Zlatan Ibrahimovic Premier League Manchester United v Bournemouth
Jose Mourinho's men had to settle for a point at home after dominating the game, and it is becoming a worrying regular occurance

Manchester United were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw against 10-man Bournemouth on Saturday at Old Trafford.

Vicious Zlatan could cost Man Utd dear

It proved a frustrating experience for the Red Devils as they laid siege to their opponents’ goal, even seeing a Zlatan Ibrahimovic penalty repelled by Artur Boruc.

Over the course of the match, United mustered 20 efforts on the Cherries goal but were only able to breach their defences once.

However, that is a sadly familiar experience for Jose Mourinho’s side, who have failed to win four times this season after having had 20 or more shots at their opponents’ goal – more than any other side in the Premier League.

Still outside the top four, this statistic could be the one that costs them the Champions League next season.
