Bournemouth captain Simon Francis claims his side do not fear Manchester United in the same way they may have done in the past.

'We will have Juventus away before Manchester City, we will have Valencia away before Liverpool in this part of the season we play away against possibly the three biggest candidates for the title, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City so the calendar was not nice to us. "We improve some of the players that were nearly there but not there - Lingard, Alexis - these kind of players, that were already available but not yet at a good level". The Frenchman has now netted in three consecutive Premier League games in a bid to recapture the form he was in, in his debut season in England.

They are now eighth on the log with 17 points from 10 games, and the former United star, who now plays for DC United believes the players have to do more.

They are unbeaten in their last six home league games (W4, D2), with their last loss the 2-0 defeat by Manchester United in April.

However, Bournemouth will provide a stern test on the south coast this weekend given the Cherries' incredible start to their fourth season in the Premier League. It's very hard to go against them.

On current form, Bournemouth are arguably the slightly stronger side and it's tempting to back them to win at nearly 3/1 in the outright market but taking the insurance of money back in the Draw no Bet market makes sense.




"I don't think we see it as a free hit any more, these kinds of games, because we believe we can beat them".

Manchester United will hit the road following their impressive win over Everton the last time out.

Bournemouth were 2-1 winners against Manchester United in their first-ever Premier League meeting in December 2015 when Louis van Gaal was still in charge of the Red Devils. The goals might not be quite as free-flowing as the stats and markets suggest.

"This is a bit of a level game, isn't it?"

"But you never know how it ends".
