Manchester United will be looking to secure their sixth successive win in all competitions when they take on Bournemouth at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

The Red Devils climbed into the Champions League places for the first time this season with a 1-0 win over Wolves on Saturday afternoon, courtesy of Marcus Rashford's second-half effort. The England international was dropped for the trip to Molineux after he overslept and was late for a team meeting.

However, Rashford came on at half-time and responded in the best possible fashion by scoring the winner for his side in the 76th minute to earn them a place in the top four heading into the New Year. But the Red Devils will be keen to back-up a well-earned victory when they face a struggling Bournemouth side on Sir Matt Busby Way.

When is Man Utd vs Bournemouth?

United's clash against Bournemouth will kick-off at 8pm on Tuesday, January 3 at Old Trafford.

The two teams last met in July 2020 before the Cherries were relegated to the Championship. It was a topsy-turvy clash as the Red Devils ran out 5-2 winners with Rashford and Anthony Martial among the scorers that day.

United have played Bournemouth just 18 times in their history, with the Red Devils winning 12 and the Cherries securing three victories in the process. However, the last time the South Coast side beat United was back in 2019 with Josh King's 45th minute strike the difference between the two sides.

Team news

Rashford is set to be recalled to the United starting XI after serving his punishment for lateness with Alejandro Garnacho expected to drop out of the XI. Lisandro Martinez and Scott McTominay could return to the United squad for the clash with Bournemouth having returned to first-team training, while it could be too early for Diogo Dalot after the right-back recovered from an injury.

Ten Hag said following the trip to Molineux: "We have to see, both [Martinez and McTominay] were training yesterday and today [Saturday], so I am quite optimistic that both can return to the squad. Diogo Dalot as well, he also makes good progress. But we don’t want to take risks with anyone because there are many games to come and we need a good squad to cover all the games."
