When is Man Utd v Bournemouth?

Barring any health emergencies, the game is scheduled to take place on Saturday July 4.

What time does Man Utd v Bournemouth kick-off?

The game is scheduled for a 3pm kick-off and is one of five Premier League matches that day.

What is at stake?

There is certainly a lot riding on the game for both teams, but for very different reasons.

Manchester United have been in fine form since the restart and find themselves making a big challenge for the top four, particularly with Leicester beginning to flounder a little.

Bournemouth, and the other hand, find themselves right in the thick of a relegation scrap and go into the game perilously perched in the bottom three.

Where can I watch Man Utd v Bournemouth?

The match will be broadcast by BT Sports.

Is Man Utd v Bournemouth free-to-air?

It’s not, no. BT Sports have opted not to make any of their live Premier League matches free-to-air, so you will need a subscription.

What is the team news?

Callum Wilson missed Bournemouth’s 4-1 mauling by Newcastle and he will be missing again at Old Trafford as he completes a two-match suspension. He is likely to be replaced by former Man Utd striker Joshua King.

Man Utd have no real injury concerns ahead of the game, but may continue to rotate their line-up to keep things fresh. Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw, and Bruno Fernandes were all withdrawn on the hour against Brighton, so it is likely they will face Bournemouth.

What happened in the reverse match?

An Adam Smith goal on the stroke of half time settled this one back in November, earning Bournemouth a 1-0 win and a vital three points.

What are the odds?

The bookies are not giving Bournemouth much of a chance in this one, with Man Utd the 1/7 favourites. The Cherries can be backed at 18/1, while the draw is priced at 13/2.
