Manchester United defeated Bournemouth 3-0 at Old Trafford to move level on points with third-placed Newcastle in the Premier League table.
Casemiro’s controlled volley from Christian Eriksen’s free-kick put Erik ten Hag’s side in front midway through the first half before Luke Shaw doubled the advantage early in the second half by finishing a fine team goal.
Shaw’s brilliant pass set up Marcus Rashford for the third.
Ten Hag had made changes, welcoming Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford back to the team while Donny van de Beek started his first Premier League game at home for 19 months – although he was forced off injured before half-time following a strong challenge.
But that did nothing to halt United’s momentum – Alejandro Garnacho coming on to set up the second goal.
It was a thoroughly deserved victory for United, their sixth in succession in all competitions.
Bournemouth remain just two points above the relegation zone.
