Paul Pogba gutted as Manchester United lose 1-0 to Bournemouth

Paul Pogba gutted as Manchester United lose 1-0 to Bournemouth

The Red Devils have endured a nightmare start to the 2019-20 campaign, but a three-match winning run after the global break helped ease some pressure on under-fire boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

With just 11 games of the Premier League season played, the Reds are already playing catch up in the race for a top-four finish.

"But we've got loads of players here in the squad who could create more, it's not just look outside, we have to do with what we have".

United arrived at the Vitality Stadium having won three in a row on their travels in all competitions.

United might have sensed light at the end of the tunnel over the past week but fresh questions about where they are heading will now be asked of manager Solskjaer.

Here are the three valuable factors we learnt from United's latest league fixture...

Despite Simon Francis being Bournemouth's club captain, Cook has skippered the Cherries side in all 11 games this term - starting and finishing all the league games and reaching 150 Premier League appearances.

Paul Pogba has revealed he will remain in plaster for a further ten days as he continues his recovery from injury - and admits he's "gutted" that he's not able to help his Manchester United teammates turn around their recent poor form.

Teen nicotine vaping has become so prevalent in recent years that the Food and Drug Administration has called it an "epidemic". Almost 1 million youth reported vaping daily, while 1.6 million said they vaped "frequently" on 20 or more days per month.


The Norwegian acrobatically lifted the ball beyond Victor Lindelof and bamboozled Aaron Wan-Bissaka before firing past David de Gea.

'The space came from maybe our goal-kicks, ' explained defender Steve Cook.

"I think as a whole team we started well but we were lacking a bit of end product and the quality at the end", said Solskjaer.

Daniel Farke's side were praised for their bold attacking approach on the opening night of the season against Liverpool, they simply rolled the dice and made it an open game, but eventually succumbed to a 4-1 loss.

Just four on target over 90 minutes.

Solskjaer sent on two teenagers in search of an equaliser and one, Mason Greenwood, went close, but the forward's volley from Fred's cross came back off the near post.

Those fans who had made the 250-mile journey south could, though.

He added that it was tough conceding the goal because momentum can change very quickly, as was the case yesterday when they started the brighter as both sides struggled to cope in the howling wind and rain.
