Bournemouth vs Man Utd
• Man Utd 5/4
• Bournemouth 23/10
• Draw 9/4
”Boring” Man United are off to Bournemouth for the next of the Premier League fixtures but will they be able to salvage anything from a week that saw them miss out on the last sixteen in the Champions League. Louis van Gaal’s team has disappointed so far this season in so many ways, but should we take advantage of UK gambling laws to bet on the Premier League clash on the coast being a win or a wash out for United?
Manchester United‘s loss against Wolfsburg midweek has left van Gaal’s guys looking just a wee bit sheepish and without a win in four games now, and the last of their Premier League games that ended in a win was against Watford. Of course there were reasons for their failure in Germany, van Gaal himself complaining that the dressing room had been too warm, a dirty trick of their hosts, and that was why they’ll be in the Europa League. Yeah, right Louis, of course it is.
Of course you can always bet on the Premier League managers who are losing to come up with excuses, but Louis will have done himself few favors with such a manifestly lame explanation for a lack luster display that failed to achieve the basic aim of football, scoring more than the other team. It remains to be seen if there will be Premier League goals galore as this disappointed band head to the coast for a clash with Bournemouth.
United The Team To Back If You Bet On The Premier League This Weekend
Bournemouth’s form has been on the climb of late, from losing against Southampton and Newcastle they got draws with Swansea and Everton and then a classic win over Chelsea whose Premier League scores have been woeful to say the least. Can they continue this improvement in Premier League results against Man Utd this weekend? Well lets not forget that Chelsea are hardly tough opposition at the moment if you’re Premier League players, it’s overseas teams that have to be wary of them.
It must also be mentioned that Bournemouth hover just goal difference away from the Premier League relegation zone, and Man Utd aren’t push overs. This is probably why the bookies like Bet365 think the Red Devils will bounce back, giving them 5/4 on the win as opposed to Bournemouth’s 23/10, although that might close up a bit before kick off if van Gaal keeps whining. As Premier League predictions go this one is a stroll in the park – put in on United, Bournemouth got lucky against Chelsea, a feat they are unlikely to repeat……but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have another look.
