Manchester United's last away fixture of the 2022/23 Premier League season will take place this Saturday, as Erik ten Hag's side travel to the Vitality Stadium to take on Bournemouth.

The 15:00 BST kick-off pits Gary O'Neil's rejuvenated side, who have sealed their place in the Premier League for next season, with Ten Hag's top-four-chasing Reds.

Ahead of the fixture, here's everything you need to know, from the team news, to how you can follow the action...

You can now pick your star performer in Erik ten Hag's team for the 2022/23 season.


Unfortunately for fans in the UK, this one is not being broadcast live on TV. However, you will be able to keep up to date with the action, as it happens, in our Match Centre on and in our app.

We will also be broadcasting our Match Day Live show on MUTV, bringing you exclusive insight and analysis before and after the game. The programme will begin at 13:55 BST across our official platforms.

Live radio commentary is available throughout the 90 minutes.


Short highlights from the clash on the south coast will be available two hours after full-time, with extended versions available from midnight.


Marcel Sabitzer is ruled out, after it was announced that his knee injury would see him miss the remainder of the campaign.

In training on Wednesday, both Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay returned after their respective recent lay-offs.

Raphael Varane, who started Saturday's victory over Wolves and was substituted late on as a precaution, was also out on the grass with the rest of the Reds' squad.

Donny van de Beek and Lisandro Martinez continue to work towards pre-season comebacks from their respective injuries.

For the hosts, Antoine Semenyo, Ryan Fredericks, Hamed Traore, Junior Stanislas and Marcus Tavernier have been all sidelined of late. O'Neil has a clean bill of health otherwise.

United train ahead of Cherries clash


There is good news coming out of the session, in front of our cameras at Carrington.


With the Cherries set to wear their usual home kit of red and black stripes, we can confirm that we will be decked out in the 2022/23 third shirt for the last time.

To mark the occasion, we’re offering an incredible discount on the third shirt via the United Direct Store. All three of this season’s shirts are currently reduced as we head towards the end of term, but there is an extra 25 per cent off selected lines*, including the solar slime third shirt.

This means, for example, that supporters in the UK can pick theirs up for as little as £24, plus delivery.

Grab yours today here, by using the discount code MUSALE25 – but be quick, the offer only applies while stocks last.
