Manchester United will kick off their first Premier League game under Jose Mourinho with a long trip down to the South Coast to face Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth with a point to prove after they missed out on the top four last season.

Having replaced Louis Van Gaal with the former Chelsea boss and 3 times Premier League winner, the Red Devils are 5/6 with to get off to a winning start to the new campaign.

As for the Cherries, they will be hoping that second season syndrome doesn’t strike and Eddie Howe’s side are odds of 4/1 with  to win the clash.

The off-season has been really productive for Eddie Howe’s side and has seen the arrival of young players, such as Nathan Ake from Chelsea, Lewis Cook from Leeds United and from Liverpool, Jordan Ibe and Brad Smith.

The main departures saw club captain Tommy Elphick move down a league to join Aston Villa and Matt Ritchie follow suit to join the Rafaloution up at Newcastle United.

They also lost striker Callum Wilson for the majority of last season through and will be hoping him and Benik Afobe, who had such a good start to his Bournemouth career, can continue the form they both showed in periods during last season.
