Man United making life hard for themselves - Herrera

Jose Mourinho recognised Manchester United had been "very lucky" to win 2-1 at Bournemouth after an "awful" first-half display. "It would galvanise us knowing that we have had some big games this month and that we have gone toe to toe and picked up some big results".

United will face Manchester City in their next Premier League match on November 11.

The Red Devils looked shaky both in their defending and in their passing as Bournemouth looked a threat every time they went forward, with their pace and energy causing a sluggish United side some real problems. "I said at half-time I was the luckiest manager in the Premier League in a half when the score should be like 6-2", Mourinho said.

The Dutchman impressed against United on Saturday despite Bournemouth losing 2-1 to thanks Marcus Rashford's injury-time victor.

A number of clubs are said to be keeping close tabs on Ake as he continues to impress at Bournemouth this season. The bone of contention remains the focal point of the Manchester United attack, a responsibility which should be bestowed on Marcus Rashford once again, with Romelu Lukaku struggling to perform at his best. We just need that consistency for the whole game.

"Defensively we were bad". Mourinho pointed towards the duo's recovery as well, saying that they are raring to go against Bournemouth on Saturday.

Metropolitan Police said five men turned themselves in late on Monday after authorities launched an investigation into the video. Another one makes ambulance noises before saying: "That's what happens when they don't pay their rent".

"The work that we did during the week I felt like people watching this game they don't believe how hard we train this week our pressure on this opponent".

Mourinho has spoken of striving to find the right balance to a team which has developed significant defensive vulnerabilities, and Herrera's performance showed he has a further option as he attempts to establish that balance and his strongest XI.

"We can not give the first 25 minutes away, it makes the game more hard".

With 20 points from 10 games, they might even expect to be in the Champions League places at this point in the season.

Eddie Howe has praised Bournemouth youngster David Brooks after he put in a mature performance against Manchester United this afternoon.

"To be able to be a club like this and last as long as I have you need to have that courage and belief in your ability", Smalling said.
