The Red Devils avoided losing consecutive home games in all competitions for the first time since January 2014.

Comments:

League position: 14th Since their promotion in 2015, AFC Bournemouth had now taken 13 points from a possible 87 (29 games) against the 'big six' teams in the Premier League. The Cherries failed in their attempt to equal their longest unbeaten away run in the Premier League (five games). They failed to score for the second time in their last seven Premier League games.
