Man Utd are a better team than they were in December

The task facing AFCB's men at Old Trafford is immense. While Man Utd were beaten at Dean Court last December they have come on leaps and bounds since then mainly because of the form of Marcus Rashford and the control at the back that they have again with Chris Smalling.

There is not is much anti van Gaal protesting these days as the Red Devils are closing in on a top four place. It is unfortunate that Man Utd still have much to play for. United have also been strong at home having not lost there since Southampton came away with a 0-1 win back in January. Two defeats in their last 10 games underlines their charge up the league.

Man Utd also know how to win. Against Norwich in their last game they may not have dominated or out played Norwich but Wayne Rooney took hold of the match by capitalising on a mistake that Bassong made and Juan Mata did the rest. At Old Trafford they will create many more chance and it will be AFCB's task not to go down a goal early on.

In some way the pressure is off the Cherries but they won't want to be torn apart in their last game. It could be a game where Howe reverts to five in midfield and no one would blame him for that. The side has not kept a clean sheet since the 2-0 win over Southampton back in early March and so a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford would be considered a great result.

I am currently in the USA for a few days so I amy have difficulty in seeing much of the live feed but hopefully AFCB get a positive result.
