Manchester United crumbled to a humiliating 3-0 defeat against Bournemouth at Old Trafford to leave manager Erik ten Hag under mounting pressure.

Ten Hag's side came into the game hoping to build on Wednesday's 2-1 win over Chelsea but fell behind to Dominic Solanke's fifth-minute opener before capitulating in the second half.

Andoni Iraola's in-form side extended their lead through substitute Philip Billing's header and Manchester United's afternoon got even worse when Marcos Senesi nodded in the third from a corner.

Manchester United's shambolic defensive display was compounded by a limp effort in attack as they registered only three shots on target, with the home fans loudly booing their seventh Premier League defeat of the season at the final whistle.

The loss sees United lose further ground on the top four, while Bournemouth celebrate a historic win - their fourth in five games and first ever at Old Trafford - which moves them up to 13th in the Premier League table, 10 points clear of the drop zone.
