John Barnes states prediction for Man United v Bournemouth
John Barnes delivers his verdict on Manchester United's clash against Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon
John Barnes is tipping Manchester United to beat Bournemouth in the final Premier League game of the season at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils squandered their chance to hoist themselves above Manchester City and into fourth place on Tuesday night after Louis van Gaal’s discarded a 2-1 lead to lose 3-2 to West Ham in the last-ever game at Upton Park.
The FA Cup finalists are two points behind fourth-placed City as United look to qualify for the Champions League in successive seasons ahead of the concluding day of the Premier League season.
Van Gaal’s side can still finish above City if the Red Devils beat Bournemouth and Swansea do the 13-time Premier League winners a favour against Manuel Pellegrini’s side at the Liberty Stadium.
“Man United need the win to keep their top four hopes alive, and I think they’ll get the result they need, which will boost confidence going into the FA Cup Final. Goalscorers – Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial,” Barnes told Titanbet.
The Red Devils will face Alan Pardew’s Crystal Palace side in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday 21 May.
United have only lost one of their last four Premier League games.
