AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth vs Manchester United

, KO: 17:30 Apr 13, 2024, Vitality Stadium
Manchester United

BOTH AFC Bournemouth and Manchester United will be bidding to return to winning ways in the Premier League when the pair square off at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday evening.

Andoni Iraola has impressed in his maiden season in England's top-flight and the Spaniard looked to have set the wheels in motion for a top half finish after steering his side to three home wins in succession.

However, the Cherries' charge towards a place in the top 10 came grinding to a halt last Saturday as they succumbed to a 2-1 loss at Luton.

Bournemouth boss Iraola will be hoping that setback was simply a blip as his side look to rebound with a win against Man United this weekend.

The Red Devils are having another Jekyll and Hyde campaign under Erik ten Hag's tutorship, and that was evident again last Sunday when they held arch-rivals Liverpool to a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford.

However, that stalemate has all but ended United's hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League, as they now trail Tottenham by a towering 11 points.

Outright Betting

Bournemouth romped to a 3-0 success at Old Trafford in December's reverse fixture and they are 11/8 (Bet 365) favourites to earn another win against the Red Devils on Saturday evening.

Manchester United  have failed to win any of their last three Premier League away games and the bookies' odds suggest that trend will continue, with the visitors 13/8  (William Hill) outsiders while the draw can be backed at 3/1 (William Hill).

Betting Angles

Bournemouth will have their backers as they bid to make it four home wins on the bounce but I'm Bet Builder bound where I'm going to combine Man United to Score, Ryan Christie to Commit a foul and Over 1 Match Card at 4/5 (Bet 365).

Whilst Bournemouth's form has taken an upward trajectory in recent months, they have found clean sheets hard to come by, shipping at least one goal in 11 of their last 13 Premier League matches.

With that in mind, coupled with the fact that Man United have made the net ripple in their last 14 top-flight fixtures, I'll back the visitors to get on the scoresheet at the Vitality.

For the second leg of the 4/5 (Bet 365) Bet Builder, I'll go with Bournemouth's Ryan Christie to commit a minimum of one foul during this south coast clash.

The Scottish midfielder is averaging 1.3 fouls per-game in the Premier League this season, giving away at least one free-kick in 12 of his last 14 appearances.

With a keenly-contested affair anticipated, I'll wrap up the Bet Builder by taking referee Tony Harrington to dish out at least two cards.

Both teams are averaging in the region of two yellows per 90 in the top-flight this term so a solitary two between the pair doesn't seem like too much to ask for during this televised tussle.

Moving back to the aforementioned Ryan Christie, I'm also prepared to side with the Cherries midfielder to commit two or more fouls at 13/8 on Bet 365.

This bet would have copped in five of Christie's last eight Premier League outings so the 13/8 (Bet 365) about a repeat on Saturday evening looks a great value option at the Vitality.
