Welcome to Ghanaweb.com’s live commentary of the Premier League clash between Bournemouth and Manchester United at the Vitality Stadium.

United have had their issues this season in the Premier League, although shoots of recovery are starting to appear. Jose Mourinho’s side are unbeaten in their last three matches in the top flight, seeing off Everton in their last game on Monday night.

The club are still off the pace of the Champions League places, but a win today would take them in striking distance of their rivals.

Bournemouth enter today’s fixture ahead of United in the Premier League table, sitting in sixth – two places abouve the Red Devils. Eddie Howe’s men have enjoyed an impressive start to the campaign and are in good form.

The Cherries are unbeaten in their last six matches in all competitions, including their last outing in the EFL Cup which saw them defeat Norwich City to advance to the quarter-finals of the competition.

United make one change to their side from their win over Everton on Monday. Rashford drops out of the team as Sanchez earns a recall, leaving Martial to spearhead the attack alongside the Chilean and Mata. Romelu Lukaku is absent after picking up a knock in training.

Bournemouth rung the changes for their clash against Norwich in the EFL Cup, but are back to a more familiar line-up this afternoon. There is one change to their side from their win over Fulham last week as Stanislas gets the nod to start over Daniels. Fraser drops back into a wing-back role with Stanislas supporting Wilson in the final third.
