How should Manchester United line up against Bournemouth in the Premier League

Manchester United visit Bournemouth in the Premier League, who should they pick and in what formation?

Manchester United visit Bournemouth despondent and in disarray, with dissent and injury meaning that the side that Louis van Gaal chooses could be absolutely awful.

After the match, Van Gaal criticised Bastian Schweinsteiger for his poor performance, and also after the match, Juan Mata let his dissatisfaction be known after the currently awful Nick Powell replaced him as United chased the game.

It also appears that Van Gaal has a problem with Ashley Young, who hasn't featured in the last two matches after putting a foot wrong against Leicester City.

With Van Gaal's propensity to indulge in grudges and poor management, we've predicted a side that, when compounded by injuries to Chris Smalling, Matteo Darmian, Wayne Rooney, Morgan Schneiderlin, Phil Jones, Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo, Antonio Valencia and Luke Shaw, could be truly appalling. It is conceivable that United will not win another game in 2015 or with Van Gaal as coach.

TBB prediction

Subs: Romero, Young, Tuanzebe, Schweinsteiger, Pereira, Mata, Rashford.
