Manchester United handed injury boost as AFC Bournemouth could be without key man for Saturday showdown

Manchester United Football Club returned to winning ways last time out, now, Jose Mourinho’s men will be looking to build upon that.

Next up, a trip to the Vitality Stadium to take on an in-form AFC Bournemouth side, who are playing some excellent football under Eddie Howe.

Before the eagerly anticipated encounter, Mourinho’s task has potentially been made somewhat easier, with the news that Cherries club captain, Simon Francis, could miss the game with an injury he picked up in Carabao Cup action on Tuesday night. That’s what is being reported by the Manchester Evening News.

Many will be reading this and thinking ‘is that really what it has come to at United?’ Unfortunately, the answer is yes. We need all the minor boosts we can get at the moment as the performances just aren’t good enough.

Are you really confident heading into this match against Bournemouth? Because I’m certainly not. It’s not an easy ground to go to, they’re playing brilliantly in the final third, they’ll certainly give us a tough game, particularly when you consider how many goals we’ve been shipping this season…
