Man United boss Jose Mourinho speaks out on referee Kevin Friend

A frantic start to the game almost saw United almost grab a goal in the opening minutes when an Antonio Valencia cross picked out an unmarked Wayne Rooney at the back post.

Michael Carrick would probably hang up his boots if his Manchester United contract is not extended beyond the summer.

Growing uncertainty over the futures of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney threatens to overshadow Manchester United's all-important quest to return to the Champions League.

He is one of the most underrated players of his generation.

Irwin made 529 appearances for United over 12 years and he believes that fellow left-back Shaw's chance will come and that he needs to bide his time - especially with such a congested fixture list coming up. Marcos Rojo could either be shifted inside into a centre-back spot so that Daley Blind can start on the left, or the Argentine may be left out altogether to rest him ahead of Thursday's trip to Russian Federation for which Bailly is suspended.

Josh King also earned his place in the Cherries' record books by scoring a well-taken penalty at the Stretford End, thereby becoming the first ever goalscorer for his club at Old Trafford.

Manchester United could not beat Eddie Howe's side at Old Trafford, drawing 1-1 despite the visitors being reduced to ten men shortly before half-time.

Jose Mourinho took the initiative at today's press conference. It would the first time the Argentine has pulled on a United shirt since his controversial move to Manchester City in 2009.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored just one goal fewer in all competitions in 2017 (nine) than Bournemouth have (10). It could be an even bigger scoreline for Jose Mourinho's men.

The Cherries went on to hold on for the 1-1 draw, as United missed the chance to go into the top four, at the expense of Arsenal.
