Manchester United’s ambition in getting up into the top four seat facing a slight set back this weekend as Jose Mourinho’s men were held by Bournemouth.
Coming off a EFL Cup victory, Man United got themselves into a positive start when Marcos Rojo puts them in front after 23 minutes.
However that lead was canceled out five minutes before half time break through Joshua King’s spot kick, which put the scoreline back on level terms.
Things seemingly heading back into United’s favor though as just right on the 45th minute mark, Bournemouth saw read as Andrew Surman got himself sent off.
Playing against 10-men for the entire second period, Mourinho’s side were dominant indeed, but can’t seem to find a way to break down their opponent’s defense.
There was a big chance though for the host when they were awarded a spot kick, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic saw his shot saved by Artur Boruc in the visitor’s goal.
Eventually, no more goals were scored in that match as Man United certainly felt plenty disappointment as they couldn’t maximize their numbers advantage on the pitch.
Overall, it was indeed a chaotic encounter as aside from the red card for Surman, there were several interesting incident, notably involving Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Bournemouth defender, Tyrone Mings.
