Man. Utd V AFC Bournemouth - As it happened.
FT: Man Utd 5-2 Bournemouth. An ultimately comfortable victory for United, who caused their own problems to a certain extent. Greenwood was the star with two sublime goals, with Martial – who scored a stunner – Rashford and Fernandes all chipping in too.
Five minutes of added time.
CHANCE! Wonderful vision from Fernandes, who drops into a pocket of space and slides a fantastic throughball in behind for Ighalo, but the ex-Watford forward sends his finish wide.
Ramsdale makes a fine block from Shaw, who poked the ball towards goal after pulling down Pogba’s lovely crossfield pass.
United make their final changes: Mata and Ighalo replace Rashford and Martial.
Jack Stacey comes on for Bournemouth, replacing Adam Smith. Another change: Dan James replaces the remarkable Mason Greenwood.
Another poor clearance from De Gea gives Bournemouth the chance to attack, but Wilson’s cross is easily cleared.
Three changes for Bournemouth. Harry Wilson, Dan Gosling and Philip Billing replace Stanislas, Solanke and Lewis Cook. And Manchester United have brought Fred on for Nemanja Matic.
NO GOAL! Rashford slides in to tuck home from a cross from the right, but he is given offside. There will, though, be a check with VAR... And it doesn't stand!
GOAL GIVEN! Bournemouth thought Matic was offside when Fernandes took the free-kick. VAR decided not.
Another brilliant goal! Fernandes whipped the free-kick over the wall and into the far corner, but it’s being checked by VAR.
Kelly fouls Martial just outside the area. Pogba and Fernandes are over the ball.
What an incredible goal from Greenwood! United have been under pressure but they manage to keep a move alive after a bit of pinball in the area. The ball falls to Greenwood and, after skipping away from Ramsdale, the youngster slams a fantastic right-footed finish into the top-right corner. However, there is going to be a VAR check for offside... But it stands!
Danjuma has a goal disallowed for offside! Bournemouth are all over United at the moment. They broke three on three, with Danjuma beating de Gea with a nonchalant toepoke. But he was offside when King put him through on goal.
GOAL! King hammers it home from 12 yards and it's United 2-1 Bournemouth.
The penalty stands! Bournemouth could just have a way back into the contest. King will take it...
What a start to the second half. This is all a bit of a mess, and VAR are checking whether a) it came off Bailly’s shoulder or the arm and b) whether it was inside the area. Both are very close. I’m not sure there’s enough evidence to overturn the original decision.
Eric Bailly has replaced Victor Lindelof at half-time, while Arnaut Danjuma is on for the injured David Brooks for Bournemouth.
HT: Utd 3-1 Bournemouth. United lead 3-1 at the break, despite going behind to Stanislas’ 16th-minute strike. Greenwood levelled the score with a powerful effort before the half-hour, with Rashford then putting the hosts ahead from the spot before Martial curled in an excellent third.
WHAT A GOAL! That is a sublime, sensational strike from Martial, who puts United 3-1 up in some style. Fernandes fed it out wide, with Shaw making a good overlapping run to give Martial the space to cut inside and, from there, the France international plants a wonderful finish into the top-right corner.
GOAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLL TONY MARTIAL!!!!!
OFFSIDE! Fernandes picks out Shaw with an exquisite pass, with the full-back hitting the base of the upright. However, the linesman’s flag was up.
Bournemouth have been bright on the break, so they aren’t out of this game yet
United get lucky! De Gea and Maguire again combine to put the hosts in trouble, with the duo attempting to play it out from the back. Maguire’s pass is then blocked into the path of Solanke, who finishes, but he is flagged offside.
RASHFORD MAKES IT 2-1! United lead now, with their number 10 having calmly sent a low finish into the bottom-right corner. Ramsdale guessed the right way, but couldn’t get down to it.
PENALTY TO UNITED! It’s a handball from Smith, who clearly handled from Martial’s header. VAR will check the decision, but it seems set to stand.
Yellow card for Lerma after he slid in to try and win a loose ball, only to completely miss it and instead make contact with Martial.
Rashford raced clear down the right and found Fernandes, who had the awareness and quality to prod a precise pass into Greenwood, who got the ball out of his feet before slamming home.
GOAAAAALLLLLL!!!! Mason Greenwood fires back.
Wan-Bissaka races forward down the right to latch onto a pass from Pogba. He drills in a low cross, but Kelly does well to clear the danger.
Stanislas wallops a bouncing ball over the bar from long range. He’s made a very confident start.
SAVE! Pogba wins a free-kick 25 yards out, which Rashford takes. The forward’s effort is a good one, heading for the left-hand corner, but Ramsdale dives over to parry it wide.
BOURNEMOUTH TAKE THE LEAD! Well, totally against the run of play, the visitors are 1-0 up. United have had all of the ball, but one cross into the area causes issues for their defence. Stanislas picks up the scraps and, after easily getting past Maguire, he slots in beyond De Gea at the near post.
CHANCE! It should really be 1-0! Fernandes gets through on goal, having raced onto a perfectly weighted pass from Rashford. However, with Ramsdale having rushed out to close the angle, the Portugal International lifts his finish over the bar. Given the form he is in, it’s a real surprise not to see him hit the target.
Rashford and Martial combine down the left, with Fernandes then latching onto the loose ball in the box. The former Sporting CP playermaker lifts in a cross, but Greenwood is on the far side of the area and Ramsdale is able to collect it with ease.
Bournemouth have started brightly, trying to keep the pressure and possession before the game gets away from them.
And we're off in Old Trafford!
If their current for is anything to go by, then it probably won't be their day after all. Bournemouth sit 19th, having lost all of their matches since the resumption of the season.
And a fun fact for you all! Bournemouth have never won at Old Trafford... Could this day be their day?
Two teams currently operating at different ends of the spectrum go head-to-head at Old Trafford today, with United – buoyed by the excellent form of Bruno Fernandes – pushing for a Champions League place.
Bournemouth starting XI: Ramsdale; Smith, Ake, Kelly, Rico; Lerma, L Cook; Brooks, Stanislas; King, Solanke.
Manchester United starting XI: de Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Pogba, Matic; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial.
Let's take a look at those line-ups shall we?
