Week 16 BPL match preview

Bournemouth VS Manchester United

bourmouth-vs-manu

Disappointed by their performance in the champions league Manchester United return to English Premier League (EPL) action away to Bournemouth on Saturday.

United lost 3-2 to German side Wolfsburg in Tuesday’s Champions’ league and with it got relegated to the Europa league.

The Red Devils are fourth on the table and must win this one to keep pressure on the leaders and make up for their poor performance in Europe.

Despite their elimination from the champions league, United have had a perfectly good record.

United have not lost a league match in over two months and remain within reach of going to the top.

But Coach Louis Van Gaal will be concerned about his team’s poor scoring form with his top striker Wayne Rooney still doubtful due to injury and was even side lined on Tuesday.

Chris Smalling and Matteo Darmian have also joined the injury list. Bournemouth go into this match inspired by last weekend’s upset of struggling Chelsea.

The Cherries are only above the relegation zone on goal difference and need to beat Manchester United to enhance their survival chances.

The Cherries have only one home win this season and this does not inspire a lot of confidence.

Leicester VS Chelsea

Surprise leaders Leicester City host Chelsea on Sunday with the blues inspired to have made it to the knock-out stages of the Champion’s league.

Leicester however have a better league record to back them up. The league leaders have won their seven home matches and lost only once. Apart from making to the knock-out stages of the champions league, Chelsea have won only one of their eight away league matches though they have beaten Leicester in the last six meetings.
