Manchester United
FT
1 - 1
AFC Bournemouth

Z. Ibrahimović (PM) 72'
40' J. King (P)
...
PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEP!

The war ends, and it's 1-1. 

How Manchester United will rue their multiple missed chances, and their inability to make the most of playing 11 v 10 for the majority of the half. 

United stay where they are, and Bournemouth come away with a valuable point. 

That's all for me, Anirudh Menon signing out. 

Toodle-ooo
...
95' POGBA MISSES ANOTHER GOLDEN CHANCE! AS HE SIMPLY CAN'T GET THE BALL OUT OF HIS FEET FROM TWO FEET OUT. HOW! HOW! HOW!
...
94' Martial is harried by Arter all the way back to his own goal, and if United had conceded there, I'm confident Mourinho would have slaughtered him. The ball is pumped back forward. 
...
93' OW POGBAAAAAAAAAAA!! HE MISCUES HIS SHOT AS THE BALL FALL AT HIS FEET FIVE YARDS FROM GOAL!
...
92' Valencia tries to find Zlatan, but it's overhit by a yard or two. 
...
91' Mata gives the ball away by playing it straight to Gosling. There's FIVE MINUTES OF STOPPAGE TIME.  
...
90' Rojo remains forward and puts the ball into the area, but it's too close to Boruc. 
...
89' Mata tries to play the ball in, but Cook clears comfortably. Rojo lets fly from forty yards, but Afobe closes him down. 
...
87' King comes on for the speedy Max Gradel. 
...
85' Martial tries to curl one in, and the Frenchman again appeals for a penalty... but Friend is having none of it. United keep the ball though, and Rashford tries to force his way down the right.  Pogba tries an audacious outside of the foot ball that is cleared by Gosling. 
...
83' Pogba chips another hopeful ball in, but it's not a great one and Boruc claims comfortably. Afobe skins Fellaini, but his ball in is behind everyone. 
...
82' They can't in this corner, and Fellaini brings it forward.... 
...
81' Bournemouth have a CORNER!!! Could they... they couldn't, could they?
...
80' Smith gets bundled off the pitch by a Rashford shoulder barge. Friend stays true to his form today and inexplicably books the United youngster. 
...
79' Rashford tries to take on Cargill, and succeeds in doing that, but Boruc comes off his line and shepherds the ball to safety
...
78' Mings is off for PL debutant Cargill. Pogba, meanwhile, sweeps the free kick into row Z. 
...
77' Harry Arter dives into Pogba, and the midfielder is lucky to continue to remain in the match. A match to forget for Kevin Friend. 
...
74' The corner comes to nothing, but Mings is down with a great degree of pain. Fellaini bundled into him, and he did look like he hyperextended his left leg. 
...
73' Antonio Valencia is limping around the right flank... this is going from bad to worse for United. Rashford has a pop from just outside the box, but Mings blocks it enough to divert it away for a corner. Meanwhile, Arter has been clattered into by Pogba and he has to step off for treatment.
...
71' ZLATAN'S KICK IS SAVED BY BORUC! OH MY LORD WHAT A DRAMATIC GAME WE HAVE ON OUR HANDS... Exceptional save by Boruc.
...
71' PENALTY!!! Smith gets penalised for a blatant handball.  
...
69' The trio come on for Carrick, Shaw and Wayne Rooney. ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK screams the subs. 
...
68' Looks like Mourinho is preparing a triple substitution - Fellaini, Lingard and Rashford are stripped down and ready to come on  
...
65' Bournemouth enjoy their first meander forward and King does exceptionally well to Jones to set it off. Smith is played in on the right, but his cross is blocked by Rooney. United see them off and they can counter at pace... but Valencia's ball into the box has way too much on it. 
...
64' Zlatan takes the kick... and it's a poor one that hammers off the wall. Mata's corner creates a measure of confusion, but Bournemouth do well to scramble clear. 
...
63' Martial effortlessly glides past Gosling and Fraser before laying it off to Pogba.. He skips past Arter before being taken down by Gosling. 
...
62' Pogba almoooost picks out Zlatan with a peach of a ball and Boruc collects with a sigh of relief.  
...
60' Shaw picks out Rooney after some neat passing, but the captain's strayed well offside. 
...
58' Valencia bombs down the right flank and tries to pick out Zlatan in the centre, but his cross is way too overhit. 
...
57' Carrick gets a yellow for stopping King in rather blatant fashion. No complaints from the veteran. This is still a very feisty encounter. 
...
56' Smith and Mings almost get themselves into a tangle in the box, but they clear somehow... it's all United though and the pressure is bordering in on the incessant. 
...
55' Martial cuts in again and picks out Mata, but the Spaniard is ushered away. Pogba gets the ball just outside the box, and lets fly - but Boruc dives well to save. 
...
54' Martial bombards down the left and tries to pick out someone in the box, but Cook heads it clear. 
...
53' Nothing comes out of the corner, but Shaw puts the ball back in. Rooney controls it brilliantly and smacks it at goal with his left foot, but its brilliantly blocked by Mings. United win a corner, then another... and then yet another. 
...
52' This is lovely interplay from United... Mata and Rooney at the very heart of it. Mata cuts into the box and lifts a hopeful ball into the far post where Daniels is happy to guide it away for a corner  
...
49' Nothing comes off the corner, but United still have the ball... Zlatan smashes it at goal, but his best friend Mings gets in the way and it's blocked off. 
...
48' Martial tries to twinkle-toe past Bournemouth, but they crowd him out, but the ball is worked back to him and he floats it in with extreme prejudice, Cook does well to guide it away for a corner. 
...
47' Fraser's ball in is way too long for anyone in blue. United keep the ball, and are passing it around with calm confidence. 
...
46' Pugh has been taken off for Gosling, and Bournemouth win an early freekick...
...
