Bournemouth 1-2 Manchester United: Three Things We Learned

Heather Diaz

Mourinho highlighted the contribution of his second half substitute Ander Herrera as the key to United's revival.

We passed the ball well and there was really good intensity to our play. "We need to work on that because normally we don't concede many and we win the game". 'I think in the second half we could have had four or five goals. They got the win here and deserve credit for extending their resurgence to four games unbeaten in the league, but there are not merely cracks on show but gaping chasms, most of which are still found in the defence and their £130million midfield.

Chris Smalling has acknowledged Manchester United must start making quicker starts to games but the defender believes their latest last-gasp win provides further evidence of a team spirit reminiscent of the Alex Ferguson era. Shame, really, on those who are said to have been involved in discussing a plan that would wreak unprecedented damage on the wider game - a group which is reported to have included United.

"I think the (biggest) impact was Ander Herrera", he said.

"I love the song "attack, attack, attack", but when you lose the ball you have to have stability, and we did not have it against a good team". Bournemouth must have thought they would come away with at least a point, especially after Jesse Lingard missed a chance just before the end, but United kept coming - as they have recently under Mourinho, even if the engine sometimes stalls along the way.

The Premier League match between Bournemouth and Manchester United will be broadcast on NBCSN. "That is a fantastic quality for a team".

"We will wait for Monday".

7 - With Romelu Lukaku ruled out after picking up an injury in training on Friday, Mourinho's key decision was to start Sanchez at centre-forward in place of Marcus Rashford.

Sanchez last started a match for United in the 0-0 draw with Valencia in the Champions League a month ago.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe insists that is a matter for Southgate but praised his player's contribution.

In what comes as frustrating news to Manchester United fans, star duo Anthony Martial and David De Gea have reportedly refused to sign new long-term contracts with the club.

"He continues to score goals and again today he was a real, real threat".
