Manchester United fans dispirited after loss to Bournemouth

Manchester United fans were quickly deflated after their 1-0 loss to Bournemouth having seemingly begun to get a head of steam going.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men drew with Liverpool and defeated Partizan, Norwich and Chelsea in back to back matches to suggest they we’re finally building some momentum.

Unfortunately it all came apart against Bournemouth with United looking unlikely to score all match long despite having plenty of time to net an equaliser.

In truth, Eddie Howe’s men shouldn’t have even gotten the opener with Joshua King allowed to bring down the ball in the penalty box and swivel and score despite being surrounded by his opponents.

It was an unusual piece of defending by the Red Devils and it ultimately cost them all three points.

Now Manchester United have the chance to bounce back in the Europa League but the truth was they need results in the Premier League more so than anywhere else.

After all, Solskjaer’s job will depend on how well they do in the league unless he manages to put in an unlikely cup challenge and win a trophy in Europe to qualify for the Champions League.

United are clearly having teething problems but they shouldn’t be as bad as they have been at times this season.
