Manchester United suffer defeat at Bournemouth as ex-Red Devils Josh King bags winner

2 Nov

Manchester United’s mini-revival has come to a dour end with Bournemouth inflicting a 1-0 defeat on them at the Vitality Stadium.

Both sides were far from their best as they had to deal with the very windy conditions but the Cherries were good value for their win having created more clear-cut chances.

To make matters worse for Man United, it was a former player who scored the winning goal in Josh King with an acrobatic effort just before half-time.

Earlier in the game, Anthony Martial went down in the box but was denied a penalty. The incident was looked at by VAR.

The visitors came close with efforts from Mason Greenwood and Scott McTominay in the closing stages but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men showed a real lack of urgency in their fourth Premier League defeat of the season.
