Jose Mourinho will have his first test as Manchester United manager when the Red Devils play Bournemouth away from home in the season opener.

After spending more than 150m pounds, the pressure will be on Jose Mourinho to start winning the games from Day 1. However, the Red Devils will not have the services of Paul Pogba as the Frenchman is banned due to suspension.

Manchester United will not also have the services of Chris Smalling who is also banned. Meanwhile, Bournemouth who finished 16th last season will look to stay in Premier League in the coming season and might not provide much threat to the class of Manchester United on the opening day.

Junior Stanislas will miss the season opener against Manchester United due to an injury. Here we look at predicted line-ups of both the teams for the season opener.

Manchester United (4-2-3-1): de Gea, Valencia, Bailly, Blind, Shaw, Carrick, Herrera, Rooney, Lingard, Martial, Ibrahimovic

Manchester United XI Bournemouth (4-2-4): Federici, Ake, Francis, Cook, Daniels, Surman, Arter, King, Ibe, Pugh, Wilson

Bournemouth XI

Prediction: Bournemouth 1-3 Manchester United
