How Manchester United rated on a frustrating afternoon against Bournemouth

Manchester United missed out on the opportunity to go into the top four of the Premier League after being held to a frustrating draw against ten-man Bournemouth at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Marcos Rojo’s first Premier League goal for the hosts gave United the lead in a high-tempo encounter before Josh King capitalised on Phil Jones’ rash challenge to level things from the spot.

Andrew Surman then earnt himself an early dismissal after two yellow cards in quick succession to hand United a man advantage but they found themselves up against Artur Boruc in inspired form, with the Polish goalkeeper making a string of fine saves either side of half-time to earn his side a deserved point.


Jose Mourinho’s side remain in sixth after their seventh home draw this season, whilst Bournemouth moved a point away from the relegation spots as they look to secure their Premier League status.

David de Gea – Guessed correctly but had little chance of reaching King’s unstoppable penalty into the top corner. Other than that he didn’t have to make a single save of real note. 6.
