Manchester United vs Bournemouth score and result

Manchester United vs Bournemouth score and result.

Free highlights and match report as goals from Casemiro, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford helped Manchester United complete a routine 3-0 victory over Bournemouth; Erik ten Hag’s team are now level on points with third-placed Newcastle.

Casemiro’s controlled volley from Christian Eriksen’s free-kick put Erik ten Hag’s side in front midway through the first half before Luke Shaw doubled the advantage early in the second half by finishing a fine team goal. Shaw’s brilliant pass set up Marcus Rashford for the third.

Ten Hag had made changes, welcoming Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford back to the team while Donny van de Beek started his first Premier League game at home for 19 months – although he was forced off injured before half-time following a strong challenge.

But that did nothing to halt United’s momentum – Alejandro Garnacho coming on to set up the second goal. It was a thoroughly deserved victory for United, their sixth in succession in all competitions. Bournemouth remain just two points above the relegation zone.

How Man Utd overcame the Cherries

Ten Hag tweaked his shape for this one with Bruno Fernandes starting off on the right wing in the absence of the injured Antony but there tends to be a sense of continuity about United these days. It helps that Casemiro is at the heart of that midfield.

The Brazilian was the outstanding player on the pitch in the first half, his passing range and ability to break up play being particularly impressive. But he also made the difference in front of goal here – measuring his volley beautifully to convert Eriksen’s cross from the left.

Team news

Erik ten Hag made three changes to the team that defeated Wolves with Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Donny van de Beek returning to the starting line-up. The three men to make way were Raphael Varane, Alejandro Garnacho and the injured Antony.

Bournemouth boss Gary O’Neil changed two of the side that were beaten at home to Crystal Palace. Chris Mepham and Ryan Christie came in with Jordan Zemura and Kieffer Moore taking their place among the substitutes for this one.

It was another star of United’s season who was the architect for the next two. Shaw had been filling in at centre-back of late but in his preferred position of full-back he continued his good form. Driving at the Bournemouth defence from deep, he cut through them.
