Manchester United’s recent victory run was on Saturday cut short after Josh King’s first-half goal gave Bournemouth a 1-0 win.

The striker flicked the ball over Aaron Wan-Bissaka before beating David de Gea in first-half stoppage time as Bournemouth ended a run of 358 minutes without scoring.

They almost added to their lead after half-time, but De Gea pulled off a fine stop to keep out Harry Wilson’s low effort and was grateful to Fred for blocking another Wilson shot after the goalkeeper had slipped.

The Red Devils enjoyed plenty of the ball but Aaron Ramsdale’s goal was never in too much danger until substitute Mason Greenwood struck the post from close-range moments after coming on.

Tha miss, however, meant Bournemouth leapfrogged their visitors and ended their run of three straight wins.
