point this season in which Bournemouth would be clear favourites in the eyes of bookmakers, there’s little doubt that were this an earlier fixture, the dynamic of the Cherries coming off the back of a much more successful series of results and the sense of chaos at United would have given Bournemouth fans a lot of reason to be optimistic.

However, with a reinvigorated Manchester United squad, not to mention their opponent’s recent dry spell, momentum seems very much in the favour of the home team. We think in order for the Cherries to take this one, we would have to see either another collapse in United’s cohesion – something that seems unlikely – or an extraordinary Bournemouth performance, or a mix of both. It’s not out of the realms of possibility by any means but it’s a pretty big hill to climb.

For that reason, our Manchester United vs Bournemouth prediction is for the home team to take the win and continue their comeback.
