Michael Owen states prediction for Man United v Bournemouth

Michael Owen delivers verdict on Manchester United's clash against Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon

Michael Owen is backing Marcus Rashford to fire Manchester United to victory over Bournemouth in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils suffered a blow in their attempts to hoist themselves above Manchester City and into fourth place after Tuesday night’s 3-2 defeat by West Ham United in the last-ever game at Upton Park.

Louis van Gaal’s side are in fifth place in the Premier League table and two points behind the Citizens ahead of City’s trip to in-form Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on the last day of the season.

United must beat the Cherries at Old Trafford and hope Swansea do them a favour if the Red Devils are to secure their place in next season’s Champions League competition.

Former Liverpool and United striker Owen reckons Rashford will get on the score sheet in what could be the final win of Van Gaal’s Red Devils reign.

“United must win and hope Swansea take all three points at the Liberty Stadium if they are to make the top four. United look good to keep the points and go into the FA Cup Final on the back of a home win; Marcus Rashford can look forward to Wembley on the back of a goal against the Cherries,” Owen told BetVictor.
