Bournemouth vs Manchester United: Score, Goals, Highlights From Premier League


Manchester United start their 2016-17 Premier League campaign under Jose Mourinho with a convincing 3-1 victory over AFC Bournemouth on Sunday at the Vitality Stadium.

After a cagey start from both sides, United broke the deadlock just before halftime through Juan Mata. The Spaniard pounced on a double error from Simon Francis to tap home from close range.

Twitter reacts to Mata’s goal:

Wayne Rooney doubled the lead for Manchester United after the break. Anthony Martial’s miscued volley fell into the path of Rooney; the United skipper did brilliantly to guide the ball past Boruc with a finely timed header.

Only Alan Shearer and Frank Lampard (8) have scored more opening day Premier League goals, per Opta, than Wayne Rooney (7).

Soon after, new signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored on his Premier League debut with a cracking effort from 25 yards out to put the game beyond doubt.
