Man United made it three straight Premier League victories, and five in a row in all competitions, when they recorded a 1-0 win over Wolves at Molineux on Saturday, with Marcus Rashford coming off the bench to score the only goal of the contest against Julen Lopetegui’s side.
The Red Devils have now won four of their last five in the league, while they have lost just once since the Manchester derby at the start of October, with the strong run of form moving them into fourth spot in the table, just two points behind third-placed Newcastle United, who have played a game more.
Man United are also now only four points behind second-placed Manchester City on the same number of matches (16), while Tottenham Hotspur’s home defeat to Aston Villa on Sunday means that they can move five points ahead of Antonio Conte’s team with a victory on Tuesday night.
The Cherries are currently 15th in the Premier League table, boasting 16 points from their opening 17 matches courtesy of a record of four wins, four draws and nine defeats.
Bournemouth have the worst defensive record in the league this season, having conceded 36 times, which will be a concern ahead of a trip to an in-form Man United on Tuesday night.
Man United could have Lisandro Martinez back in their starting side for this match, as the centre-back will have had almost a full week of training following his return from the World Cup.
Luke Shaw has impressed as a centre-back in the team’s last two games, but he could be moved across to left-back for this match, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka could keep his spot at right-back if Diogo Dalot is again ruled out due to a hamstring issue that he suffered at the World Cup.
Axel Tuanzebe is definitely out with a long-term issue, while Jadon Sancho (fitness) and Scott McTominay (illness) remain doubts for the 20-time English champions.
Rashford was dropped from the XI against Wolves after being late for a team meeting, but the attacker should be back in the side here, while Antony and Anthony Martial should retain their spots in the final third.
As for Bournemouth, Philip Billing is a major doubt for the contest, having been withdrawn in the first half of the defeat to Palace due to a hip problem.
Siriki Dembele is likely to take Billing’s spot in central midfield, but it could otherwise be the same side that took to the field against Palace, with Kieffer Moore and Dominic Solanke operating as the front two.
