Man Utd Lucky to beat Bournemouth
Marcus Rashford’s composed finish in the second minute of stoppage time at the end of the second half secured United’s latest recovery from a losing position and their third victory from four in the Premier League, further easing the pressure on their manager.
United remain outside of the Premier League’s top four, but again have a sense of momentum and purpose that had eluded them earlier this season, and 55-year-old Mourinho told BT Sport: “We were a very, very lucky team.
“It was a first half that could, should be, game over, 5-2, 6-2 easily, and in the second half until we scored I had the feeling we were a very unlucky team because we should score three, four, five goals.
“We were really poor, defensively awful. And I do not just look to my defenders, as a team we did not start pressing up, the work we did during the week.
“People watching this game will not believe how hard we worked this week. The first half was a disaster.”
