Predicted Man Utd line-up vs Bournemouth, Antony starts

Manchester United will be aiming to return to winning ways in today’s Premier League clash against Bournemouth on the road.

The Red Devils drew 2-2 against Liverpool at Old Trafford last weekend. They were poor in the first half, but managed to turn up with a good performance after the break.

They could have eventually won the game If Aaron Wan-Bissaka had not conceded a late penalty.

On the back of three winless outings, manager Erik ten Hag will want a strong response from his players in today’s game at Bournemouth.

The Cherries secured a surprise 3-0 win at Old Trafford and United have the chance to avenge the result ahead of the FA Cup semi-final.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Predicted Line-up:

Andre Onana has played every minute of the Premier League campaign, keeping eight clean sheets. He has conceded in each of his previous three league appearances and will be aiming for a shut-out at the Vitality Stadium.

In front of him, it should be the same backline from the previous game, but Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka could switch their full-back positions. Wan-Bissaka has been far from impressive with his positioning from left-back and could be swapped with Dalot.

Harry Maguire and Willy Kambwala are expected to continue at the heart of the defence. With four senior centre-backs on the sidelines, teenager Jack Kingdon could be handed a surprise debut off the bench.

Casemiro has had a difficult season and he was constantly overlapped by Liverpool midfielders with ease. Despite this, we anticipate him to continue from the number six role. He is the best option available at the moment as Kobbie Mainoo is better suited in the central position.

Further forward, we are predicting one change. Last weekend, Ten Hag essentially said that Antony could not start two games with the short turnover time. As a result, Marcus Rashford got the nod, but he was largely ineffective. The €60 million-rated star also picked up a knock against Liverpool. He is fit again, but could drop to the bench for Antony’s inclusion in the XI.

The rest of the attack should remain the same. Bruno Fernandes is a nailed-on starter from the number 10 role and showed his world-class quality against Liverpool with a stunning wondergoal from the halfway line. Alejandro Garnacho has been in fantastic form and he is better suited playing from the left wing. He scored two goals from the position against Chelsea last week.

Rasmus Hojlund should lead the attack as usual. The Dane has not been among the goals since the international break, but it has been partly due to the lack of quality service. He will be hoping that his teammates can create more chances for him this evening.
