Manchester United were defeated at home by Manchester City a few days ago but unfortunately there in no time to recover from that as they are back in action against Bournemouth this week. This should be a much easier game for the Red Devils and they will hope to get three points from it.
Bournemouth are not the best team away from home and that is something that Eddie Howe and his team will need to improve as the season progresses since away points might be vital when it comes to avoiding relegation. The Cherries were lucky last weekend to get a point at Selhurst Park but this will be a much harder fixture and if they are to get anything out of the game, they must improve. Even the most optimistic Bournemouth fan will not expect anything from this fixture but I expect the team to at least put up a fight.
The biggest problem for Manchester United at the moment is the lack of form of Lukaku and that has caused them to not score as many goals as they would have liked. This is a team that needs wins if they are to even get close to Manchester City and I think that they will want to ensure this is an easy three points. After the derby, I think some players might be rested for this game but with the likes of Pogba and Martial still in the game, they should have more than enough to get the job done.
As far as betting is concerned, we are not getting the right price to bet on Manchester United to win this game and as a result I am going to avoid that bet. We should bet on the over 2.5 goals since I think that will get home with United scoring 3 or more goals themselves.
