Manchester United picked up a hard-fought win in the Carabao Cup this week as they beat Chelsea 2-1 and next up they move back into the Premier League when they take on AFC Bournemouth.

The Red Devils have had a really whirlwind season so far in the Premier League having won just one out of their past five matches but Solskjaer would be hoping for an easy three points vs the Cherries.

Bournemouth are currently level on points with Man United with both the sides collecting 13 points from their first 10 matches but Eddie Howe’s side are currently 9th on the league table while Man United are 7th.

These dynamics could make a person feel that the Cherries would provide a stern test to Man United this weekend but the home side have not managed to pick up a win in their past four league games which is why Ole’s men should not be too worried going into this match.
