Bournemouth Team News
- Out: Ryan Fredericks, Junior Stanislas, Hamed Traorè, Antoine Semenyo, Marcus Tavernier
- Doubt: N/A
Gary O’Neil’s course correction on the south coast at Vitality Stadium has done wonders for Bournemouth in the 2022-23 Premier League season, with the Cherries coming into the weekend free and clear of any relegation concerns when they welcome Champions League-chasing Manchester United to town.
Three wins from their last six constitute decent form for Bournemouth despite losing their last two against Crystal Palace and Chelsea respectively, with Bournemouth’s defensive record likely to come into play against Erik ten Hag’s men who are back on track after their own recent two-match skid.
Unfortunately for O’Neil, the Cherries boss remains without five figures in the senior team for Saturday, with Ryan Fredericks, Junior Stanislas, Hamed Traorè, Antoine Semenyo, and Marcus Tavernier all unfit for service. There could be two changes to the XI, however, with Marcos Senesi and Adam Smith potentially coming back into the fold after being dropped in the loss against Palace.
