AFC Bournemouth 1-0 Manchester United

Norwegian ends Cherries' six-hour wait for a goal to hand Red Devils a fourth defeat of the season

Joshua King's strike ended AFC Bournemouth's six-hour wait for a goal and helped them beat Manchester United 1-0 at Vitality Stadium.

United twice went close to opening the scoring in a bright start in wet and windy conditions. Andreas Pereira fired over while Daniel James' long-range effort went narrowly wide.

AFC Bournemouth fought back and took the lead on the stroke of half-time. Adam Smith crossed for King, who, against his former side, flicked over Aaron Wan-Bissaka and volleyed beyond David De Gea.

The home side had more opportunities to double their advantage after the break as Callum Wilson forced De Gea into a fine save on 75 minutes.

A first victory in five matches moves AFC Bournemouth up to sixth on 16 points, above Man Utd in eighth with 13 points.
