Alexis Sanchez starts for Manchester United at Bournemouth, but Romelu Lukaku absent

Alexis Sanchez starts for Manchester United at Bournemouth, but Romelu Lukaku absent

Ander Herrera was delighted with Manchester United's second-half performance in Saturday's 2-1 win at Bournemouth but conceded Jose Mourinho's men are making life hard for themselves.

United had conceded to an early goal from Callum Wilson before Anthony Martial equalised.

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.

"I felt that the team needed a player like Ander to give us balance in that position, to give us more pressure, recover the ball faster and also to protect Ashley Young, so I think I was happy with that change. I said at half-time I was the luckiest manager in the Premier League in a half when it should be like 5 or 6-2, we were really lucky", began an irate Mourinho.

Smalling said that he and his teammates were much improved after the interval, and that gives them the belief that can get something at the Allianz Stadium.

Despite going into the game with a new wave of confidence following their recent performances against Chelsea and Everton, Manchester United's defence was all at sea during today's game against Bournemouth.

After yet another frustrating start to the game, Manchester United once again crawled their way back, sealing all three points in the dying embers of the game.

Mourinho will know, however, there must be much more to come if they are to revive their challenge for a top four place.

However, Jose Mourinho has explained the main reason for Lukaku not being in the squad for United's game on the South Coast.

"He needs these couple of days".

Sanchez last started a match for United in the 0-0 draw with Valencia in the Champions League a month ago.

Sanchez got the nod ahead of Rashford, a starter against Everton, but the Chile global had little chance to shine during the opening stages when Bournemouth could have sealed the points.

David De Gea is refusing to sign a new contract at Manchester United because of Alexis Sanchez.

Martial has netted five goals in his last five games and is another player said to be looking for some kind of parity with Sanchez, who he ha been outperforming this season. We knew the second half was going to be a different game.
