Man United defeated Wolves 1-0 at Molineux on Saturday to extend their winning streak to three in a row in the Premier League and five overall. Marcus Rashford came off the bench, scored the game’s only goal against Julen Lopetegui’s team.

Since the Manchester derby at the beginning of October, the Red Devils have lost just once and have won four of their last five league games. This impressive run of play has propelled them into fourth place in the standings, just two points behind third-place Newcastle United, who have played one more game.

Man United now only trails second-placed Manchester City by four points after playing the same number of games (16).

There is no escaping the fact that the club had a rough start to the season, losing their opening two league matches to Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion.

However, since then, they have won 10, drawn two, and lost two of their subsequent 14 games, showing significant improvement under Erik ten Hag’s leadership.

Man United is getting ready for a stretch of four consecutive home games against Everton in the FA Cup, Charlton Athletic in the EFL Cup, Man City in the league, and Bournemouth.

The 22nd of January will see Ten Hag’s team travel to Arsenal, and the two legs of their Europa League knockout round playoff with Barcelona will take place in February.

On the other hand, Palace defeated Bournemouth 2-0 at home on New Year’s Eve, with goals from Jordan Ayew and Eberechi Eze for the guests, Bournemouth will be coming off of that loss heading into this match.

The Cherries have 16 points from their first 17 games, placing them 15th in the Premier League standings. Their record includes four victories, four draws, and nine losses.

With 36 goals allowed, Bournemouth has the worst defensive record in the league this season. This will be a concern going into Tuesday night’s matchup against an improved Man United.

The task of keeping the Cherries in the top division will be extremely difficult for Gary O’Neil, 39, who had been in charge of the team on an interim basis before being given the position permanently at the end of November.

Prior to their relegation at the end of the 2019–20 season, Bournemouth played in the Premier League for five consecutive seasons. However, they finished second in the Championship last season, securing an immediate return.

The Red and Blacks have never defeated the Red Devils on the road in their history, with all three of their previous victories coming in front of their own fans. They were defeated 5-2 when they most recently visited Old Trafford in July 2020.

1×2 Betting Odds

Bournemouth is playing a Man United team that has won 16 points in seven league games at Old Trafford in 2022–23, despite having the third-worst home record in the Premier League this season.

At this point in the season, unexpected results are always possible, but we are finding it very difficult to predict one here!

Man United should be able to keep up their recent strong play with a comfortable victory.

And the betting market agrees!

Playing at home, Erik Ten Hag’s men are the favourites to win this and climb the Premier League ladder with strong odds @ 1.29.

Bournemouth have never defeated Man United at Old Trafford. Their chance of changing that stands @ 13.00.

The chances of stalemate and Bournemouth taking anything out of this, stands @ 6.92.

 Total goals over/under

The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 1.57.

While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 2.57.

Man United are unquestionably the superior side compared to Bournemouth when it comes to quality and poise of players.

Plus, Bournemouth have the worst defensive record in the league and when you couple that with United’s current form… it does not paint a pretty picture for the travelling side.

As the lines suggest, expect a few goals in this one with United dominating and winning at the end of it!
