Romelu Lukaku not included in Man Utd squad vs Bournemouth

Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho is struggling to understand why Manchester United have developed a habit of starting games slowly after they hit back to snatch a dramatic 2-1 win against Bournemouth.

Instead, they went into the break on level terms after Anthony Martial's 35th minute strike cancelled out an early opener from Bournemouth forward Callum Wilson. It doesn't matter how many minutes until the end of the game, we have the feeling of anything can happen and, even missing chances like we did in the second half, chance after chance after chance, they keep going until the end.

All this was done without the services of Romelu...

United were dominant in the second half and should have won the game long before Rashford's victor.

Defensively they looked a bag of nerves as Bournemouth relentlessly attacked down both wings.

After netting his sixth goal in 12 matches this season, Martial appears to have revived his Old Trafford career in recent weeks after allegedly falling out with Jose Mourinho early in the season.

It was an interesting game of football as Manchester United came from behind to secure a 2-1 draw against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. Absolutely very bad. And when I say defensively I don't just mean my defenders, I mean as a team.

Bournemouth might have ran away with it but paid for their profligacy with Anthony Martial equalising for United despite the Cherries' superior play.

"It was a tough one for us", said Howe after the game. Supposed defensive wizard Mourinho, meanwhile, has already had 17 goals shipped past his men - only Burnley, Cardiff, Fulham, and Huddersfield have allowed more. Had Ryan Fraser, Wilson and Stanislas done better in good positions, an utterly awful United would rightly have been well adrift inside 30 minutes. I love the song "Attack, attack, attack" but you need to know that when you lose the ball you have to have stability.

"I don't like to say we don't score many goals because our strikers aren't scoring, I don't like to say we concede too many goals because my goalkeeper does not save anything", Mourinho said. We created lots of chances and in the end we have the goal that give us important points.

After scoring eight goals in 28 games a year ago, he has caught fire scoring six and assisting another four in the opening 11 fixtures this season.
