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.

Bournemouth 1-0 Manchester United

21 mins: 67 per cent possession for United, but they’ve done nothing with it.

Bournemouth have another great chance as SInisterra runs at Dalot. He stands him up and hits the shot across goal, but it goes wide of the far post.

Just a moment earlier, Kerkez had driven into the box and hit a shot straight at Onana.

GOAL! Bournemouth 1-0 Manchester United

15 mins: GOAL! And it’s harsh on Kambwala – an early learning curve.

Senesi wins it back on halfway and clears it towards Solanke. He tussles with Kambwala and manages to get away from the Frenchman, who slips. Solanke is all alone around 20 yards out, and he rifles it past Onana low and into the bottom left corner.
