EPL: Bournemouth vs Manchester United

Manchester United recovered from going a goal behind to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to four games and left the south coast with all three points after a late Marcus Rashford strike completed the comeback.

Anthony Martial continued his fine form by bagging another goal while Callum Wilson was the routine name for Bournemouth on the scoresheet.

United struggled to carve out chances for most of the half, but they almost leveled matters in the 34th minute through Fred, whose close-range strike was blocked Nathan Ake.

All this was done without the services of Romelu...

Manchester United have made a habit out of coming back into games in recent weeks and have looked a better side in most second halves of the games.

It was an interesting game of football as Manchester United came from behind to secure a 2-1 draw against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

Forwards Jesse Lingard and Alexis Sanchez were among the substitutes against Everton last weekend, and Mourinho said the pair are in a much better condition to play a role at Bournemouth.

The Reds have kept just one Premier League clean sheet this season - only Fulham have a poorer record in terms of shut-outs.

"He's having incredible opportunities to develop, which I think is what he's doing".

The Chile global started with goal as he looked to impress but ended up taking a seat within the first few minutes when he cleared the advertising hoarding and ended up on a home fan's lap.

Bournemouth dominated the first half and Eddie Howe praised his side despite the Cherries surrendering an advantage earned by Callum Wilson's 50th goal for the club.

"I think a few mistakes create instability". The attack looked disjointed and once again, it was Martial who pulled the team up and restored parity. "But then we managed to score in [stoppage] time and we got the points we lost against Chelsea".

United now face away games against Juventus in the Champions League and Manchester City in the Premier League and if they repeat this lacklustre performance, they are unlikely to escape with anything less than two heavy defeats.
