Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes that the Red Devils were very lucky to record a win in their away league meeting with Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.

Mourinho made this known while he was giving his post-match reaction at the end of the Matchweek 11 game at the Vitality Stadium.

According to the Portuguese tactician, his side could have been 6-2 down at halftime against the Cherries.

Manchester United recovered from a bad start to score a late goal and record a morale-boosting victory away from home.

The hosts took an early lead in the 11th minute through the in-form Callum Wilson off an assist from Junior Stanislas.

It was his third league goal in two games following his brace in last weekend’s 3-0 victory over Fulham at the Craven Cottage.

It was his 50th goal in the colours of Bournemouth.

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial dragged his side level in the 35th minute.

The French international profited off a cutback from Chilean international star Alexis Sanchez for his fifth league goal in the last four games.

Manchester United won the game in the second minute of added time courtesy substitute Marcus Rashford after good work from France World Cup winner Paul Pogba.
