Video highlights: Man Utd 5-2 Bournemouth

Manchester United came from behind to beat Bournemouth 5-2 in the Premier League at Old Trafford on afternoon.

We fell behind after 15 minutes when some poor defending led to Harry Maguire being nutmegged by Junior Stanislas as the forward beating David de Gea at his near post with his next touch.

Mason Greenwood picked up a pass from Bruno Fernandes to slam in our equaliser on half hour before Marcus Rashford converted a penalty to give us a 2-1 lead five minutes later.

On the stroke of half-time Anthony Martial produced a sublime finish from 20 yards into the top far hand corner to seemingly put the game out-of-sight.

However, Bournemouth were awarded a soft penalty straight after half-time which was converted by half-time.

Any fightback was erased a few minutes later when Greenwood ran at defender Diego Rico before a fine right-footed effort into the far corner of Aaron Ramsdale’s goal for 4-2.

Bruno Fernandes produced a fine free kick on the hour for the final goal as a water break and number of substitutes interrupted the game, as well as Rashford having a goal disallowed.

Wins for Leicester City and Chelsea mean we remain in fifth, with five games to go, but we moved three points ahead of Wolverhampton Wanderers, who were beaten at home by Arsenal.
