Fernandes scores twice to secure Man United a draw against Bournemouth

By Majesty 2 Min Read

Bournemouth was denied a victory twice by Manchester United, but their winless Premier League record now stands at four games.

The visitors were led by captain Bruno Fernandes in both goals; however, Justin Kluivert handed the Cherries a well-earned lead at halftime after they had fallen behind to an early strike from Dominic Solanke.

In the sixteenth minute, Solanke overcame Willy Kambwala to ensure that Bournemouth was rewarded for their encouraging start with a confident finish low into the corner.

The home team was only even more motivated by that breakthrough, but Fernandes’ equaliser from Alejandro Garnacho’s cut-back punished Bournemouth for their wastefulness.

Five minutes later, a simple ball from Marcos Senesi revealed the ample space between Diogo Dalot and Kambwala, allowing Kluivert to reclaim the lead for the hosts.

when failing to increase their lead, Bournemouth should have been far ahead at the break. However, halfway through the second half, Fernandes equalised once more, this time by converting a penalty awarded for handball when Kobbie Mainoo’s strike bounced onto the unfortunate Adam Smith.

United lost ground to Newcastle United’s 4-0 victory against Tottenham earlier on Saturday, significantly undermining their chances of qualifying for European football. They now sit in eighth position.

Bournemouth, who are still in 12th position, believed they had been given a late penalty, but after a protracted assessment by the video assistant referee (VAR), it was found that Kambwala’s challenge on Christie happened outside the box.
