Highlights from Manchester United's win over Bournemouth in the Premier League.

Anthony Martial's 35th-minute goal, his fifth from those same four games, had given the visitors cause for encouragement towards the end of the first half, during which they fell behind to Callum Wilson's 11th-minute finish and were consistently put under pressure.

Callum Wilson's first half goal suggested Jose Mourinho and Man Utd were going to be on the other end of another disappointing result.

Mourinho said pre-match that United can not consider themselves in the title race until they fight their way back into the top four, but his players collected a vital three points at the start of a tough week of fixtures. At halftime I thought I was the luckiest manager in the Premier League should have been 5-2 or 6-2 (to Bournemouth). "So I think he was really good for us".

"But there's certainly not a guarantee that if they keep winning and players play well, that he's just going to waltz back into the team". We didn't start pressing up or doing what we worked on during the week.

But while he admitted that task remains a work in progress, he believes United are showing the powers of recovery required to overcome setbacks and turn games around.

While Howe was impressed by his side's performance, especially in the first half, he admitted that the result at full time was hard to come to terms with.

The ball fell to Rashford whose close range shot was blocked by Nathan Ake.

Roy Hodgson, Eddie Howe and Chris Hughton are all regarded as some of the top managers in the division but Mourinho manages to cast a spell over them when they face Manchester United.

The Red Devils significantly improved in the second half and began hassling Bournemouth defenders. "We created lots of chances, we deserved to score before the minute 90-something", Mourinho added. "The team performed much better". I was happy with bringing Ander Herrera into the game.

'In the last few years I think we have been known for shutting up shop and not conceding many goals so this season has been very unusual'. "The two points we lost in the last minute against Chelsea, we got them back".

"I can't understand [the slow starts]".

Bournemouth is off to their best start in the Premier League ever. In the second half, we were fantastic and we want to be a whole-game team.
