Manchester United needs to get it together. After being eliminated from the Champions League, Man U is looking to recover with a victory over Bournemouth. But is Man U’s season about to go from bad to worse? HollywoodLife.com has the live stream of their Premier league match!
It’s not the best time to be a Manchester United supporter. The Red Devils are no longer competing for the UEFA Champions League. But before they can lick their wounds, they have to face Bournemouth, the squad that just defeated the Premier league champions! Yikes.
Man U will try to make the best of a bad week when they go up against AFC Bournemouth on Dec. 12, reports ITV. But the Red Devils will find that the Bournemouth Cherries may leave a poor taste in their mouth. The action kicks off at 12:30 p.m. EST so get ready for some incredible Premier league football.
Manager Louis van Gaal has had a bad week. United lost 3-2 to Wolfsburg on Dec. 8, thus eliminating them from the Champions League. Man U is currently fourth in the Premier League, just three points behind leaders Leicester, but they need some pep if they want to win the Europa League.
“The problem is that we have to meet with the expectation,” Louis told reporters following criticism of his yearlong tenure as the club’s manager, according to the BBC. Former players and fans have been highly critical of Louis. To that, he can only say, “At a club like Manchester United, they are very high.”
Considering they’re the second-highest earning football club in the world and the most successful English club, yeah — there are some high expectations. Can Man U exceed them and get back on their winning ways? Before they can take the Europa league, they need to deal with a team of surprise upstarts.
Yes, Bournemouth is riding high off of one of the biggest upsets in the club’s history. The Cherries shocked the football world by defeating Premier League champions, Chelsea, 1-0. “We don’t want it to be a one off game; we want to try and build on this result and move up the table,” manager Eddie Howe said in an interview after that amazing victory, reports Outside90
In 1984, Bournemouth eliminated Man U from the FA Cup in an upset that still haunts Manchester to this day, reports The Hamilton Spectator. Though Bournemouth is vastly smaller than Man U when it comes to stadium, trophy count and moneymaking, it may not be the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog.
HollywoodLifers — Will this be a case of history repeating, with Bournemouth shutting down Man U? Or do you think Manchester will get back to winning?
