The fixtures for the coming Premier League season are out, and Jose Mourinho can look forward to a trip to the Vitality Stadium on the opening day as his Manchester United side face Bournemouth in what will be an interesting fixture.
Both sides will be keen to get off to a good start, and both for very different reasons. United and the ‘Special One’ will want to begin the Mourinho era on a high as they look to improve on last seasons 5th placed finish, while the Cherries will be desperate to prove they are not one season wonder and reproduce the result of last season where Eddie Howe’s side toppled Van Gaal’s United in a shock 2-1 defeat in December.
In the most recent fixture between the pair – the final game of the last Premier League season – the Red Devil’s came out on top in what proved to be a comfortable 3-1 victory in Louis Van Gaal’s penultimate game at the helm of the club.
With the transfer window now in full swing, United are set to further strengthen their squad having already signed Eric Bailly from Villarreal, and some of their new stars could star in the opening game next campaign.
United fans at the Tavern have given their wish-list of United signings to make an appearance against Bournemouth on August 13th …..
