Man Utd Fans Suffer Reality Check After Initial Excitement Of Starting XI

Manchester Untied travelled to Bournemouth tonight as they tried to seal their hold on second-place, and definitively secure Champions League football for next season.

With a trip to Wembley on the cards this weekend for an FA Cup semi-final with Tottenham, Jose Mourinho adopted for a few changes to his starting XI.

Sunday's defeat to West Bromwich Albion no doubt played a part in this decision also.

One decision that had United fans talking was the placing of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in United's front three.

With Lukaku being saved for that cup tie, Jesse Lingard was the other man in that attacking trio. Although there was no immediate breakthrough, United fans commended the intention of the Portuguese, if nothing else.

That being said, even with the desired personnel in place, many were left dispirited with the nature of how it panned out.

Some smart play on the edge of the Bournemouth box would give United a 1-0 lead; Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard and Chris Smalling working together well.
