After the defeat inflicted, at Old Trafford, by Manchester City, on Sunday, it was essential Manchester United got back to winning ways against Bournemouth.

They did exactly that but the performance provided wasn`t one of the more memorable ones with Manchester united looking a little lacklustre.

After the game, Jose Mourinho had this to say to the media about the result, remarking,

‘The City game was a big one, and a defeat does not help in your recovery – victories help, defeats don’t.

‘Bournemouth were difficult opponents and difficult conditions. If we had scored the second it would have been a calm night for us.

‘I am pleased with the three points. They had one more day’s rest than us, they were fresher than us, and mentally fresher because a big match takes more from our players.

‘The title race is only over in May. If it is over now I go on holiday to Brazil or Los Angeles.’

But the gap remains huge and City have now won fifteen Premier League games on the bounce.
