Callum Wilson's first half goal suggested Jose Mourinho and Man Utd were going to be on the other end of another disappointing result.
"So, Herrera coming on had a big change on the game".
But despite that miss by the England striker, whose first Premier League goal since September later redeemed him, Mourinho felt United delivered a much improved performance after the interval. United came agonisingly close to taking a lead when Paul Pogba unleashed a bullet of a shot, only to see it parried away by the Cherries goalkeeper. Defensively bad, absolutely terrible, and when I say defensively I don't just look to my defenders, I look to my team as a team we didn't start pressing up.
The win for United means they are now level on 20 points with Bournemouth, and are four games unbeaten in the Premier League, following a less-than-convincing start to the season.

And just when the game seemed to be heading to a stalemate, Marcus Rashford scored the victor from close range in the injury time to seal all three points for the Red Devils.
"I love the song "attack, attack, attack", but when you lose the ball you have to have stability, and we did not have it against a good team. We were really lucky because we were poor, defensively bad", Mourinho said. But why do Jose Mourinho's men always have to go a goal or two down before they actually start to care?
Mourinho said: "I don't belong to the discussions of contracts".

"I am trying to find a balance where we develop the team and the talented players we have in the second and third phase of attack without losing the balance".
"We can not give the first 25 minutes away, it makes the game more hard".
United have now won three of their last four Premier League games to get back on track after a dismal run piled pressure on Mourinho.
However, the English talent was once again a substitute at Bournemouth on Saturday but proved his point to the manager with an added-time victor to seal a 2-1 victory.More news: Supreme Court ends legal fight over Obama-era net neutrality rules
According to the club's official website, Ander said: "It's like I was saying in some interview before".
