Bournemouth 1-2 Manchester United: Marcus Rashford Scores Injury Time Winner

Marcus Rashford scored a 92nd-minute winner at Dean Court to somehow hand Manchester United a victory that they barely deserved against Bournemouth.

Jose Mourinho spent much of the opening 35 minutes either shouting at his side on the touchline or sitting stone-faced in the dugout, as his United side struggled to cope with a Cherries side full of verve and vigour.

Irrepressible and full of confidence after six wins in their opening 10 matches, Bournemouth tore into United from the off and deservedly took an 11th-minute lead through Callum Wilson, turning home Junior Stanislas’ cutback.

United were completely lamentable during the first period, but somehow went into the break level; their one quality move finished off by in-form Anthony Martial.

From there, United took control and showed character, much improved in the second period and somehow failed to take the lead when Ashley Young’s freekick hit the post, Rashford’s effort was blocked by Nathan Ake and Pogba’s fluffed shot was smashed off the line by David Brooks.

In injury time, substitute Rashford made amends, firing home from close range at the second attempt after Pogba’s cross had cut out Ake.

Goalless in five, Marcus Rashford was relegated to the substitutes’ bench.
