But after Marcus Rashford's stoppage-time victor, which gave United a 2-1 victory, Jose Mourinho's team now head into a heavyweight week in the Champions League and Premier League on the back of two straight wins.
Manchester United travelled to Bournemouth on Saturday knowing that a defeat would have left them six points behind their overperforming hosts.

Jose Mourinho was keen to stress that Ander Herrera was the decisive factor in laying the platform for Manchester United's late victor against AFC Bournemouth over the weekend.
Allegri gave Douglas Costa his second start this season up front alongside Dybala and Ronaldo, who was presented with a special jersey before the match after last week becoming the first player to break the 400-goal mark in Europe's top five leagues.
"The good thing is the team has the face of a fantastic character and the heart that the game is not over and we go until the end".
