Manchester United vs Bournemouth team news
Rashford is expected to return to the starting XI for the Red Devils following his minor disciplinary breach.
Lisandro Martinez may be available following his extended post-World Cup break but Erik ten Hag kept Luke Shaw in central defence for the win at Wolves, despite Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire being fit. Diogo Dalot is still injured.

Philip Billing looks set to miss out after coming off early against Crystal Palace.
Manchester United vs Bournemouth prediction
Rashford is too hot to handle right now and a renewed sense of confidence around Old Trafford should help United avoid a slip-up.

Manchester United will be bidding to begin 2023 in the best possible manner, as we prepare to take on Bournemouth in the Premier League on Tuesday (20:00 GMT).
Erik ten Hag’s side have been in fine form as of late, recording victories over Burnley, Nottingham Forest and Wolves following the completion of the mid-season break.
Bournemouth will make only their ninth ever visit to Old Trafford on Tuesday evening, hoping to improve on a steady start to life back in the top flight, following promotion from the Championship earlier this year.
Hoping to make it nine games undefeated at the Theatre of Dreams, United will be buoyed by our most recent victory on home turf, as we saw off Nottingham Forest 3-0 just last week.
As we prepare to open the curtain on domestic action in 2023, here’s all the information you need ahead of our clash with the Cherries…
HOW TO WATCH AND FOLLOW THE GAME
The game kicks off at 20:00 GMT at Old Trafford, but will not be shown live in the UK. However, you will be able to follow the action as it unfolds in the United App and on ManUtd.com.
Our pre-match show on MUTV is set to get under way at 18:55 GMT, with team news released five minutes later. Live radio commentary of the game will also be available throughout the 90 minutes.
Short match highlights of the action will be available for your viewing pleasure two hours after the final whistle has sounded, with extended versions available from Wednesday morning.
Despite being back in training last week after the World Cup, Argentina defender Lisandro Martinez was not involved in our previous fixture against Wolves. The centre-back could return against Bournemouth, and Ten Hag may give an update on him in prior to the clash.
The same could be said for Portuguese right-back Diogo Dalot, who was also back in training last week, and may feature against the Cherries. Scott McTominay, Jadon Sancho and Axel Tuanzebe have also missed recent matches. Goalkeeper Martin Dubravka was recently recalled from his season-long loan by Newcastle and is therefore no longer available for Ten Hag to select.
As for the visitors, David Brooks, Ryan Fredericks, Neto, Junior Stanislas and Marcus Tavernier all missed the recent loss to Crystal Palace, while Philip Billing was forced off in the first half of that clash with a hip problem.
It is currently unknown which of the aforementioned players, if any, will be available for the trip to Old Trafford.
United come into this one on a good run, having returned from the World Cup break with back-to-back wins over Burnley (Carabao Cup), Nottingham Forest and Wolves (both Premier League).
The Reds were also in impressive form before the break, putting together a consistent run which culminated in that last-gasp victory away to Fulham back in November.
What’s more, Erik’s men are unbeaten in the last eight matches at home in all competitions, winning seven of those. Old Trafford has been established as a fortress this season and the Reds will hope to continue that trend against the Cherries.
The visitors, on the other hand, have lost their last three fixtures in all competitions, and come into Tuesday’s clash on the back of a 2-0 home loss to Crystal Palace. The south coast club’s away form this term makes for pretty viewing for United too, with the Cherries winning only once on the road in the Premier League this season. That victory away to Nottingham Forest came at the beginning of September.
