King ends Manchester United revival

Manchester United’s revival came to a disappointing end as Bournemouth forward Joshua King’s goal on the stroke of halftime earned a 1-0 victory on a blustery south coast on Saturday.

King volleyed in from close range as Bournemouth scored their first Premier League goal for more than a month.

United had won three successive away games in all competitions but despite starting strongly against Bournemouth they offered little attacking threat in a scrappy game.

They did raise the tempo in the closing stages with Mason Greenwood hitting the post with a volley immediately after coming on as a substitute.

Victory lifted Bournemouth above United into sixth place with 16 points from 11 games ahead of Saturday’s later kickoffs, while United remain on 13 points.
