Marcus Rashford scored in stoppage time as Manchester United beat Bournemouth 2-1
Alexis Sanchez takes a seat… in the stand!
Alexis Sanchez got a rare start as United’s No 9 in the absence of Romelu Lukaku, having been resigned to the bench in recent weeks.
The Chile international started with purpose as he looked to impress but ended up taking a seat within the first few minutes when he cleared the advertising hoarding and ended up on a home fan’s lap.
Sanchez took it well amid cheers from the home support as he put his arm on the fan’s shoulder and was all smiles as he swiftly returned to the action.

Imagine being sat from front row and having a rogue Alexis Sanchez nearly fall into your lap

Fred’s embarrassing dive
The Brazilian midfielder had a day to forget – not least because he was hammered on social media for a ridiculous dive.
Some United fans attempted to argue that he had merely fallen over but few were willing to fall for the antics.
A number of football fans called on the Premier League to clamp down on simulation retrospectively. He got away with it on this occasion but keep that up and he will soon land himself an unwanted reputation.
My god that's an embarrassing dive from Fred
That dive from Fred was beyond ridiculous! It’s time for the @premierleague to have post match video reviews for diving and ban players for at least 2-3 games. #BOUMUN
Fred with the most embarrassing dive and theatrics of the season so far; even Tom Daley has his head in his hands… #MUFC #BOUMUN
‘We’re f*****’ thought Mourinho
As Callum Wilson tapped home with consummate ease after just 11 minutes, the signs were not good for United.
Defensively they looked a bag of nerves as Bournemouth relentlessly attacked down both wings.
And as Wilson made it 1-0, the camera panned to an unimpressed Jose Mourinho who was pictured muttering ‘we’re f*****’ to the rest of his coaching staff.
In the end, he had nothing to worry about…
Rashford miss has Jose in disbelief!
When Marcus Rashford saw the goal open up for him, it seemed inevitable that United would take a 2-1 lead.
Ashley Young’s free-kick crashed against the crossbar before Nathan Ake put his body on the line to miraculously block Rashford’s goalbound shot.
Mourinho was in no mood to applaud the bravery of Ake and instead had his head in his hands as he bemoaned the lack of clinical edge from his attack.
Rashford more than made amends later in the game, though…
United boss Mourinho had his head in his hands when Rashford’s shot was blocked by Ake
He turned to his bench in bewilderment about how the golden opportunity had not gone in
Jose Mourinho gonna Jose Mourinho
You did not need to be a body language expert to know what was on Mourinho’s mind as he slouched on his bench in annoyance at the game.
Rubbing his fingers together, fans quickly noted Mourinho’s gesture for more money having only recently stopped talking about the targets he missed out on in the summer.
Money, money, money…
#BOUMUN "What would make you happy right now Maty?"
Callum Wilson is a man on fire!
The Bournemouth striker is enjoying one of his finest starts to the season in his entire career.
He has been prolific for the Cherries in recent weeks and continued his scoring run against United when he converted Junior Stanislas’ cross after 11 minutes.
Wilson is now tied with Eden Hazard with six goals and four assists meaning no other player has been in more Premier League goals this season.
10 – No player has been involved in more @premierleague goals this season than Callum Wilson (6 goals, 4 assists – level with Eden Hazard). Perfect. #BOUMUN
