Manchester United predicted line up vs Bournemouth revealed

Antonio Valencia, Marouane Fellaini and Diogo Dalot remain absent as Manchester United travel to Bournemouth this weekend.

United captain Valencia has been absent for a month, with manager Jose Mourinho confirming a knee injury will keep him out of Saturday’s trip to the south coast.

Fellaini and Dalot remain out with injuries sustained during the international break, but Jesse Lingard and Alexis Sanchez are back to full fitness. United boss Mourinho did not provide an update on Phil Jones, who last featured for the club on September 25.

Bournemouth captain Simon Francis is a doubt. The defender is nursing a slight groin problem following the Carabao Cup win over Norwich in midweek.

A scan on the injury has shown no serious damage and Cherries boss Eddie Howe will make a late decision on Francis’ fitness.

Joshua King will remain absent. The Norwegian forward has missed the last two games with an ankle injury and will not be ready to return against his former club.

Mourinho is hoping the full week of training will reinvigorate his players after a hectic schedule.

He said: "We’ve worked tactically, we’ve improved some fitness levels. We improved some of the players who were almost there but not there – Jesse Lingard, Alexis Sanchez – these players who were already available but not yet at a good level.

"We trained with our kids too, mixed with us on one of the days, which was an amazing feeling for them. A good week."

Predicted Bournemouth XI: Begovic, Francis, S Cook, Ake, A Smith, Lerma, L Cook, Daniels, Brooks, Wilson, Fraser.

Predicted Man Utd XI: De Gea, Young, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw, Matic, Pogba, Mata, Fred, Lukaku, Martial.
