Our match prediction:
Manchester United will be looking to build on a 2-1 win over Leicester City in the Community Shield when they square off against Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium at the start of the 2016/2017 Premier League campaign. Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the winner against Claudio Ranieri’s troops and he helped Jose Mourinho win his first trophy with the Red Devils. The “Special One” did well to reinforce the squad in the summer transfer window and despite the fact that the Cherries are tough to beat at home, we predict that the English giants are going to pick up all three points from Sunday’s football match. In their last meeting at Vitality Stadium Bournemouth recorded a 2-1 win over Manchester United, but the Red Devils were totally out of form back then. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Man Utd, who are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Bournemouth.
Highligted Player (Ibe):
Jordan Ibe is regarded as one of the most talented players in England. Ibe was born on 8 December, 1995 and he began his senior career at Wycombe Wanderers. After being on Liverpool’s radar during the 2011/2012 season, the Premier League club made their move and eventually secured his signature on 20 December 2011 for an undisclosed fee. Jordan Ibe plays as a winger and he is well known for impressive pace, power and control. He made 27 appearances for Liverpool in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign and he scored one goal in the process. On 14 July, 2016 he signed a four-year contract with Bournemouth for a fee of £15m (club record). Ibe received his first call-up for England U21 in August 2015, but is has to be noted that he is also eligible to play for Nigeria through his father. However, Ibe confirmed in 2015 that he would represent the England national team on international stage.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles. A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium. The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
