Bournemouth vs Manchester United: Confirmed Teams

by Sam Peoples

Man United XI vs Bournemouth: De Gea, Shaw, Blind, Bailly, Valencia, Fellaini, Herrera, Mata, Rooney, Martial, Ibrahimovic

Subs: Romero, Rojo, Carrick, Schneiderlin, Memphis, Mkhitaryan, Rashford

Jesse Lingard misses out on Manchester United’s Premier League opener against Bournemouth through injury which means Juan Mata is brought into the starting XI. Mata starting Mourinho’s first game in charge, I doubt many people saw that coming.

Questions are going to start being asked about Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s absence from the starting XI as well as why Marouane Fellaini is in the team ahead of Morgan Schneiderlin, but at least Ander Herrera is there.

Kick-off is at 1.30pm.
