Manchester United’s Champions League aspirations took a further hit as Bruno Fernandes scored twice to make it 2-2 against Bournemouth, a draw that Erik ten Hag’s team scarcely merited.


United had let in at least 28 shots in their previous three games; although they weren’t nearly as vulnerable at the Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth will surely be disappointed not to have won both Premier League meetings against United.


Dominic Solanke put the Cherries ahead after capitalizing on Willy Kambwala’s mistake to put the home team in the lead in the first half, but Fernandes scored an ill-advised goal with a volley from close range.

United were once again level when Fernandes converted a penalty following Adam Smith’s terrible handball, but Bournemouth regained their advantage through Justin Kluivert, who took advantage of even more dubious United defending.


After that, Bournemouth had a penalty saved in stoppage time after a foul by Kambwala on Ryan Christie was reviewed and found to have happened just outside the area, even though the contact had carried into the box.



Was it fair to award Bournemouth a penalty?

A penalty kick must be awarded if, per the rules of the game set down by the International Federation of Association Football (IFAB), “a defender starts holding an attacker outside the penalty area and continues holding inside the penalty area.”


United had another stroke of luck as they finished the game allowing just 20 shots while having an expected goals-from-open-play total of only 0.39.


With six games remaining, they are now 10 points off of the Champions League spots and in seventh position after dropping this point.

The costly consequences of contentious judgments

United faced 28 efforts on goal in the 2-2 draw against Liverpool, but Kambwala was praised for his performance despite being substituted for Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof, and Jonny Evans.


On a disappointing evening for the 19-year-old, who was making only his third Premier League appearance, he was outmuscled by Solanke and then lost his balance as the striker confidently finished the game past Andre Onana.


Updates on the squad

Bournemouth substituted Dango Ouattara, Luis Sinisterra, and Marcos Senesi for Antoine Semenyo, Lloyd Kelly, and Marcus Tavernier, respectively, in their loss against Luton.

Marcus Rashford started for Manchester United after overcoming a knock, while the team’s starting eleven remained unaltered from their stalemate with Liverpool.

Alejandro Garnacho should have taken the brunt of the criticism after giving the ball to Bournemouth. After liking social media posts criticizing the substitution, the winger may find himself in a difficult confrontation with Ten Hag. The substitution happened at halftime. In subsequent updates, he decided he didn’t like them.


Milos Kerkez and Luis Sinisterra had Bournemouth within striking distance of increasing their lead, but a shot from Fernandes leveled the scores.


However, Bournemouth’s second goal came four minutes later, and it was all Kambwala’s fault. He gave Diogo Dalot too much room to run into, and Kluivert pounced, blasting the ball past Onana at the near post.


Even though United’s defenders were idly watching, Kerkez wasted two excellent opportunities in the first half, and Onana had an unmarked chance to stop Kluivert from scoring.


The only real danger for United came from Fernandes, who had already gone close in first-half stoppage time; he capitalized on an opportunity to score a second goal after Smith was caught offside by a deflection from Kobbie Mainoo.


It appeared like United’s efforts to limit Bournemouth’s threat in the second half were for naught in the dying moments of regulation time as Kambwala blocked Christie’s shot.
