Match Venue and Kickoff Time

The Vitality Stadium will be the battleground for an intense Premier League clash on Saturday as AFC Bournemouth hosts Manchester United. The match, scheduled to kick off at 15:00 West African Standard Time, promises to be a thrilling encounter between two teams with different objectives.

Match Preview

Bournemouth has already secured their Premier League status for another season, a remarkable achievement for the south coast side.

Despite suffering back-to-back defeats, they can approach their final two games without the burden of pressure.

With nothing to lose, Bournemouth will be aiming to give their home fans a memorable performance against one of England's elite teams.

On the other hand, Manchester United's top-four spot is far from guaranteed due to their inconsistent away form.

Sitting just one point above in-form Liverpool Erik Ten Hag's side knows that every point is crucial in their pursuit of Champions League qualification.

With pressure mounting, United will be determined to claim a victory and strengthen their position in the league standings.

While Bournemouth should not be underestimated on their home turf, Manchester United's superior quality and higher stakes make them the favorites to come out on top. However, they cannot afford to be complacent against a spirited Bournemouth side.

Team News

AFC Bournemouth

Bournemouth will be without five key players for the match, including Hamed Traore, Antoine Semenyo, Marcus Tavernier, Ryan Fredericks, and Junior Stanislas.

However, Adam Smith and Marcos Senesi could make a return to the starting lineup after missing their previous game.

Based on recent form and potential lineups, Bournemouth is expected to field a (4-2-3-1) formation, with players such as Solanke, Billing, and Lerma leading the attack.

Form: L-W-W-L-L

Possible Formation: (4-2-3-1)

Potential Starting XI: Neto; Smith, Mepham, Senesi, Viña; Lerma, Rothwell; Christie, Billing, Ouattara; Solanke.

Manchester United

For Manchester United, Marcel Sabitzer will be absent, and Phil Jones, Tom Heaton, Donny van de Beek, and Lisandro Martinez remain sidelined.

The fitness of Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay will be assessed, as both players are doubtful for the match.

Manchester United will likely deploy a similar formation as Bournemouth, with Fernandes, Antony, Martial and Rashford spearheading their offensive efforts.

Form: D-W-L-L-W

Possible Formation: (4-2-3-1)

Potential Starting XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Lindelof, Shaw; Casemiro, Eriksen; Anthony, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial.

With so much at stake for Manchester United, they will be eager to build on their last win to secure a vital three point in the encounter.

However, Bournemouth will be looking to play the role of spoilers and end their campaign on a high note. Fans can expect an enthralling encounter between these two teams at the Vitality Stadium.
