Premier League 2019/20: Bournemouth 1-0 Manchester United: 5 talking points as the Red Devils lose at the Vitality Stadium
- Manchester United suffered their fourth league defeat of the season at Bournemouth, and here are the main talking points.
#4 Ryan Fraser under par
Last year, Ryan Fraser was Bournemouth’s shining light. The Scotsman directly contributed to 21 goals in 38 PL appearances. This season, the 25-year-old has badly struggled for form, only scoring once in his last 10 appearances. Many feel it was his quite public contractual situation in the summer, that has unsettled him whilst also casting a doubt over his commitment to the club.
The higher-ups at Bournemouth were not impressed with the fiasco. It’s rumoured that Arsenal was heavily interested in Fraser and because of that interest, the Scotsman became unwilling to sign a new contract. As things stand, Fraser’s current deal expires in July, with a new contract offer in the works.
Today, Fraser didn’t do much to prove to the higher-ups that he’s worthy of a new deal. The 25-year-old could only complete one dribble, complete 28 passes and was dispossessed twice in a poor performance.Published 02 Nov 2019, 21:38 IST
