Commentary

Thanks for joining our commentary this afternoon. Until next time, goodbye.
Next up for Manchester United is their away trip against Juventus in the Champions League as they look to bounce back from their defeat to the Italian side at Old Trafford. Bournemouth are next in action against Newcastle on the road next week in the Premier League.
Marcus Rashford scores a stoppage-time winner to guide Manchester United to a comeback win over Bournemouth this afternoon. The Cherries took the lead through Callum Wilson in the early stages of the game, but the visitors were able to equalise through Anthony Martial, who continued his impressive form by notching his fifth goal of the Premier League season. United missed a host of chances in the second half, including Rashford who failed to convert from close range. However, Jose Mourinho's men got their reward when Rashford converted in the 92nd minute to hand his team a vital victory on the road.

Bournemouth were on top and had United on the ropes in the opening 20 minutes, but couldn't score the decisive second goal to take command of the game. United were slick enough in the final third to notch the equaliser and that will give the visitors confidence as they've been far from their best this afternoon.
It's all square at the break between Bournemouth and Manchester United at the Vitality Stadium. The Cherries dominated the early stages of the game and took a deserved lead when Callum Wilson converted Junior Stanislas' low cross into the box. Eddie Howe's men remained on top and could have been awarded a penalty for a clumsy challenge by Luke Shaw on David Brooks. However, the referee waved play on and United soon found a way back into the game when Anthony Martial scored his fifth Premier League goal of the campaign to send the contest level at the interval.

39' WIDE! Sanchez battled with Ake in the box from a long ball forward and he heads it back towards the run of Mata. The Spaniard controls it before firing at goal, only to curl his effort wide of the target.
37' United were dominated in opening 20 minutes of the game, but have managed to scrap their way back into the contest. Mourinho will be thrilled to be heading towards the break level.

23' Pressure from Francis forces a mistake from Matic on the half-way line. He releases Wilson in behind the United defence down the right flank. The striker has to be patient for support as Francis joins the attack before teeing up Stanislas for a strike, but his effort is saved with ease by De Gea.
21' Lewis Cook loses out to Fred on the edge of his own box and Matic almost releases Martial, but Steve Cook is there with a strong challenge to stop his run.
19' WIDE! Steve Cook picks out Smith on the left flank with a sublime cross-field pass. The full-back cuts inside and curls a cross into the middle. Smalling opts to leave the ball and De Gea is stranded in the middle of his goal. The United duo watch as the cross trickles inches wide of the post.

After winning their first Premier League meeting with Man Utd (2-1 in December 2015), Bournemouth are winless in their last five against the Red Devils (drawn one, lost four).
United make one change to their side from their win over Everton on Monday. Rashford drops out of the team as Sanchez earns a recall, leaving Martial to spearhead the attack alongside the Chilean and Mata. Romelu Lukaku is absent after picking up a knock in training.
Bournemouth rung the changes for their clash against Norwich in the EFL Cup, but are back to a more familiar line-up this afternoon. There is one change to their side from their win over Fulham last week as Stanislas gets the nod to start over Daniels. Fraser drops back into a wing-back role with Stanislas supporting Wilson in the final third.

United have had their issues this season in the Premier League, although shoots of recovery are starting to appear. Jose Mourinho's side are unbeaten in their last three matches in the top flight, seeing off Everton in their last game on Monday night. The club are still off the pace of the Champions League places, but a win today would take them in striking distance of their rivals.
Bournemouth enter today's fixture ahead of United in the Premier League table, sitting in sixth - two places abouve the Red Devils. Eddie Howe's men have enjoyed an impressive start to the campaign and are in good form. The Cherries are unbeaten in their last six matches in all competitions, including their last outing in the EFL Cup which saw them defeat Norwich City to advance to the quarter-finals of the competition.
Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between Bournemouth and Manchester United at the Vitality Stadium.
