Manchester United’s already disastrous week took a turn for the worst, as they were deservedly beaten by Bournemouth and could end the weekend outside the top four.
Having gone down within two minutes, United drew level through Marouane Fellaini before conceding earlier in the second half after some more calamitous defending. With the hosts 2-1 in front, Louis Van Gaal’s side never looked like getting back in the game and slumped to their second defeat in four days.
Here’s five talking points from yesterday.
Manchester United are out of the Champions League after a rollercoaster night in Germany, saw them losing 3-2 to Wolfsburg.
United made the best possible start and were 1-0 up within 10 minutes, only to fall behind halfway through the first half. Despite a catalogue of injuries, United were briefly handed a lifeline by CSKA Moscow, who took the lead in Eindhoven, before letting PSV back in the game. United then drew level themselves but concede immediately afterward and PSV clinched the winner only seconds later to send Louis Van Gaal’s men packing.

Manchester United will need to win away at Wolfsburg in two weeks if they’re to reach the knockout stage of the Champions League after they delivered arguably their worst performance of the season against PSV Eindhoven.

Manchester United leapfrogged Arsenal and Manchester City into second place on Saturday after a late own goal earned Louis Van Gaal’s side three points at Watford.
Despite not having a single striker available, United went ahead early through a Memphis Depay goal and controlled the game for over an hour before allowing the hosts back into the game until a Troy Deeney’s penalty looked to have rescued a draw for Watford.
Luckily for United, the Watford captain also found the net at the other end of the pitch. Here’s five talking points from yesterday.
Manchester United took a potentially decisive step towards reaching the knockout stages of the Champions League after a late Wayne Rooney goal secured a precious 1-0 win against CSKA Moscow.

Here are five talking points from last night.
Manchester United slipped four points behind the league leaders on Saturday, as they produced another mind-numbingly performance against Crystal Palace, which exposed all their attacking limits.
It was the third consecutive game in which United have failed to score and they could consider themselves lucky not to have lost the game, given Palace tested David De Gea in more than one occasion.

Manchester United were knocked out of the Capital One Cup after losing on penalties against Middlesbrough on Wednesday night, as they produced an utterly dreadful performance that will heap further pressure on Louis Van Gaal.
With Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo the only survivors from Sunday’s 0-0 draw against City, United looked lethargic, sluggish in possession and absolutely devoid of ideas for the best part of the 120 minutes and squandered a host of glorious chances to secure progression to the next round.

Manchester United missed the chance to leapfrog City at the top of the table as they were held to a stalemate draw by their local rivals.
In what was a largely subdued Manchester derby, United and City outplayed each other and, in the end, the draw probably had Manuel Pellegrini feeling happier than Louis Van Gaal. United huffed and puffed but never really got going and struggled to build on last weekend’s win at Goodison Park.
