Predicted Bournemouth Line-up To Face Manchester United In The Premier League
Bournemouth are pretty much safe in the Premier League now on 38 points and are now playing to get as high up as they possibly can.
They come up against a Manchester United side who are very much licking their wounds after that defeat to West Brom which handed their fiercest rivals the title the other day and will most likely come out all guns blazing.
Probable Bournemouth XI
Manager: Eddie Howe
Asmir Begovic (GK)
Has had a good run of games recently and there was nothing he could really do against any of the Liverpool goals. Has not had a clean sheet for a while and will be looking for one before the end of the season.
Charlie Daniels (LB)
The left-back had a torrid game against Liverpool and didn’t make a single challenge, winning only one header. Will be looking for an improvement against Man Utd.
Nathan Ake (CB)
Has looked very good for Bournemouth since his transfer in the summer and can actually come out of the Liverpool game with his head held high. Without him, the scoreline could’ve been even worse.
Steve Cook (CB)
The centre-back always looks powerful in the air and makes good tackles as well. Will be hoping to keep Lukaku under the wraps.
Simon Francis (RB)
Was moved into the centre against Liverpool instead of his usual right-back position and suffered as a result. Will be looking forward to getting back down the right-hand side.
Marc Pugh (LM)
Now that Stanislas is out for the rest of the season, Pugh can make the left midfield slot his own. With no goals or assists so far this season, he will be looking to improve that record before the season ends.
Dan Gosling (CM)
Gosling has really established himself in the centre of the park for Bournemouth this year. He passes the ball very well and breaks up the play of the opposition. Will have his hands full against Man Utd.
Lewis Cook (CM)
Has had a bit of a dip in form since his England call-up. This could just be coincidence but he will be looking to improve as he will want to be on ‘that’ plane in the summer.
Ryan Fraser (RM)
Bournemouth’s most creative winger and has grabbed 4 goals and 3 assists already this season in only 19 appearances. When he gets the ball, things seem to happen for the Cherries.
Joshua King (AMC)
A fantastic player who has found himself in this attacking midfield position a lot this season. Equally as good here as he is up front, he always looks a threat to the opposition defence.
Callum Wilson (ST)
Will most likely be back to replace Defoe after his poor showing against Liverpool. Will be looking to increase his goal tally before the end of the season.
