MUN vs BOU Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Manchester United will be looking for their third consecutive win in the Premier League when they host Bournemouth at the Old Trafford, in Manchester, on Sunday night (IST).
Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s second assignment with the club has started in a dream fashion. The 45-year-old Norwegian, nicknamed “The Baby-faced Assassin” has brought a breath of fresh air to Old Trafford after he replaced Jose Mourinho at the hot seat of Manchester United.
Right from the first season even when Mourinho won two trophies, including the 2017 Europa Cup, it never felt a good match. The former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss was always seen fretting over refereeing decisions, City’s vast pockets and not to mention all the off-court dramas involving the players. This is the third time in Mourinho’s last three jobs that he is said to have lost the dressing room.
But he is past now and United are already looking like moving away from their troubles. Paul Pogba is playing like he plays for France or used to for Juventus. The 25-year-old is being employed in a more advanced role with two defensive players playing behind him in the last two games.
However, despite the last two wins, the Red Devils are still eight points away from the top-4. But the 2nd half of the season is still to go and there are a huge 57 points on offer in that period. So anything can happen if United are able to maintain consistency.
Four losses in the last five games, three of which have come in the Premier League, have derailed Bournemouth’s campaign to some degrees. But it doesn’t take anything away from the incredible job Eddie Howe is doing at Dean Court ever since he took the reign back in 2012.
Playing in front of only 11,464 fans at home, which is the smallest stadium in the Premier League, and running the club on a budget which is lower than even the monthly wage bill of most clubs in England’s top-flight football, Howe deserves huge applause for the way he goes about his business at this club.
Every time a new season starts, the Cherries remains one of the candidates to fight for the survival. But they are pulling above their weights since they got promoted and that’s the case this time as well.
At the moment, Bournemouth are 12th in the table with 26 points from the first 19 matches. They are a huge 14 points away from the relegation zone and should not be in danger all season.

MUN vs BOU Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Both Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku have been seen in the training ground, meaning the duo could return in this match. But we have gone with Rashford upfront with the Bournemouth’s super striker Callum Wilson playing alongside him.
We have the Pogba, and Matic also in the middle of the park.
Lukaku is the change upfront, while Lingard and Fred have come in the midfield.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Manchester United are looking to rebuild once again under new manager Solskjaer. The kind of football we saw in the last two games should give Red Devils fans some confidence for their team’s future.
A home win.
