Predicted Starting XI: AFC Bournemouth vs Manchester United

Manchester United will kick off their Premier League campaign tomorrow, and what an exciting season we have in store. Jose Mourinho is at the helm, and our new boss has made some huge signings that wouldn’t have seemed possible just a few months ago.

The overall look of the squad is much stronger already, and although Paul Pogba is suspended for this one, you’d hope that Manchester United will have enough to secure all three points.

David de Gea will get the nod in goal, with the regular pre-season back four in front of him; Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly, Daley Blind and Luke Shaw.

The midfield will be a familiar-looking one for this week due to a Paul Pogba suspension. Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini will likely get the nod ahead of Morgan Schneiderlin.

Up top is where we’re most exciting. Jesse Lingard had a superb game in the Community Shield so he’ll keep hold of his place. Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial are also looking extremely likely to start. The main man Zlatan Ibrahimovic will lead the line.

Check out the starting XI here:

De Gea; Valencia, Bailly, Blind, Shaw; Carrick, Fellaini; Lingard, Rooney, Martial; Ibrahimovic.
