Confirmed: United team to face Bournemouth

Manchester United's team to face Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium, in today's early Premier League clash, has been announced.

The Reds arrive on the south coast hoping to achieve a fourth successive victory in all competitions, with the previous three all coming on the road.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opted to make four changes from the side that beat Chelsea in the Carabao Cup in midweek, and return to the same starting XI who were successful in the 3-1 triumph at Norwich City in our last Premier League outing.

In goal, David De Gea returns to action having sat out Wednesday night's win.

Likewise, skipper Ashley Young returns to the starting XI, having been rested at Stamford Bridge after playing at Carrow Road. 

Young is joined in a back four by Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire.

In midfield, Scott McTominay, Man of the Match in our last league game, will line up in the centre with Fred.

In attack, Marcus Rashford and Daniel James will be in the wide areas, with Andreas Pereira playing as a no.10 behind central striker Anthony Martial, the Frenchman who has netted in his last two starts for the Reds.

Explaining his decision to field the same Premier League XI that beat Norwich, Ole told MUTV:
“We hope it is going to create relationships and more understanding.

“The more they play together, the more they get to know each other. Hopefully those little margins that we had against us early on will turn towards us.”
Meanwhile, Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has made just one change from the side which drew 0-0 at Watford last Saturday, as Liverpool loanee Harry Wilson replaces Arnaut Danjuma on the right wing.
