The inform Dominic Solanke was too hot to handle at Old Trafford and powered the visitors to an early 1-0 lead. Phillip Billing thunderous header added their second goal while Marcos Senesi made it safe for the Cherries with a cool finish from a corner kick. Manchester United waltz passed Chelsea 2-1 in their midweek encounter with an improved performance and were expected to carry on from that game, but it was the visitors who came away with all three points in the pouring Manchester rain.

The Red Devils will play Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League with their qualification hanging in the balance, before squaring off with Liverpool at Anfield. 

Here are the player ratings from the game. 

Andre Onana (3/10) 

The former Inter Milan custodian has now let in 21 goals in 16 matches with 14 of those goals were conceded at home. The lost-on Saturday was United’s 35th home defeat one more lost than that of the Scottish specialist Sir Alex Furguson over 21 years in charge of the Red Devils. Onana only made one save from the four shots that were on target. 

Diogo Dalot (6/10) 

Dalot was the most accurate passer to play 45 minutes or more with 95% accuracy, but he was still shades off his last performance. However, he had a lovely move with Anthony and had the chance to pull the Red Devils level. 

Harry Maguire (6/10) 

The November player of the month was outstanding again, making some last-ditch tackles which kept Man-United in the game for a long period. Irrespective of his performance he walked away empty handed.  

Luke Shaw (5/10) 

The defensive pair of Shaw and Maguire came up short as Shaw was out jumped by Billing for the second goal. Shaw was the culprit leading up to that goal as he lost the ball due to a poor pass out from the back. 

Sergio Reguilon (5/10) 

The wiry on-loan Tottenham man was busy up and down the left flank but with better decisions Manchester United would have score a goal or two from his side after a few clean breaks away on goal from a few counterattacks. He was caught out a few times which gave Bournemouth space to flood United’s goal through some of their best moves in the match. 

Sofyan Amrabat (4/10) 

Had an outstanding game against Chelsea, one of his best since making the move on loan from Juventus. In a game which had much on the line Amrabat went missing and gave Christie and Cook a field day in midfield.  


Scott McTominay (4/10) 

McTominay was rather poor, giving away the ball in crucial areas on a consistent basis. His movements off the ball was atrocious and as such he was unable to get in good shooting positions to have a pop.  

Bruno Fernades (6/10) 

Despite creating 6 chances none were tucked away. Therefore, his constant over hitting and wayward passes could not go unnoticed. He also picked up a sinical yellow card for dissent which will see him missing the class with Liverpool.  

Anthony (6/10) 

One of his best performances in recent times was against Chelsea but the skillful Brazilian could not replicate that performance. His best attribute to the game was his work rate. 

Anthony Martial (3/10) 

Martial’s performance was appalling, and the home supporters made it known with echos of boos as he exited the pitch in the second half.  

Alejandro Garnacho (5/10) 

The goal of the month recipient Garnacho failed to stamp his authority on the game. He was closely marshalled by Smith who cancelled out any attacking intensions of the winger.  

Erik Ten Hag (4/10) 

Poor choice of going with Martial from the start up front and making defensive changes when he needs goals to at least restore parity
