Louis van Gaal needs a win here to avoid United’s lowest points tally in a Premier League season (a draw would match David Moyes’ side).
However, they’ll have to go some to avoid their lowest goals total. That was 58 in 2004/05 – the only time they’ve finished with fewer than 60 goals – as this time around they’ve hit the net just 46 times.
So with 10 of their last 14 home games having fewer than three goals Under 2.5 looks interesting at 2.2.

The Cherries have definitely been an ‘overs’ side this term as their matches have averaged almost three goals per game.
However, five of their nine trips to the top-half have settled as Under 2.5 and with an atmosphere that could be quite flat after United’s midweek failure that’s our best bet.
