Despite going winless in four Premier League (PL) matches (D3, L1), Bournemouth can still boast just one defeat in six PL games. Notably, they conceded over 1.5 goals in just one of those fixtures and scored two or more in three.
The ‘Cherries’ have often been quick off the mark this season, scoring 46.15% of their league goals inside the opening half-hour of their matches. However, they tend to struggle at holding onto an early lead and have led at half-time in just two of their ten PL fixtures this term.
Although improving, Manchester United have still won just one of their previous five PL games (W1, D2, L2), and last weekend’s 3-1 win at Norwich was just the second time that the ‘Red Devils’ netted over 1.5 goals this league campaign.
Although not frequent goal scorers, they are currently conceding an average of just one PL goal per game. As a result, 70% of their league fixtures have produced under 2.5 goals.
Man United are hoping to make it four competitive away victories in a row and can boast four wins across the previous four H2Hs – the last three of which saw them score 2+ goals.
Players to watch: Callum Wilson (BOU) scored the last time these teams met at the Vitality Stadium and can boast five PL goals this season – three were netted in the second half.
In fine form, Marcus Rashford (MUN) has five goals across five competitive matches for club and country – four arriving in the first half. He also scored in the last H2H.
Stat attack: Bournemouth has conceded 30.77% of their PL goals in the opening 15 minutes.
Man United have been leading at half-time in 70% of their PL matches.
The last four PL H2Hs produced an average of 4.25 cards per fixture.
