Marcus Rashford has recovered from injury to start for Man United against Bournemouth today.

The winger was doubtful after limping off against Liverpool last week. He missed training for part of the week but trained yesterday.

The man that might have replaced him, Antony, did not travel with the squad.

United are therefore unchanged from the side that drew with Liverpool last weekend.

This means Andre Onana is in goal.

Diogo Dalot, who is making his 100th league appearance for the club, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are the full-backs, with Willy Kambwala and Harry Maguire the centre backs.

Victor Lindelof, Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane, Jonny Evans, Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia are all injured.

Casemiro and Kobbie Mainoo are the holding midfield pair. Scott McTominay is still injured.

Rashford is joined by Bruno Fernandes and Alejandro Garnacho in the attacking midfield positions.

Rasmus Hojlund is up front. Anthony Martial is still injured.

In reserve, Altay Bayindir is the backup keeper. He is joined by Mason Mount, Christian Eriksen, Sofyan Amrabat, Amad, Omari Forson and three youngsters looking to secure their first team debuts, Ethan Wheatley, Harry Amass and Habeeb Ogunneye.

The inclusion of Wheatley, a centre forward, is particularly interesting for United.

Kick off at the Vitality Stadium is at 5.30pm.
