Bournemouth had to settle for a point against Manchester United after a controversial penalty decision allowed the lacklustre visitors to draw level in the second half.

Dominic Solanke’s fizzing effort gave the Cherries the lead before Bruno Fernandes turned a loose ball into the back of the net from close range. The hosts took advantage of some slack defending as Justin Kluivert weaved into the box and slotted the ball past Andre Onana to restore the lead.

With United bereft of creativity and pass bounced up to strike Adam Smith on the arm inside his own box with referee Tony Harrington pointing to the spot and VAR deciding not to overturn. Fernandes scored the penalty and salvaged a draw for Erik ten Hag’s men.

GOAL! Bournemouth 2-1 Manchester United

35 mins: GOAL! The home side lead again.

Solanke finds himself in the acres of space that this Manchester United midfield often leave vacant, and Bournemouth work another attack.

Senesi plays it to Kluivert, who himself is in acres of space down the United right-hand side, and he just cuts inside before smashing a low shot past Onana.

GOAL! Bournemouth 1-1 Manchester United

30 mins: GOAL! United are level.

Garnacho gets a second attempt at a cross, and this time it’s behind Hojlund but it bounces off Zabarnyi and bounces up perfectly for Fernandes. The United captain rifles a volley past Neto.
