Manchester United fought back from a goal down to beat Bournemouth at lunchtime.

Jose Mourinho has hailed Ander Herrera's introduction as "fundamental" in securing a late comeback win for Manchester United at Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Premier League match between Bournemouth and Manchester United will be broadcast on NBCSN.

Alexis Sanchez set up Anthony Martial to net his fifth goal in four games and send the teams in at the break level.

Callum Wilson had given the hosts an 11th minute lead but Anthony Martial levelled before the break, setting the stage for Rashford's late victor.

After appearing to soak up the pressure well in the second half, it took until added time before United claimed the win despite a valiant defensive effort from the hosts, and will point to chances in the first half as to where they can improve going forward. "We were really poor, defensively bad".

Emery discusses how he plans to stop Liverpool
The highly-anticipated match will be played on November 3, Saturday, and it will start at 11:00 pm India time. He said: "Away from home, I think it suits us and there's always goals in this encounter".

"In the first half Bournemouth was the best team by far and in the second half United were the best team by far". I bring Herrera. But then Ashley Young and Luke Shaw start attacking more, Paul gets much more freedom, the team recover balls higher and then we become more offensive in the period after Ander.

"I don't think he's at the point in his career where he should say he's a definite No.9 down the middle".

"But it is fantastic to have this feeling that it doesn't matter the result, we know the game is not over". Supposed defensive wizard Mourinho, meanwhile, has already had 17 goals shipped past his men - only Burnley, Cardiff, Fulham, and Huddersfield have allowed more. Now, Alexis and Lingard are after one good week of work with the team.

"It's a tough one for us", he said. At half time, I thought I was the luckiest manager in the Premier League, to be at 1-1 in a half in which it should be 5-2 or 6-2 [to Bournemouth].

"When he is now much closer to becoming a top player, obviously I would like him to stay".

"We knew it would be a different game in the second half and full credit to them for sticking in the game".
