Man United vs Bournemouth lineups, starting 11s, team news for Premier League match: Will Rashford start?

Manchester United face a Premier League test this weekend as Erik ten Hag welcomes Bournemouth to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils secured a morale boosting 2-1 win over Chelsea in midweek, as Ten Hag looks to rally his squad ahead of a busy end of year run-in, but the Dutch coach remains under pressure amid growing rumours of player discontent at the club.

Bournemouth could be a tricky opponent for United, with three wins in their last four Premier League matches, as Andoni Iraola begins to yield results from a difficult start to Premier League life.

The Sporting News details the latest on team news and predicted lineups for this game.

Man United vs Bournemouth lineups

As the Premier League schedule continues to tighten up, both Ten Hag and Iraola will need to balance their squads, to prevent further injury issues in 2023.

Ten Hag has the prospect of a must-win Champions League clash at home to Bayern Munich three days after this game, but his options to rotate are restricted.

England star Marcus Rashford is expected to return, after coming off the bench against Chelsea, and Bournemouth could be unchanged.

Here’s the projected starting lineups for this Premier League clash at Old Trafford on December 9.

Man United starting 11

Man United projected lineup (4-2-3-1): Onana (GK) — Dalot, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw — Amrabat, McTominay — Garnacho, Fernandes, Rashford — Højlund.

  • Injured: Malacia, Martinez, Casemiro, Diallo, Eriksen, Varane.
  • Suspended: Sancho

Rashford’s return could see Antony dropping down to the bench, but absentees elsewhere in the squad mean Ten Hag will need his players to recover quickly, ahead of that all-important Bayern showdown.

Bournemouth starting 11

Bournemouth projected lineup (4-2-3-1): Neto (GK) — Smith, Zabarnyi, Senesi, Kerkez — Christie, Cook — Semenyo, Kluivert, Sinisterra — Solanke.

  • Injured: Adams, Aarons, Scott, Kelly, Fredrick, Hansen, Randolph.
  • Suspended: None

Midweek victory over Crystal Palace has kept up Bournemouth’s strong recent form, with three Premier League wins from four, and Iraola will look to stick with his trusted starting XI.
