But right on the stroke of half-time Josh King was given time and space in the box as he turned to slam home Bournemouth's first to make it 1-0.

United showed more intent at the start of the second as Pereira brought out the best from Cherries keeper Aaron Ramsdale in the 56th minute.

Harry Wilson should have made it 2-0 but his well angled shot was saved by De Gea and the resulting corner was headed just wide.

Mason Greenwood hit the near post and Scott McTominay also pulled one from range and Ramsdale was equal to the task.

Bournemouth stood firm at the end of 90 minutes and gathered all three points to move ahead United on the Premier League table.
