Man United will look to strengthen their grip on a top-four spot in the Premier League when they welcome Bournemouth to Old Trafford for their opening fixture of 2023. Man United ended 2022 on a high thanks to 1-0 win over Wolves through Marcus Rashford. The victory saw United break into the top four places and with Tottenham losing last night, means United will head into their first 2023 in fourth, two points above Spurs. The Red Devils will look to keep their new spot with another positive result on Tuesday having not lost to Bournemouth in their last five matches at Old Trafford, they should fancy their chances. Bournemouth ended the year with a home 2-0 loss to Crystal Palace. They have now suffered back-to-back defeats after the World Cup in the top flight and are currently hovering above the relegation zone, with three places and two points separating them and the drop zone. They will want to avoid another setback in this clash, but they face tough task on Tuesday and will need to be on top of their game.
