Manchester United recover to beat Bournemouth as Rashford scored winner
Marcus Rashford sealed the winning goal in second-half stoppage time to earn United all three points
Man United boss Jose Mourinho said he was the “luckiest manager in the Premier League” in the first half as his side needed a late Marcus Rashford goal to beat Bournemouth.
Rashford netted at the second attempt following Paul Pogba’s cross.
United had been fortunate to be level at 1-1 at the interval after a poor first-half display.
“The score should have been like 6-2,” said Mourinho.
“We were defensively awful. As a team we didn’t press or do any of the work we did in the week. People watching this game will not believe how hard we worked this week.”
Mourinho said “top teams don’t start as bad” as United did and described the first-half performance as “chaotic”.
“I’m upset with that. The second half was much better. We created lots of chances and deserved to score before the 92nd minute,” he said.

My view: It was Alexis Sanchez's best game for United; even if he didn't score. Rashford still has a lot to learn, Anthony Martial is the best player on the team. For now, Sanchez, Rashford or Martial should start up front not Lukaku, who was dropped anyway. Man-U's defense was awful and Mourinho need to improve his team's right side.
