TEAM NEWS

Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian is expected to miss out again with an ankle injury.

Adnan Januzaj is out with a hamstring injury, Marouane Fellaini is banned, while Bastian Schweinsteiger and Luke Shaw remain out through injury.

Bournemouth have no new injury problems but manager Eddie Howe says he might rotate his squad on Sunday.

Defender Sylvain Distin and Adam Smith both remain out with back and hernia problems respectively.

MOTD COMMENTATOR’S NOTES

Guy Mowbray: “Like the whole country, Manchester United don’t know whether they’ll be in or out of Europe after the summer.

“All the options are possible, with their best-case Champions League (play-off round) scenario dependent on the double of a home win AND Swansea beating Manchester City.

“Bournemouth finally come to Old Trafford for a league game looking for a double of their own, having beaten United on the south coast in December.

“That’s undoubtedly one of the highlights of their first ever top division season, with the fact that they’ll be back again next year an achievement that has perhaps not had the recognition it deserves.

“Maybe one day Eddie Howe will be back at a big ground like this on a more fixed basis?”
