NAME: Bournemouth – Manchester United
DATE: 20 May 2023
TIME: 14:00 UTC
VENUE: Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth, England
Erik ten Hag says he will have to wait and see what happens in Friday’s training session before deciding whether Marcus Rashford will be able to face Bournemouth on Saturday.
Rashford was forced to sit out of last weekend’s 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers through injury, with that result helping United maintain our place in the Premier League’s top four.
Marcus has been fit enough to work with the rest of the group at Old Trafford since, but reported ill on Friday and the boss did not yet want to commit to a final call on his match fitness, ahead of the Reds’ final away game of the season, on the south coast.
A win would take us to within three points of securing Champions League football for next season, even if Liverpool continue their winning streak, against Aston Villa. Both games kick off at 15:00 BST.“Rashy, he trained the whole week but today he reported he doesn’t feel well so he’s ill,” Erik told journalists. “We have to see how he recovers during the day and then see tomorrow.”
Manchester United have just one more day left to prepare before they return to action against Bournemouth on Saturday.Erik ten Hag’s side need to claim another three points to ensure they keep hold of their spot in the top four and have been given a few injury boosts ahead of kick-off.
Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay are both in contention to start after they returned to training on Wednesday. Rashford missed the win over Wolves with a minor knock while McTominay has been sidelined since early April.Raphael Varane was also in training after being taken off as a precaution late on last week.
There was more good news on Thursday as Donny van de Beek returned to the grass after being ruled out for the season in January. The Dutchman suffered a knee injury that required surgery but is making good progress in his recovery.
Man Utd travel to Bournemouth this weekend as they continue their quest for UEFA Champions League qualification.
With safety secured, the Cherries might not have the same desire that they’ve shown when scrapping for survival. They also have specific weaknesses that can be exploited.If Erik ten Hag picks Luke Shaw (£5.2m) at left-back, that weakness is something he could potentially take advantage of. The England defender ranks seventh in his position for successful crosses in 2022/23.
Man Utd should keep their opponents pinned in. After all, Bournemouth average just 39.8% possession, the second-lowest figure in the Premier League, so quality deliveries into the box could be key.
It’s also worth noting the Cherries are notoriously poor defending set-pieces. They were caught short by West Ham United recently, while Chelsea were also able to capitalise on this weakness in Gameweek 35, when Hakim Ziyech (£5.5m) delivered the ball from a free-kick to the far post, where Benoit Badiashile (£5.0m) beat Neto (£4.5m) to score his first goal for the club.
Then, at Selhurst Park last time out, Crystal Palace took their first two corners short, but after that, put them in the ‘mixer’, where the usual chaos resumed. The weakness is backed up by the numbers, too: Bournemouth rank among the Premier League’s bottom three sides for goal attempts from set plays conceded and xG set play conceded this season.
At the start of the season, Manchester United would have taken being in fourth place with three games to go, let alone with the Carabao Cup in the bag and the FA Cup final to come.Their away form has become a bit of a concern but I do think the fact the Bournemouth are safe from the drop will help Erik ten Hag’s side here.
I have been really impressed by the Cherries and I have been wrong about them so many times that I don’t want to just write them off again – but you can probably guess what I am going to say next.I am going with United to win because of what is at stake for them.
Two wins from their last three games will guarantee a top-four finish and they will be desperate to get over the line, with Liverpool in form and on their tail.
Raphael Varane is available, with the Frenchman having played for 81 minutes during the victory over Wolves.Our no.19 was returning from a month-long absence and was replaced late on by Harry Maguire as a precaution.
Scott McTominay is also on the verge of a first appearance since 8 April, when he scored our opener against Everton.“It’s positive on Varane, [he’s] definitely available,” Ten Hag added. “Scottf joining in training, I think if the final training goes well he’ll be in.”
