After losing the Manchester derby, on Sunday, it was imperative that Manchester United got back to winning ways against Bournemouth.

They did exactly that with a narrow 1-0 win but the performance given was far from impressive with Bournemouth pushing Manchester United all the way and almost grabbing a share of the spoils.

The closest Manchester United came to adding to their narrow lead was when a drive from Marcus Rashford crashed against the cross-bar.

Three more points in the bag but the gap, with Manchester City winning away to Swansea, remains as large as ever.
