11:20: Hello and welcome to our LIVEcoverage of the Premier League as Manchester United visit Bournemouth.
I trust you all woke up early to watch England get annihilated in the Rugby World Cup final? Wish I hadn’t. And that’s the last I’ll mention of the egg-chasers.
So, whisper it quietly but Manchester United appear to have turned a corner after an erratic campaign so far this season.
The upward curve began when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side took a point from their clash with league leaders Liverpool and has continued by winning their next three matches.
Can Bournemouth, who are suffering the opposite fate having not claimed a victory in four games, reverse their fortunes?
We’ll find out shortly. Standby for the line ups and team news…
