They ultimately won it through substitute Marcus Rashford in stoppage time, but Jose Mourinho was unable to ignore his side's performance in the first 45 minutes.

Rashford's close-range finish came after Anthony Martial's effort had cancelled out Callum Wilson's early opener for Bournemouth at Dean Court.

Fraser was responsible for creating the first clear chance in the second half when he attacked from the left and cut-back to David Brooks, who flicked towards goal with his heel to force De Gea into a reaction save.

All this was done without the services of Romelu... "Against Everton we were good, but we need to be a team who performs well in the whole game".

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

Manchester United will be looking to close-in on the top four with a win when they take on Bournemouth at Dean Court on Saturday lunchtime.

However, Chelsea slumped to fifth place in Conte's second season in charge, playing some poor football after some questionable moves in the transfer market by the former Juventus manager.

Bournemouth dominated the first half and Eddie Howe praised his side despite the Cherries surrendering an advantage earned by Callum Wilson's 50th goal for the club.

That's the verdict of Danny Murphy, who thinks Jose Mourinho's men are more anxious about losing games in the first 45 minutes. Had Ryan Fraser, Wilson and Stanislas done better in good positions, an utterly terrible United would rightly have been well adrift inside 30 minutes. Absolutely terrible. And when I say defensively I don't just mean my defenders, I mean as a team.

Mourinho said in a press conference after the game: "It is fantastic to have this feeling that doesn't matter the result, we know the game is not over. No, I think in the next nine matches he's going to score a few goals". Now, Alexis and Lingard are after one good week of work with the team.

Mourinho had expressed his confidence before this game that United's position in the Premier League table would look very different heading into the second half of the season.

"In that when they start games, they're more anxious about losing the game than thinking, 'We're just going to go and win it!'"
