Team news: Duo return to starting line-up


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Marcos Senesi and Luis Sinisterra both return to the AFC Bournemouth starting line-up for today’s Premier League encounter with Manchester United.

Defender Senesi missed four games after suffering a hamstring injury during the early stages of the Cherries’ 2-0 victory against Burnley last month.

The Argentina international came off the bench as an 86th-minute replacement for Milos Kerkez during the 2-1 defeat at Luton Town last Saturday.

Senesi was joined on the scoresheet by Dominic Solanke and Philip Billing when Andoni Iraola’s team recorded a memorable 3-0 win over the Red Devils at Old Trafford in December.

Sinisterra has missed the Cherries’ past three games after sustaining a hamstring injury while on international duty with Colombia last month.

His last taste of match action came during the first half of the Cherries’ eventful 4-3 comeback victory over Luton Town at Vitality Stadium last month.

Dango Ouattara is also restored to the starting line-up as head coach Iraola makes three changes following the defeat at Kenilworth Road seven days ago.

Antoine Semenyo (calf) and Marcus Tavernier (hamstring) are both ruled out, while Lloyd Kelly is named on the bench.

Development squad winger Michael Dacosta Gonzalez is among the Cherries substitutes having also been on the bench for the visit to Brentford last season.

Having beaten Luton Town, Everton and Crystal Palace, the Cherries will be looking to win four successive home games in the top flight for the first time.

Manchester United name an unchanged starting line-up following their 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Old Trafford last Sunday.

The Red Devils are without the services of injured defenders Lisandro Martínez, Raphaël Varane, Jonny Evans, Victor Lindelöf and Luke Shaw, while Scott McTominay is also out. 

AFC Bournemouth: Neto, Kerkez, Cook, Solanke, Christie, Ouattara, Smith, Sinisterra, Kluivert, Senesi, Zabarnyi.

Subs: Travers (g/k), Kelly, Faivre, Scott, Hill, Ünal, Billing, Aarons, Dacosta Gonzalez.

Manchester United: Onana, Dalot, Kambwala, Maguire, Wan-Bissaka, Casemiro, Mainoo, Garnacho, Bruno Fernandes, Rashford, Højlund.

Subs: Bayindir (g/k), S Amrabat, Mount, Eriksen, Diallo, Wheatley, Forson, Amass, Ogunneye.
