Manchester United host strugglers AFC Bournemouth at Old Trafford in their 26th game of the ongoing Premier League season on Saturday.

The Red Devils are heading into the game on the back of winning the EFL Cup title following their 3-2 victory over Southampton on Sunday. Also, tomorrow's match will be the first league game for Jose Mourinho's men in about three weeks as they last played a Premier League tie on 11 February - a 2-0 win over Watford at home.

United have the edge over Eddie Howe's men in Saturday's clash, given the two team's recent form. While the hosts have been unbeaten in their last 16 league games, the Cherries have not won any of their last eight outings in all competitions.

Notably, Mourinho's men last lost a Premier League match against Chelsea in October and were looking good to climb the ladder despite having Europa League commitments. However, three draws early in the year have hampered their rise but the sixth-ranked team have a good chance to leapfrog Arsenal and Liverpool, who will be meeting later in the day, and break into the top-four if they manage a win tomorrow.

All eyes will be on Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has lit up the season with 26 goals in all competitions, including the late winner in their EFL Cup win last Sunday. While there are doubts remaining over Henrikh Mkhitaryan's availability, Michael Carrick is fully fit along with Wayne Rooney.

With Antonio Valencia reportedly hinting that the title dream is not yet over, a win at home on Saturday right after the cup glory might be the impetus that is needed for Mourinho and his men to get their league campaign back on track.
