The slim lead did not last for too long as Manchester United fought back in the 31st minute as Bruno Fernandes scored the equalizer for the Red Devils.


About five minutes later, Manchester United established their dominance in the game when Justin Kluivert made it 2-1 for Bournemouth.

In the second half of the encounter, both sides played more cautiously as they tried to ensure that they didn’t let in more goals. It wasn’t until the 65th minute that United finally had a breakthrough when Bruno Fernandes scored the equalizer from the penalty spot.
