Are Man Utd suddenly in the title race? Winners, losers and ratings as Ten Hag's in-form side beat Bournemouth
Manchester United moved level on points with third-placed Newcastle in the Premier League table on Tuesday after a comfortable 3-0 win over Bournemouth at Old Trafford.
It's now six wins in a row for the Red Devils and manager Erik ten Hag, who can seemingly do no wrong at the moment. The Dutchman brought in outcasts such as Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Donny van de Beek against the Cherries and still saw his team cruise to victory.
Summer signing Casemiro brilliantly volleyed the hosts in front from a gorgeous Christian Eriksen cross, before they lost Van de Beek to injury before the half-time whistle.
Yet even that was no problem for Ten Hag. The United manager replaced the Dutchman with Alejandro Garnacho and saw the youngster grab his first Premier League assist within minutes of his arrival.
Luke Shaw instigated the move from the left-back but kept on running so he was in the right place at the right time to fire home Garnacho's cross to make it 2-0. Shaw then played a role in United's third, finding Bruno Fernandes who in turn squared for Marcus Rashford to grab his fourth goal in as many games since the World Cup.
The win continues United's strong form and sees them close to within a point of Manchester City in second place. Next up for Ten Hag's side in the Premier League is a visit from Pep Guardiola's champions.
