Manchester United left it late on Saturday night, but eventually managed to get all 3 points against Bournemouth in the Premier League.

The Red Devils were trailing from an early Wilson strike, but a spirited second half effort saw them turn things around in typical United style.

Anthony Martial found the back of the net yet again, scoring for the fourth Premier League game in a row in the process. The away side kept the pressure coming, but it wasn’t until added time at the end of 90 minutes that they managed to find a winner.

Jose Mourinho’s substitution worked wonders, as Marcus Rashford was sent off the bench to beat Begovic, and that is exactly what he did.

The striker scored his second injury-time winner for the club last night, the first one coming against Hull City back in September 2016.

Not many players in the Premier League era have scored not one, but two winning goals for the Red Devils in the dying minutes, and hence, the Englishman finds himself in elite company after yesterday’s feat.

The two players to have managed to do this in the past are Robin van Persie and Paul Scholes, names that won over the hearts of every United faithful, and there is no denying that Rashford is certainly on his way to do the same.

Manchester United are currently only three points behind Arsenal, and will be looking to close that gap in the coming weeks, but a trip to Manchester City up next shall be a daunting challenge to face.
