Man Utd predicted line-up vs. Bournemouth: one major change as senior international returns to starting XI

All the latest Man Utd team news, injury updates and predicted XI ahead of their Premier League game against Bournemouth.

Manchester United are having a bizarre season in the Premier League. Despite garnering all kinds of criticism for a sluggish start, the Red Devils now find themselves just three points behind bitter rivals Manchester City, and just nine points off the top of the table.

This weekend, Erik ten Hag’s side host Bournemouth at Old Trafford, and will be hoping to build on a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Chelsea in midweek. Scott McTominay scored both goals in that clash to make it four wins out of five for United in the top flight.

For their part, Bournemouth are also undergoing something of a resurgence. The Cherries are now unbeaten in four, and have hauled themselves well clear of the relegation zone.

A 2-0 win over Crystal Palace in midweek means that Andoni Iraola’s side are now 15th in the table, with 16 points from their first 15 matches.

But how will both sides line up at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon? We’ve taken a look at their respective team news and predicted XIs below…

In midfield, Mason Mount continues to struggle with a calf issue, while Casemiro is a long-term absence as a result of hamstring injury.
