Last-gasp Rashford goal earns United win at Bournemouth


[11/3/2018 4:15:50 PM]

AMMONNEWS - Manchester United substitute Marcus Rashford scored a stoppage-time winner as they came from behind to beat Bournemouth 2-1 away and close the gap on the top four in an exciting Premier League clash on Saturday.

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.

United are in provisional seventh spot on 20 points from 11 games, two points behind fourth-placed Arsenal who host second-placed Liverpool in the day’s standout fixture at 1730 GMT.

Bournemouth are sixth ahead of United on goal difference after their first home league defeat since April, when they lost 2-0 to United in the closing stages of last season’s campaign.

United manager Jose Mourinho was delighted with the outcome but furious with his team’s poor defending in the opening stages when they were fortunate to be only a goal down.

“The first half was a disaster,” Mourinho told BT Sport. “The second half was much better. We created lots of chances and deserved to score before the 92nd minute.

“We were defensively awful. I think a few mistakes create instability. I love the song, ‘attack, attack, attack’ but you need to have stability when you lose the ball.”
