In Sunday's final fixtures of the season, Manchester United will host Bournemouth at Old Trafford while Manchester City will be guests of Swansea.

This is week 38 match, the last matches of the 2015/16 season. All matches will be played on the same day/time. De Gea, Valencia, Smalling, Rojo, Blind, Carrick, Rooney, Mata, Lingard, Rashford, Martial and Co should win this match with Bournemouth and see how Man City vs Swansea pans out. ManU messed up when they could not hold on to a 1-2 lead and allowed West Ham to outplay them to win 3-2. They would have sat on the 4th position by now. This is why I love the Leicester mentality- defend when you are leading- which ManU and most clubs don’t have. I blame Louis van Gaal. I can understand why 99% of the fans want him out and Mourinho in. Their prayer is that Swansea should beat Man City if they win to see them in the Champions league next season. If not they should be ready for the less glamorous Thursday Thursday Europa. Bournemouth have done well this season remaining in the EPL and with the tv money expected they should re enforce and do better next season. They are only playing to better their position on the table for the records and better their share of the tv money. This is the last game of the season and before their fans. Man Utd should nick this. ManU 3-0 Bournemouth. Djeniko Chris, Sapele.
Manchester United vs Bournemouth is going to be a tough game to watch come this weekend @old Trafford, Manchester United are going to play there best game to ensure they eliminate Bournemouth fc @old Trafford Cox grabbing a win rather the three point, and Manchester City eventually lost to Swansea fc we give way to United to champions League spot, which is there priority now, since losing to West harm last week, with Martia, Ronney , Mata in this game I see a good football and a win for United team. My prediction is Manchester United 3 Bournemouth 1. Adamu from FCT Abuja.
Manchester United's hopes of finishing in the top four now entirely hinge on whether Swansea can beat Manchester City after they lost 3-2 to West Ham on Tuesday Bournemouth have been in freefall in the last few months after securing their Premier League status. They have lost five of their last seven matches and their only win in that time came against Aston Villa. United have won six of their last seven at home in the Premier League and have only conceded three goals in that time. Louis van Gaal's side should see Eddie Howe's team off on Sunday but it may not be enough to finish in the top four. Manchester United 2-0 Bournemouth. Chike Godson, Egbeda, Lagos.
MANCHESTER UNITED VS BOURNEMOUTH match is a must watch. Though Leicester might have been crowned premier league winners but the fight is still on for top 4 finish between some top clubs, manchester united are uefa Champions League ticket chasers,Manchester United will aim to up-stage city rivals, Manchester City, and overtake them for 4th place. Bournemouth should provide little resistance to that ambition, but one thing is sure, dont write bournemouth off just like that, because if leicester can win premier league, then anything can happen in the game of football… i see a very strong united side, playing like champions and also bournemouth will come out strong aswell.. watch out for mata, de gea, martial for united and also watch out for juan, afobe and wilson for bournemouth. its gonna be a tough encounter. i predict man utd 2-1 bournemouthosayande pius, benin city
Man United vs Bernamouth 's game will devoid the expectation that many will want to see. Why do i say so? people will think United will come out strong to want to put up a show however their opponents is a mixed match in this regards as Bernamout has a better chances to even secure a winning in this game. In their last encounter United were helpless in their 2-1 defeats to them, statistically, United only better than them with just 8 wins and a good goal difference. but both teams have equalled the same amount of draws so far. looking at Bernamout position at the table, they have a chance of improving where they finish at the end of the season to atmost No. 13 which will be a good fight owing to the expense of the teams ahead of them. On the other hand, LVG knows that City can never loose to Swansea even though the game will be a cracker but by and large city will scale home with a point which even if United wins they will still loose out on the top 4 as the goal difference does not favor Manchester United. Therefore he nmay cunningly want to rest his players awaiting the all important FA cup final. more to this is the injury of adnan januzaj and co who are sideline now so risking others now will be detremental to the final. In the light of this am going for a draw between Man United vs Bernamout if not for the fact that United will be playing at home would have say they would loose but for the home support couple with West ham shocker, its MANCHESTER UNITED 0-0 BERNAMOUTH . From Otugwor Owhofasa Pleasant Sapele Delta State.
Manchester United playing Bournemouth @old Trafford this Sunday is going to be a real cracker to entertain with, as all other clubs in the epl we be playing as well same time, Bournemouth fc so far as being doing great in the epl, they won Manchester United @ there first meeting @ vitality stadium this season by 2-1, Manchester United need to win this last epl game to enable than hope on champions League spot come next season , if eventually Manchester city lost to Swansea FC in there last epl game as well, but that impossible for city to lost,Manchester city as all it take to win Swansea FC or draw , Bournemouth FC we not setback and watch United fc to win than, it rather Bournemouth won or at lease draw Cox Manchester United have a task ahead in the FA cup against Crystal Palace next week and we surely rest some keys players to avoid injuries worries , my prediction is Manchester United 1 Bournemouth 1. Onaikabar from Federal Polytechnic Auchi Edo State.
Is going to be Manchester United vs Bournemouth at old Trafford Manchester United lost away from home by 3 goals to 2 in the hand of westhham United both fighting for Europa qualification for next season to Frank Manchester United will only be dreaming for Europa because they are out of Champions League already even the Europa is still not sure for Manchester United bcs mere looking at the permutation Manchester United is on 63 points on the league 5th position respectively with the look of thing if Liverpool win Europa definitely the the Europa qualification will be tougher so Manchester United will try there possible best not to play any draw against there opponent in but a must win due to there disappointed match last weekend that put them under pressure I no Manchester United possess some players who are going to perform excellently well in the likes of Anthony Martial who has performed so well for manunited since his arrival from Monaco and also Juan Mata and the rest I know am very sure that the out of the match is going to be interesting at old Trafford.
To the visitor Bournemouth they perform so well when the season started but to my own surprise towards the end of the season they were fighting bot to relegated presently they are on 16 position with 42 points behind every season relegation scape through Sunderland even if they lost against manunited they still remains on the same point they are not pursuing anybody nobody is pursuing them they will still be in premiership come next season.
In conclusion the match is going to 70:30 with Manchester United gaining the upper hand no doubt about that no draw in the match Manchester United is winning the match by 3 goals to 1 the the help of Martial Mata. Manchester United 3: Bournemouth 1
Rotimi, Ondo state
Even if they end up defeating Bournemouth at old Trafford on sunday,man u will still rely on swansea city for a top 4 spot of the premier league. Bournemouth have of course lost just three of their last 12 Premier League away matches with 5 wins 4 draws and 4 loss sounds pretty great but however the cherries have old Trafford 4 times in all competitions without winning not even scoring a goal,making it seem like man u have a way of holding them down but of course this time Bournemouth will want that history changed. In terms of goals this season,the red devils have netted only 46,lowest so far. And on the soil of old Trafford only 8 goals in total for the premier league,lower than any other this season.
I see a 2-1 win for Manchester united. See you at old Trafford!
This will be Manchester United’s last home match of the season and a chance to finish on a high. Their defeat to West Ham in their last match dented their hopes of a top four finish and go above Manchester City.
The Red Devils have to win this now and hope that Manchester City suffer a defeat against Swansea in their final match. Had United managed to held on to their lead against the Hammers and came out on tops, all they would had to have done is beat Bournemouth to secure a top four finish. Now all they can do is hope that Swansea can beat Manchester City and do them a favour.
It is hard to see Manchester United being up for this game as United lost 3-2 at West Ham in midweek. Nevertheless, their form at Old Trafford has been impressive because the Red Devils have claimed 19 points from the last 21 available at home in the Premier League.But it needs to be stressed here that it is the results that have been pretty good, not their performance. Their defence has been good which has conceded fewer home goals than any other side this season, just eight goals this season.The Red Devils have not been going great at all. This will be their lowest tally of goals scored in a single Premier League season, as they go into their final game with just 46 goals scored. That’s 13 goals short of last season’s tally. Wayne Rooney has scored seven league goals this season and he needs three on the final day to avoid finishing a Premier League for the first season with United under ten goals.The other players to watch for will be Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial. United have also won just 18 games this season in the Premier League and if they beat Bournemouth it will only equal their previous lowest tally. Their defence has been good, no doubt as four of their last five wins at Old Trafford have been with a clean sheet. Bournemouth have been to Old Trafford just four times before and they have suffered defeats on each occasion and did not score a single goal. This will be a tough game for them no doubt. The Cherries have only managed one win in their last seven Premier League games this season but they have not been bad on their travels. They have lost just three of their last twelve on their travels in the Premier League, however, two of those have come in their last three away games.
Overall, Bournemouth have suffered four defeats in their last six league games and have scored exactly one goal in each of their last four games played. I think man utd will win this one…man utd 2-0 Bournemouth… Olofu sheidu
Manchester United versus Bournemouth sees the Red Devils in with a narrow chance of sneaking into fourth place and gaining a spot in next season’s UEFA Champions League.
If they had beaten West Ham United on Tuesday evening, a win today would have guaranteed that outcome. As it is, they need Swansea City to beat Manchester City at the Liberty Stadium in order for a win at Old Trafford to see them finish above their city rivals. Lately bournemouth have not been doing very well, they have only won one of their last seven games although they beat united in the first leg by 2-1 and will be hoping they can do a double over united at old traford. For united, they have the 2nd best most impressive home record in the league and considering the magnanimity of today’s game i think united are not going to find it too difficult in edging out bournemouth. But united will still finish 5th because Man city will never lose to swansea. Its a win for the red devils. Manchester united 2 vs 0 Bournemouth. Harrison donald, benin city.
Manchester united hosting Bournemouth at Old Trafford is going to be great. United are left with only one option which is to win today and hope that swansea can do them a favour by beating Manchester city for them to have any chance of picking the last champions league slot. United had everything on their hands when they were 2-1 up with 2 goals from Anthony Martial and just 15mins to go but they could’nt hold their own and ended up losing the game by 3-2 to West Ham. For the cherries, they have little to play for in today’s game their league status is already certain regardless of the the outcome of this match. But they will still try to give a good account of themselves. Manchester United will win this match. United 3 – 0 Bournemouth. Priscilla, Edo state
Manchester united have taken 19points from a possible 21points in there last 7 EPL game at old Trafford. they will be playing there last game against Bournemouth at old Trafford. a win against Bournemouth might see them to a playoff in champions league next season if Swansea beat Manchester city at south wales this evening. Manchester united who has conceded fewer goals than any other premier league club on home soil this season (8) has beaten the cherries all four times they met in all competition this season. Manchester united has enough motivation because a lose today will set a new club record for fewest win in a full premier league season. Eddie Howe’s side have won just one of their last seven Premier League matches (W1 D1 L5).
Manchester united has all it takes to win the match this evening. I give Manchester united a 2-1 win . see u at old Trafford !!
Manchester united welcomes bournemouth to old trafford which happens to be their last league game of the season with one eye on Manchester City’s game against Swansea, which could determine their top four hopes. The Red Devils are two points adrift of City and only a win for Louis van Gaal’s men, followed by a loss for City could lead them to the fourth spot. With luis van gaal’s job on the line, he will be despirate to secure the fourth position for his team in order to save his job. The Red Devils have had an impressive record at Old Trafford in recent weeks, taking 19 points from a possible 21 in their last seven games and have conceded only eight goals at home all season. However, their main problem this season has been scoring goals and have managed only 46, lower than any other team in the top half of the table. Meanwhile, Bournemouth, having started the season well, are currently in the 16th spot. They are in dismal form at the moment, having won only once in their last six games in all competitions but they won against united bv 2:1 in december. I think United will carry the day 2:1 Bournemouth. Chucks.
“It is still possible so, we fight until the end”. These are the words of luis van gaal after they succumbed to West Ham by 3-2 on tuesday night. United welcomes 16th placed bournemouth to Old Trafford with the hope they can still make the top four to qualify for the champions league but they have to rely on Swansea to inflict pain on Manchester City by defeating them in Liberty stadium for that dream to come alive but they too will have to collect the maximum 3 points against the Cherries. Bournemouth having successfully steered clear of relegation this season will only be playing for league position today. Their recent performances have been very poor but will be hoping they can repeat the same performance that saw them overcome united 2-1 in december. But i don’t think that will happen. United are condemned to win this game and i see them doing it in styl. Manchester United 3 : 1 Bournermouth. Jeff, benin.
Manchester united will be hosting Bournemout in sunday’s clash. Manchester United need to beat Bournemouth on Sunday and hope for a favour from Swansea City in order to finish above Manchester City in the final Champions League position in the Premier League this season. After Man City drew with Arsenal last weekend, Man United knew that two wins from their final two matches would see them finish above their rivals and take the final Champions League position. At Boleyn Ground saw Man United lead 2-1 against West Ham United during the week, but the home side turned it around very late on to collect all the points and leave the Red Devils in fifth spot in the table. Man City have been far from convincing in recent weeks, however, and it is not against all possibilities that Manuel Pellegrini’s side could lose at Swansea and open the door for Man United to claim fourth. FT score Manchester united 1 – 0 Bournemouth. Favour from Okada.
Today’s game between Manchester united and bournemouth, i think so much is at stake for luis van gaal and his team. Manchester United must beat Bournemouth and hope for a favour from Swansea to finish in the top four of the Premier League.
After Manchester City’s draw with Arsenal last weekend, United missed the chance to leapfrog their rivals into fourth when they were beaten by West Ham in midweek. To qualify for the Champions League they now need to win against Bournemouth and hope City lose at Swansea. However, United could also finish as low as seventh and miss out on European football completely next season if Liverpool win the Europa League.
That would be a worst-case scenario for manager Louis van Gaal, whose future at the club remains under scrutiny after a below-par season. I think its going to be a big win for united as we keep an eye on city – swansea game. MAN U 4 – 0 BOURNEMOUTH. Isreal.
Manchester United’s hopes of finishing in the top four now entirely hinge on whether Swansea can beat Manchester City after they lost 3-2 to West Ham on Tuesday.
Bournemouth have been in free fall in the last few months after securing their Premier League status. They have lost five of their last seven matches and their only win in that time came against Aston Villa. United have won six of their last seven at home in the Premier League and have only conceded three goals in that time. Louis van Gaal’s side should see Eddie Howe’s team off on Sunday but it may not be enough to finish in the top four. I will predict Manchester United 2 vs 0 Bournemouth. Henry
Manchester united vs bournemouth is going to be a very interesting. Its not going to be easy. Bournemouth is a very good side although they have not been in their best recently. Its going to be a draw game. United 1~ 1 bournemouth. Doubra
What a great game its going to be at old trafford as the red devils play host to bournemouth. It is going to be a very tight game. Its a league that has been full with surprise. I give bournamouth 1 v 0 united. Cyril
Man united vs bournemouth is going to be an interesting match but it is not going to go as expected by the majority that man united will win. I see man united coming to this game to get a draw because they will rest so of their players like marshal, smalling etc so that they can concentrate on the F.A cup final. It is going to be a game where both teams have little or nothing to play for so we should not expect to see too many goals in this match. I see the game ending in a draw. Man united 1 vs Bournemouth 1.
The season opener… With a combined fee of 169million pound in acquiring 4 of the most prolific players in persons of Pogba, Mkhitaryan, Eric Bailly and Ibrahimovic and also winning the community shield by beating the defending league champion, Leicester City, Manchester United under "The Only One" will definitely want to impress and that they will do in style. But Bournemouth might not be push over also having gotten the Nigerian striker Jordan I've for 11million pound and Nathan Ake, Brad Smith, Lys Mousset and Emerson Hynadan for a lesser transfer target of about 20million pounds, then I don't see them beating the star studded Red Devils. Manchester United will win this game by a difference of 2 goals. It might be 2-0 or 3-1 but it is a difference of 2 goals.
