Rashford Snatches Stoppage Time Win As Man Utd Edge Bournemouth

Marcus Rashford's composed finish in the second minute of stoppage time at the end of the second-half secured their latest recovery from a losing position and their third victory from four in the league, ultimately further easing the pressure on their manager.

By the time Callum Wilson put Bournemouth ahead on 11 minutes, the home side had already created three strong openings and it was only a mild exaggeration when Jose Mourinho said United should have trailed 6-2 at the break.

Meanwhile, the Manchester United attacking unit is at full strength, with Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard now fully fit.

The expectation for the game, especially for Chelsea fans will be nothing short of a win but they will be more delighted to have Belgium worldwide Eden Hazard back to the team either as a starter or coming in from the bench.

"I think when you look at Juventus, they just ran the midfield at Old Trafford and we couldn't get anywhere near them".

Smalling said that he and his teammates were much improved after the interval, and that gives them the belief that can get something at the Allianz Stadium. We've had an inconsistent start to the season and every point is huge for us.

Ander Herrera had been particularly influential after being introduced as a substitute for the second half. Now it seems that they can't do without the French winger, who scored in his fourth straight Premier League appearance against Bournemouth.

But Wenger , with his huge experience and remarkable track record with Arsenal , is arguably a much safer pair of hands to guide Milan back into the European elite.

Lukaku dropped to the bench for the Premier League clash against Everton eight days ago.

Sanchez got the nod ahead of Rashford, a starter against Everton, but the Chile global had little chance to shine during the opening stages when Bournemouth could have sealed the points.

However, the English talent was once again a substitute at Bournemouth on Saturday but proved his point to the manager with an added-time victor to seal a 2-1 victory.

After a Bournemouth corner was half-cleared, a superb Lewis Cook pass sent Stanislas through in the right channel and his low cross was ideal for Wilson to tuck away past De Gea.

He showed this numerous times during his stint up front, including when he set up Martial's equaliser.

Bournemouth had a remarkable double escape in the 65th when Nathan Ake threw his body in the way of a shot from England striker Rashford after Young had hit the woodwork. However, Rashford made amends in the final seconds when he turned in Paul Pogba's cross from close-range.
