Bournemouth can put themselves in dream land beating United

The prospect of chasing the top four at this stage of the season is already pretty crazy for Bournemouth supporters, but a win against Man United on Saturday and newspapers and bookies are going to have to shorten AFCB's price on being in Europe next season. The unbeaten home record is on the line and AFCB's players have to be determined to hold on to it against a Manchester United side that have not been consistent on the road.
We can't applaud the Cherries enough at the moment.
We have seen an improvement in Mourinho's team. Anthony Martial is certainly a player who is starting to find has goalscoring touch even if Lukaku hasn't. Steve Cook and Nathan AkΓ© might be pleased to have Rashford rather than Lukaku, but an angry Lukaku having been dropped might be what Mourinho wants to unleash on the Cherries.

All the world's media though will be looking at the performance of Paul Pogba. What will they say if Lerma has him in his pocket? This could be Lerma's big moment to announce his claim to be one of the best central midfield players in the Premier League, and we know he wanted to play in this league to test himself against the best.

The part of the game that may well decide the outcome though is how Man Utd cope with Fraser, Brooks and Wilson. Eddie Howe says King is unable to play which is a big blow. Smalling and LinderlΓΆf played at centre-back against Everton and may get the gig again having only conceded from a penalty. But keeping Luke Shaw and Ashley Young pegged back will be a major challenge for AFCB that they must win to cause United problems.
