'Defensively Awful': Mourinho Relieved After Man United Fightback

And just when the game seemed to be heading to a stalemate, Marcus Rashford scored the victor from close range in the injury time to seal all three points for the Red Devils.

Callum Wilson had fired Bournemouth ahead in the 11th minute but they were on the back foot after in-form Anthony Martial netted his fifth goal in the last four games in the 35th and Rashford completed the comeback from close range late on. Indeed, the Red Devils showed excellent character following a brisk start from Bournemouth in the first half, which took them by surprise. To be 1-1 in a half where it should be like five or 6-2 is really lucky, because we were really poor.

"The work that we did during the week I felt like people watching this game they don't believe how hard we train this week our pressure on this opponent".

Lukaku is without a goal in his last nine games at club level, and Ferdinand has questioned whether the Belgium worldwide will ever be able to become the player that United need him to be. There was a lot of intent and enthusiasm from the United side to grab the three points as revived Luke Shaw making darting runs into the opposition half. "Against Everton we were good, but we need to be a team who performs well in the whole game".

"It would galvanise us knowing that we have had some big games this month and that we have gone toe to toe and picked up some big results". The switch seemed to have the desired effect as United started to dominate possession. David Brooks then hacked Paul Pogba's rebound off the line.

It took a rare mistake from the outstanding Ake for Rashford to pounce and slam home the victor. I think a few mistakes create instability.

"The approach [last season] was much more defensive and with a much more defensive approach you can hide better your weaknesses", Mourinho said. I love the song "Attack, attack, attack" but you need to know that when you lose the ball you have to have stability. We improve some of the players that were nearly there but not there - Lingard, Alexis - these kind of players, that were already available but not yet at a good level. "I really can't understand the kind of mentality that brings me more white hair".
