Matchday 11 of the Premier League is almost upon us and there are some great fixtures to look forward to. Here are three bold predictions for all the action.
After a midweek flurry of Carabao Cup action, the Premier League is back on our screens this weekend and there are some exciting matches to look forward to. It all kicks off early on Saturday when Manchester United travel to Bournemouth with the Red Devils looking like a rejuvenated side.
Manchester City also play on Saturday as they host Southampton, who they comfortably disposed of in the Carabao Cup in midweek. There are two fixtures which round the week off on Sunday and the highlight of those features Tottenham’s trip to Goodison Park to face Everton. Here are three bold predictions for all the action.
3. Manchester United put four past Bournemouth
The first game of the Premier League weekend sees Manchester United travel to the south coast to face off against Bournemouth. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have had an upturn in form with three wins on the trot and a more sleek look about their overall play.
Bournemouth have been struggling of late and have’t won in the league since the end of September when they overcame Southampton 3-1. Despite this, the Cherries are still level on 13 points with this weekend’s opponents.
Eddie Howe’s side have failed to find the back of the net in in their last two matches but they have also managed to keep two clean sheets. The lack of goals will frustrate Eddie Howe but he’ll be pleased his defense have tightened up after some poor performances.
The south coast side could struggle to keep United out this weekend as the Red Devils seem to have had more fight of late. This fight has been led by Marcus Rashford, Daniel James and Anthony Martial who are starting to look like a great forward line.
James has settled into Premier League life very well whilst Marcus Rashford seems to have got his flair back, netting four in his last three domestic games. Their pace and trickery at the front could be too much for the Bournemouth defenders and it’s hard to see anything other than a Manchester United win this weekend.
Bournemouth will try to keep this game competitive but United will be too strong for them. Rashford will open the scoring early with Martial and James also finding the net. Rashford will net again to round off the scoring before Bournemouth grab a late consolation.
