  • Manchester United miss the chance to move into the top four.
  • Artur Boruc kept out Zlatan Ibrahimovic's second-half penalty.
  • Josh King levelled the contest from the penalty spot after opener from Marcos Rojo.
  • Bournemouth were reduced to 10 men just before half-time after Andy Surman was shown a second yellow card.
  • Tyrone Mings and Zlatan Ibrahimovic escaped trouble after ugly clashes between the two. Mings appeared to stamp on the United's striker's head before Ibrahimovic retaliated with an elbow.

United drop points on a day when they simply couldn't afford to. It's a huge result for Bournemouth but Jose Mourinho's side may have just blown their chances of a top four finish.

Full-time: Manchester United 1-1 Bournemouth

Another miss from Pogba! Inside the six yard area he scuffs another and Boruc can collect ahead of Ibrahimovic. That will probably be that...

Another shocker from Pogba. United lump the ball into the box and the knockdown falls to the Frenchman who connects with nothing but fresh air as he swings his left peg at it.

Five minutes of time added on here. United are completely rudderless at the moment and they are on the brink of dropping more points here.

I've lost count of the number of times Pogba has given the ball away in the last 15 minutes. Another loose one almost frees Bournemouth on the counter but United can regroup.

United are panicking here; loose touches and poor passes galore. Juan Mata is the only one keeping his cool and he is urging his teammates to do likewise.

Pogba again looks for the long ball with Rashford and Fellaini in the box but it is an aimless one that Boruc easily collects.

Marcus Rashford is now on a yellow card after a challenge on Smith. 10 minutes left of a half where United have been truly horrid.

Pogba fires wildly over. Not good enough from United so far and dropping points today could cost them a top four finish.

There no flow to this game at the moment and it is frustrating United. Pogba tries to take matters into his own hands, dragging the ball past Arter who takes out the Frenchman. United free kick.

SAVED! Zlatan Ibrahimovic tries to tuck one into the left hand corner but Boruc is down to push it away. Sums up his day, the Swede has been woeful so far.

PENALTY - Manchester United

Jose Mourinho makes all three changes at once; Marcus Rashford, Marouane Fellaini and Jesse Lingard are on for Rooney, Shaw and Carrick.

United are very sloppy at the moment, lots of misplaced passes and they have no idea how to break down a Bournemouth side who are suddenly looking a lot more organised now,

United break from a Bournemouth corner with Pogba spreading the ball to Valencia who tears down the right flank. He tries to release Ibrahimovic but it is a sloppy ball that is well overhit. United changes incoming.

Ibrahimovic hits a fairly meek effort into the wall and it's out for a corner.

Pogba is invited to shoot from the edge of the box but instead jinks his way past two challenges before winning a free kick just outside the D.

Pogba and Carrick swap passes in the middle of the park before the Frenchman launches a diagonal ball into the box, looking for Ibrahimovic's clever run but Boruc is out to claim.

Boruc denies United again! Pogba receives the ball 30 yards out and tries to bend a brilliant effort into the top corner, but is denied by the Cherries goalkeeper. United have been frustrated by one or two super human goalie performances at Old Trafford this season. Surely it won't happen again...

Mata is fed by Rooney down the byline and manages to force a ball across goal. Valencia is tearing in from the right to meet it, forcing Daniels to clear for a corner. It was a slow start for United in the opening five minutes of this half but they are upping the tempo now.

Mings and Ibrahimovic haven't clashed during the second-half yet. Give it time, though.

And we are back underway for the second half.

Utter chaos at the end of the half. Disgraceful from Tyrone Mings who will surely be facing a retrospective ban for that stamp.

Half-time: Manchester United 1-1 Bournemouth


RED CARD - Andy Surman

Kevin Friend has lost this. In the build up to that last chance, Mings appeared to stamp on Ibrahimovic's head, planting one on the Swede after he had been taken down off the ball. Seeking retribution from the resulting corner, Zlatan plants an elbow straight on him.

Friend has a long, long, long chat with Ibrahimovic and for a moment it looks like he might be the one to walk, but in the end, no action is taken. There is however a second yellow card for Andrew Surman. I'm not sure for what and it's unbelievable neither Mings or Ibrahimovic have been punished.

Boruc denies Rooney! Pogba lofts a wonderful ball over the Bournemouth defence who watches the ball drop out of the air before hitting it on the volley. Boruc is there however.

Josh King and smashes a perfect penalty into the top corner. Game on.

Goal! Manchester United 1-1 Bournemouth Josh King, 38)

Bournemouth have a penalty and there are no complaints from United. Pugh easily cuts inside Jones who goes to ground and clumsily takes him down.

PENALTY - Bournemouth

Luke Shaw overuns the ball slightly and is met with a crunching challenge from Surman. The Bournemouth midfielder picks up a yellow card.

Rooney and Ibrahimovic try to combine with a one-two but neither man has the pace to really breach the Bournemouth defence on this occasion. Might be a job for Marcus Rashford later on.

Bournemouth can't completely clear their corner and United can recycle the ball with Carrick sliding a ball out to Valencia. He plays an easy ball across the face of goal with Rojo, still up from the corner, left free to divert the ball past Boruc. Shambolic again from Bournemouth at the back. Floodgates open?

Goal! Manchester United 1-0 Bournemouth (Marcos Rojo, 22)

Any absurd suggestions that Luke Shaw might hesitate going into hard challenges are debunked as the full-back slides into to cleanly win the ball from Surman. Both men are limping away from that one. Play continues with Martial winning a corner.

Carrick brilliantly intercepts and slides an inch perfect ball through for Martial down the inside left channel. He hammers it towards the near most but Boruc makes the save. It's incredible there hasn't been a goal in this game yet.

Mata is given the freedom to scamper completely unmarked into the box, with Valencia picking him out from the right. He has options waiting inside the box but his ball is forced wide.

Bournemouth are terrified of Martial at the moment. He dances in from the left again past two challenges before forcing the ball across the face of goal. Ibrahimovic is waiting yards out from goal, marked by two defenders and between them they manage to force the ball wide.

Chances at both ends! Another terrible pass out from the back from Mings sees Rooney race through, opting to slide the ball across to Ibrahimovic rather than shoot. For once, the Swede's first touch lets him down and forces him wide. It wasn't the best ball from the captain either. Zlatan tries to force the ball back across to Rooney but Boruc can claim.

Bournemouth are straight on the counter, with a big ball over the top freeing Afobe. Rojo can't keep up with him and the Bournemouth striker is left one on one with de Gea, but the former Arsenal youngster loses his footing at the last moment and falls over completely. Chance is gone.

From that corner, Shaw frees Pogba with a simple upfield ball with Bournemouth's defence all at sea. The Frenchman storms into the box and tries to prod the ball past Boruc, but the goalkeeper manages to tip it wide.

King chases down Jones and sends the United centre-half flying. It looks a clear push, but Kevin Friend waves play on and the former United youngster creeps into the box with Valencia forced to intercept and knock the ball out for a corner.

Mings tries to play a ball out from the back and Valencia pounces, intercepting as he cuts in from the right before sliding it onto Ibrahimovic. The Swede flicks it back out to Valencia who curls a fine cross into the box but Rooney gets his jump all wrong and heads over the bar.

And Bournemouth get us underway at Old Trafford.

Three points for United this afternoon will see them move back into the top four, even if it is just for a few hours.

Bournemouth assistant manager Jason Tindall tells Sky Sports Jack Wilshere was only able to train once this week with the club opting against rushing him back into the first-team this afternoon.

The most significant absence for Bournemouth this afternoon was reported to be in the dugout. Eddie Howe is at Old Trafford today, however, albeit a little worse for wear.

Eddie Howe makes just one change to his side this afternoon with Jack Wilshere dropped to the bench with Benik Afobe stepping in. Despite being passed fit this week, there is no room in the squad for Jordon Ibe.

Jose Mourinho makes four changes to the side that beat Southampton at Wembley last Sunday. Luke Shaw, comes in to start his first Premier League game since October with Marcos Rojo shifting inside to partner Phil Jones at centre-half, after slotting in at left-back last Sunday.

Ander Herrera is given a rest, although he has been named on the bench this afternoon with Michael Carrick, Paul Pogba and Juan Mata the midfield three.

No shocks to see Zlatan Ibrahimovic with Anthony Martial's run in the team continuing.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Jose Mourinho insists Luke Shaw's star today is "not the game of his life," but "a good opportunity" for him to find some confidence to his game again.

Bournemouth team to face Mancheser United: Boruc, Smith, Cook, Mings, Daniels, Surman, Arter, Fraser, Pugh, King, Afobe

Subs: Allsop, Cargill, Smith, Gosling, Ive, Wilshere, Gradel

Manchester United team to face Bournemouth: De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Rojo, Shaw, Carrick, Pogba, Mata, Rooney, Martial, Ibrahimovic

Subs: Romero, Blind, Smalling, Fellaini, Herrera, Lingard, Rashford

BREAKING: Luke Shaw and Wayne Rooney both return to the starting XI. Phil Jones also returns to partner Marcos Rojo at centre-half.

Team news: Manchester United

Phil Jones had been enjoying his best run in the first-team in years before injury struck again in the goalless draw with Hull City at the beginning of the month. He and Marcos Rojo formed a formidable partnership at the end of 2016, with Chris Smalling and Eric Bailly becoming Jose Mourinho's first choice pairing in recent weeks. Will he be tempted to change it up today? Jones is ready if called upon.

I've been training for the last few days and I'm looking forward to coming back.

"I think I've been out for three weeks so, even if I trained two days before the [EFL Cup final] game, which I did, I didn't expect to be involved. It was difficult really and a bit disappointing but these things happen.

Team news: Bournemouth

Bournemouth will be without defender Simon Francis today but Eddie Howe told the press on Friday Jordon Ibe is available for the clash at Old Trafford after recovering from a knee problem.

Francis suffered a hamstring injury during Bournemouth's 2-0 defeat by Manchester City a fortnight ago and missed the Cherries' defeat to West Bromwich Albion last week. Ibe is available for selection after coming through training unscathed.

Team news: Manchester United

Wayne Rooney lifted the EFL Cup last Sunday but didn't manage to get onto the pitch in the end, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic's late winner ensuring Jose Mourinho went for a more conservative approach with his final sub. The skipper is back in contention today with his manager effectively confirming on Friday he will have some role to play.

Since the moment he decided to stay, to help the team and to fight for the team and Manchester United, he is an important player for us. I think by giving you these two little big details, I am telling you all the talk about Everton, for me, is nonsense.

BREAKING: According to reports, Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe will not be at the game at Old Trafford this afternoon due to illness.

A rare Luke Shaw sighting could be expected this afternoon. The left-back has not started a Premier League game for United since October and has not featured at all for the Red Devils since their 4-0 FA Cup fourth round victory over Wigan Athletic in January, with reports suggesting he may have fallen out of favour at Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho insists that isn't the case however and took the opportunity to sing the defender's praises when addressing the press this week.

Because of his age, his physicality, his intensity, his aggressiveness and his ability going forward – he can be the best. But to be the best you need to work - you need to work hard and that's what he's trying to do.

"Luke is working hard trying to improve. He has improved by the physical point of view, that I can say for sure with good dedication, good specific work and, now obviously he needs some opportunities to feel alive to play some minutes on the pitch.

Team news: Manchester United

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is still unavailable due to a hamstring injury. The Armenia international limped off in the victory away in Saint-Etienne 10 days ago. Bastian Schweinsteiger has also picked up a knock but Phil Jones is back in contention having recovered from his foot injury.
