When Manchester United and Bournemouth play at Old Trafford on December 9, they’ll be seeking to build on their midweek triumphs in the Premier League.
After a four-day stretch of extremely dismal losses to Newcastle United (losing 1-0) and Galatasaray, Erik ten Hag put a stop to their bad run by leading his team to a 2-1 triumph at home versus Chelsea. Bruno Fernandes’ first-half penalty attempt left the game goalless, but Scott McTominay’s goal rescued the embarrassment of the United captain by giving the Red Devils a vital 3 points. Although Raphael Varane skipped the match because of a sore back, Luke Shaw took Victor Lindelof’s position at center back during the break, and Manchester United might have survived the Chelsea victory without any serious injury concerns. Some players, including Alejandro Garnacho and Bruno Fernandes, seemed to be stumbling toward the end of the match, but it might just be the product of their intense effort at Old Trafford. Despite the impressive performance, there will probably be some rotation because of the impending Champions League matchup with Bayern Munich.
Bournemouth defeated Crystal Palace 2-0 on the road thanks to goals from Marcos Senesi and Kieffer Moore either before or after halftime. Despite having a terrible defensive performance with 71 goals in 38 rounds, Bournemouth finished 15th last season. Although having a new coach, they are once again a poor defensive team that gives up 2 goals a game. Nevertheless, they have gained 10 points in 4 matches, including noteworthy victories over Newcastle and Crystal Palace, so the previous few games have given them cause for optimism. They are 9 points outside of the relegation zone at 15th right now. Up to 7 players are anticipated to miss this matchup with Manchester United. Ryan Fredericks, Emiliano Marcondes, and Darren Randolph, all long-term absences, remain far from match fitness. Tyler Adams, won’t be able to play again until February after having hamstring surgery, while Max Aarons is scheduled to return in 2024.
