Confirmed Manchester United XI vs AFC Bournemouth: Sanchez at striker

Well there you have it, Alexis Sanchez will get his opportunity to play through the middle. Manchester United team news to take on AFC Bournemouth has just come through, and there is no Romelu Lukaku in the squad – giving the man from Chile a huge chance.

David de Gea will play in goal, with captain Ashley Young once again filling in at right-back. Luke Shaw will play on the left, while the now customary back two of Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling continue.

Nemanja Matic will play at the base of the midfield three, with Paul Pogba and Fred both starting after decent displays last time out.

Juan Mata starts for the third game in a row, while the deadly Anthony Martial gets the nod. The aforementioned Sanchez leads the line.

In terms of must-win, this is right up there. The Red Devils need to show that they have what it takes to win those tricky away games. If we still harbour hopes of a title challenge, even a top-four finish, winning these sort of fixtures is key.

Hopefully, the lads can go and put on a convincing display and scoop all three points!
