Alexis Sanchez starts for Manchester United at Bournemouth, but Romelu Lukaku absent

And Ander Herrera has warned the Old Lady, and next weekend's opponents Manchester City, that they will not be easy to beat.

"We were defensively bad".

"As games are getting tougher and tougher they're closer than ever, and it's often coming down to fine margins, who can give that added burst in the last five minutes".

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.

Chris Smalling has acknowledged Manchester United must start making quicker starts to games but the defender believes their latest last-gasp win provides further evidence of a team spirit reminiscent of the Alex Ferguson era.

Asked if there was an echo of the Alex Ferguson era in the never-say-die ethos of recent second halves, Smalling said: 'Yeah, we're showing that attitude - never giving in.

"It was one of the best first-half performances I've seen us have in the Premier League since being promoted".

However, this project was started by PM Modi five years ago, when he was a Chief Minister of Gujarat on 31st October 2013. The "Statue of Unity" is double the size of the Statue of Liberty in NY standing 240 metres high.

Bournemouth however didn't have to wait too long after to take a deserved lead, as an unmarked Wilson slotted home Stanislas' cross for his sixth league goal of the season after 11 minutes.

The forward looked a threat every time he received the ball, with his pace, dribbling ability, and composure in the vital moment helping the visitors earn a point. "We need to work on that because normally we don't concede many and we win the game". We pressed higher, more intensity and intention. The team performed much better.

"But then we managed to score in [stoppage] time and we got the points we lost against Chelsea". My assistants were saying this is the best warm-up of the season.

"In that situation, after nearly going 1-0 down after a couple of minutes, that triggered instability in the team".

The Portuguese tactician has been under intense criticism since the start of the ongoing campaign, not just due to his team's poor results, but also due to the boring and inconsistent manner in which his players have functioned on the pitch. With Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson being incredibly risky on the attack this season, Bournemouth has the most goals scored so far this year outside of the Top 4.

"We were ready for everything, I can't understand the mentality that brings me more white hair!"
