Bournemouth 1-2 Manchester United: Three Things We Learned

Bournemouth 1-2 Manchester United: Three Things We Learned

"They were better in the first", Herrera told BT Sport.

But after Marcus Rashford's stoppage-time victor, which gave United a 2-1 victory, Jose Mourinho's team now head into a heavyweight week in the Champions League and Premier League on the back of two straight wins.

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.

By the time Callum Wilson put Bournemouth ahead on 11 minutes, the home side had already created three strong openings and it was only a mild exaggeration when Jose Mourinho said United should have trailed 6-2 at the break.

May said on MUTV's Matchday Review programme: "I think Ander could have played himself into the team there". 'I took two minutes, and what I did in two minutes walking the players can not do in 45 minutes on the bus'.

Substitute Ander Herrera was excellent and almost scored, with fellow sub Rashford scoring the vital late goal from close range. Indeed, the Red Devils showed excellent character following a brisk start from Bournemouth in the first half, which took them by surprise. Man United need to be focused right from the off, without making themselves work twice as hard later on chasing the game.




Mourinho had expressed his confidence before this game that United's position in the Premier League table would look very different heading into the second half of the season.

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid gaffer has always been a defensive-minded coach, but this new season has not only seen his Red Devils attack poorly, but also defend their goal shockingly by leaking in a plethora of goals.

He added that he was frustrated by the team continuing to start slowly, "I really can not understand the kind of [early-match] mentality that brings me more white hair!"

However, Jose Mourinho has explained the main reason for Lukaku not being in the squad for United's game on the South Coast.

"We were ready for everything, I can't understand the mentality that brings me more white hair!"

The striker has been enduring a poor run of form, having not scored for United since the middle of September, and could miss the Champions League trip to Turin due to injury.
