4-3-3: Predicted Man United XI vs Bournemouth – Sanchez at striker

Manchester United Football Club returned to winning ways last time out, with Jose Mourinho’s men beating Everton 2-1 in what was a rather routine victory.

The games are coming thick and fast now though, and next up is a trip to an in-form AFC Bournemouth side. The Cherries are absolutely flying under Eddie Howe, no doubt they’ll give us a tough task on their own turf as they usually do.

Before the big kick-off, let’s take a look at the predicted United line-up for the encounter, and it sees the return of a couple of key attackers…

Predicted Man United XI vs Bournemouth:


In goal, David de Gea will get the nod as per usual. In front of him, he’ll have what is now the customary back four. Luke Shaw has been flying at left-back, while Ashley Young has taken full advantage of Antonio Valencia’s injury on the right-hand side. Victor Lindelof has massively improved recently, he’ll start. Chris Smalling makes up the back four.

Nemanja Matic will always be selected when fit. He’s become the base of the midfield ever since his arrival, although if I’m being picky I’d like to see some better performances from him. Paul Pogba will play alongside the Serb, with Juan Mata starting in his favoured #10 role.

Romelu Lukaku should remain on the bench. With Alexis Sanchez back in training, it’s time to give the man from Chile his chance through the middle. Anthony Martial will start on the left, with Jesse Lingard coming into the team on the right.
