Bournemouth vs Man Utd by Shibby
Barclays Premier League action for me tomorrow (14/08/2016). This game will be played at the Vitality Stadium and will kick off at 13:30 (UK time). This will be both teams first game of the season and looks set to be a cracker. Bournemouth had a great season last year in my opinion and avoiding the drop was a huge achievement for the team, also the gaffer Eddie Howe. He's done a great job at Bournemouth and I know that many England fans fancy him as a future manager of the national team once he gains a little more experience.
Bournemouth have played several pre season games in preparation for the start of the season, however, the few that I've seen haven't impressed me too much, I know you can't read into friendlies too much and that players always rise to the occasion when it comes to Premier League games, especially against Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United side.
Bournemouth have brought a couple of players in, however, no one who will light the season up. Ibe, Cook and Ake being the key 3. However, they have lost a great player in Matt Ritchie who went to Newcastle United.
As for Manchester United, their squad pretty much speaks for itself! Not only have they brought in some real quality players, they have also brought in one of the worlds best managers in Mourinho! I've no doubt that he will do a great job at United and I'm sure he will push City, Chelsea and Arsenal all the way for the title this year.
I expect United to line up with a 4-2-3-1 with Zlatan as a lone striker, however, he will have a lot of support from his attacking players, Martial, Mata, Rooney etc. Like Bournemouth, United haven't had a great pre season in terms of results, however, what they have done more than Bournemouth is compete in a competitive game, they won Leicester City 2-1 and won the Charity Shield. This will have given the whole squad a lift and it's always good to start the season off with a win.
United have shown they an spend the money, now they need to start the season off with a win, a game which I think they will get 3 points from. I don't think it will be an easy game, however, I expect Mourinho get get a win in his first league game as United manager. I think that 1.87 is great value with BetVictor. Good Luck all.
