Why you should back Bournemouth 

Dominic Solanke is tied for fourth in the English Premier League with 16 goals and has gone more than two matches without converting just once this season. The 26-year-old striker opened the scoring in Bournemouth’s triumph at Manchester United in December, beginning a three-game streak during which he netted five tallies. Solanke, who recorded only six goals last season, has scored in two of the Cherries’ last three contests at home.

Two players hoping to contribute offensively on Saturday are midfielder Philip Billing and Argentinian defender Marcos Senesi. Both converted in the first meeting of the season with the Red Devils, but Billing hasn’t scored in 11 games since and Senesi has tallied in one of his 10 matches following the victory. Striker Antoine Semenyo also is looking to get untracked as he’s gone three contests without a goal after converting four times over a five-game span. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Manchester United

The Red Devils own a minus-1 goal differential this season but have converted in 13 consecutive league matches. They were held without a tally in seven of their first 18 games this campaign. Four players share the team lead with seven goals, although two of them — forward Marcus Rashford and midfielder Scott McTominay — are questionable for Saturday’s showdown due to undisclosed injuries.

However, Spanish winger Alejandro Garnacho and Danish forward Rasmus Hojlund, who also have netted seven tallies apiece, will be on the pitch. Garnacho recorded a brace in Man United’s 4-3 loss at Chelsea on Apr. 4, while Hojlund is hoping to end a three-game drought that has followed a six-game streak during which he scored all of his seven goals. Captain Bruno Fernandes leads the Cherries with six assists and has converted in three of his last four contests to raise his season total to six tallies. See which team to pick here.
