Follow all the action as it happens! Live Updates 70 mins: For the millionth time today, Wan-Bissaka times his sliding challenge to perfection on Fraser but the right-back has had a difficult afternoon. Time running out for United to find a leveller. SUBS 67 mins: Solskjaer finally turns to his bench, sending on Jesse Lingard for Pereira. He hasn't scored since December. YELLOW CARD 66 mins: The yellows are coming left, right and centre now. Young pulls back Wilson on the edge of the box and is the latest to go into the book - he'll miss the next match through suspension. Free-kick in a dangerous position, but Wilson curls wide. Advertisement YELLOW CARD 64 mins: Lindelof scythes down Wilson from behind and now he goes into the book. 63 mins: Brave goalkeeping from De Gea as he blocks King's effort and on the follow-up, Harry Wilson goes down under the challenge from McTominay. United survive, but for how long? YELLOW CARD 62 mins: Fraser goes through James with a late challenge and earns himself a booking. Advertisement 59 mins: Looks like Bournemouth have taken their foot off the gas now after a bright start to the half. That could allow United to find an equaliser from somewhere if they begin to settle into a defensive shape. 58 mins: Pereira has a decent go at goal from the edge of the box, but Ramsdale gets down to the corner. VAR The Premier League have explained why VAR did not intervene and award a penalty in the first half... Advertisement YELLOW CARD 55 mins: Cook lunges in with a very late tackle on Rashford and catches the forward from behind. It's only yellow - but there were calls for the card to be red there. A tough one for the referee. 54 mins: Again, a fairly easy pass is on for Pereira and he puts way too much swazz on it. Martial doesn't even bother chasing it, and why should he if the service is that bad? 51 mins: More danger for the visitors, who haven't got going since the interval. Wilson gets inside Wan-Bissaka and tries to play in King, but the pass is just too heavy. Advertisement 48 mins: Fraser effort saved! It's amazing what a goal can do to a team's confidence. Bournemouth are starting to put together some nice moves and Smith finds Fraser alone at the far post with a lovely ball, but the Scot's effort is straight at De Gea. KICK OFF KICK-OFF | SECOND HALF We're back underway at the Vitality Stadium. A big performance required from United. Looking at the United bench, it's possible we may see Jesse Lingard and Mason Greenwood in the not-too-distant future. It hasn't worked out for Pereira today while Fred is on a booking. Perhaps a switch to a 4-2-3-1 from a 4-3-3 may give United some more creativity going forward.

A lovely goal and finally, a goal for Bournemouth after three games without scoring! Photo: AFP GOAL! GOAL! | Bournemouth 1-0 Manchester United | Joshua King 45' Advertisement 44 mins: Since the gloves came off in Fred vs Lerma, it's all got a bit petty and scrappy on the ball. Not much quality in this first half. VAR Another look at that Martial penalty incident. The fall was theatrical, but the contact from Lerma came BEFORE he touched the ball. Still, VAR decided there was no wrongdoing... Photo: Getty/Manchester United FC Next Can't see the Bournemouth vs Man Utd LIVE: Premier League 2019/20 blog? Click here for the desktop version.
