Bournemouth winger Harry Wilson warns taunting Man Utd fans

Bournemouth winger Harry Wilson fancies upsetting Manchester United today.

Wilson, who is on loan at Eddie Howe's side from United's arch-rivals Liverpool , is expecting a hostile reception from the travelling supporters, but claimed he is ready to use it as a motivator.

"It's part and parcel of football," Wales international Wilson told the Bournemouth Daily Echo.

“I'm definitely expecting a bit of stick, like I was when we played Everton at the beginning of the season.

“That comes with it – being on loan from Liverpool and United being their big rivals – it's going to come my way.

“Whether it's on social media or in the games, you are going to get that. You just can't let it affect you on the pitch, hopefully I can do my job and maybe get a goal."

Wilson, who has scored three times for The Cherries this season, added: "When you are getting stick it is always good.

“If I score, I'll get my own back. Or if we win, that will feel good for me. It definitely drives you forward."
