Video: Manchester United 1 – 1 AFC Bournemouth [EPL Highlights]
Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw by 10-man Bournemouth in a controversial clash that saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic miss a penalty and land himself in hot water after elbowing Tyrone Mings.
An incredibly open start to the game saw the hosts go ahead on 23 minutes when Marco Rojo scored his first Premier League goal for the club, diverting Antonio Valencia’s cross-shot past Artur Boruc.
Bournemouth levelled it up just five minutes before the break, however, Eddie Howe’s side equalising from the penalty spot through Joshua King after Phil Jones had brought down Marc Pugh.
The game was heading into the interval when huge controversy broke out, Mings stamping on Ibrahimovic who retaliated minutes later by elbowing the defender. Both incidents were seemingly missed by referee Kevin Friend who took no action against either player, although he did speak at length to Ibrahimovic and captain Wayne Rooney.
