With the Premier League debut quickly approaching, football fans want to watch all the games they can – champions Leicester, Conte’s Chelsea, Guardiola’s Man City and, of course, Mourinho’s Man United, after their Community Shield victory. The Red Devils start their title chase away from home at Bournemouth, a team which shocked them last year and showed overall solid football.
Premier League Betting Previews, Odds And Tips – Bournemouth vs Man Utd
The small team made just a few transfers over the summer. They led star player Matt Ritchie go, and brought in Jordon Ibe from Liverpool to replace him.
They’ve also brought in Brad Smith, Lewis Cook and Lys Mousset, all 20-year-old, clearly signaling that they will rely on youth and enthusiasm in the following season.
They are not hot favorites for relegation but are in a basket of teams which will find it tough surviving – like Burnley, Crystal Palace of West Brom. A positive start could help them a lot, at least moral-wise.
On the other hand, Mourinho was brought to Old Trafford to return the club to Ferguson-era winnings. He brought in some great players, like Ibrahimovic, Pogba, Bailly, and Mkhitaryan – all players who are at least competing for the 1st eleven if not clear choices.
They showed good football in pre-season and even in the Community Shield against Leicester, and Mou’s side will surely want to start the new season with a win. Ibrahimovic is a hot favorite to win top scorer this time around, ahead of Aguero and Harry Kane.
From a betting perspective, we back Mourinho’s squad to do rather well in this game. United to win, score or at least not lose are all smart bets, and Ibra seems in top form.
He is the favorite to score, both in the bookies’ perspective as well as our opinion. Bournemouth will put up a good fight, but we back the Red Devils to start the season with a win.
Man Utd Win: 1.85 or 17/20
Man Utd Win & Over 2.5: 3.10 or 21/10
