Manchester United saw their recent run of results snap as Bournemouth handed them a 1-0 defeat, with Joshua King scoring the only goal of the game.
In a match that was affected by inclement weather, chances came few and far between. Manchester United posed the greater threat all throughout. But, it was Bournemouth who struck against the run of play at the stroke of half-time, with Joshua King scoring from point-blank range.
The visitors were unable to find a way past a stubborn Bournemouth defence in the second half, as they fell to their fourth Premier League defeat of the season. And, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer bore the brunt of Manchester United fans in the aftermath of the defeat.
At what time to do we accept that maybe Ole isn’t fit for the job?
Those above him are equally responsible for the disastrous results but 13 points from 11 games?
We all want to be positive but that’s simply not good enough.

I don’t want to be a doom-monger regarding Manchester United and I want to see Ole succeed…but the fact is they’re 7 points behind where they were at this stage last season.
Their worst start after 11 games in 33 years…🙈
Bournemouth are level with Arsenal in 6th 👏👏

Bournemouth are ahead of us, they hadn’t scored in nearly 350 mins. 13 points from 11 games, defend Ole all you want, we are worse than we have ever been since 2013. Disgraceful

Ole is at the wheelbarrow

If Ole comes out and blames the wind I swear!

Ole is so incompetent I wouldn’t be surprised if he gave lingard his shopping list

Bournemouth restore Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘s Manchester United back to factory settings. #BOUMUN

Solskjær sat back in his chair looking dejected and taking ages to make any changes. You can’t demand energy/urgency from your team when you’re offering zero yourself.
Pep/Klopp never rest, and neither do their teams.

Andreas Pereira was a player that perhaps, exemplified the listlessness of Manchester United and fans duly chastised the midfielder.
Brilliant ball from Pereira. Not his fault the pitch is this short or martial doesn’t have that much pace. Definitely NOT his fault. #BOUMUN

Imagine if we had a proper playmaker today. Andreas Pereira has been in so many good positions to put our forwards through on goal and his passing has been horrific. 💩

If Andreas Pereira wasn’t from Brazil, he would be selling Lemonade’s in Hawaii.

Andreas Pereira hasn’t even outdone Tom Cleverley’s legacy at utd

Meanwhile, fans made sure to laud Daniel James, who was the only player who looked likely to make a difference.
Dan James unbelievable talent, will be a world class player.
