Pundit Predictions: Bournemouth v United

Saturday 13 April 2024 12:30

Former Manchester United defenders Wes Brown and Phil Bardsley have shared their predictions for today's Premier League bout with Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium, and you can make yours too.

Brown and Bardsley have submitted their picks for our 17:30 BST clash with the Cherries and both believe that Ten Hag's side are going to find success on the south coast.

United managed a narrow 1-0 away victory in this fixture almost 12 months ago, but Wes sees this instalment being a much more comfortable affair. Meanwhile, Phil anticipates a similar scoreline to last year.

You can submit your forecasts via our United Predictions game, available exclusively in the United App. You need to enter your line-up by 16:00 BST, 30 minutes before the actual team is announced, but you can take all the time you need until kick-off to decide on your first scorer, final result and Man of the Match.
