This week is the acid test of José Mourinho's Manchester United revival

This week is the acid test of José Mourinho's Manchester United revival

Winger Ryan Fraser insists Bournemouth will continue to attack the Premier League's leading powers in the coming weeks.

Despite the home side dominating the early exchanges, United equalised ten minutes before half-time when Anthony Martial netted his fifth league goal of the season following a smart cut-back from Alexis Sanchez, sending both sides into the interval on level terms.

"Because the approach was much more defensive and with a much more defensive approach you can hide better your weaknesses", said Mourinho. Following a awful half-hour, the Frenchman grew into the game, linking up with Luke Shaw on the flank. "I think a lot of the aspects of our game were really good, especially during the opening period".

And Rashford pinpointed the same deficiencies, adding: "We have to improve on starting the games".

"I think by the end of December, which is the end of the first half of the Premier League, I think we are not going to be in the position we are now". Former Chelsea player was initially at Bournemouth on loan and after this display, the club from Dean Court will be certain their move for Ake was a wise one.

"It is what we call a game of two halves".

Juventus will look to keep their unbeaten streak in Serie A against the Sardinians in Turin four days before taking on Jose Mourinho's United in the Allianz Stadium.

Therefore, Martial's performances could certainly shape United's fate next week, with the Red Devils due to play Juventus on Wednesday, which will be followed by the Manchester derby on Sunday.

Marcus Rashford scored a dramatic injury-time victor as Manchester United came from behind to beat in-form Bournemouth.

United were run ragged by Eddie Howe's men in the first half who deserved to be in a handsome lead come the end of the first half.

The Turin outfit have made a near flawless start to the season in all competitions, dropping points only in a 1-1 draw with Genoa.

Mourinho has spent more than £60 million on centre-backs since taking over in 2016 but Smalling was still trusted to play almost 50 games last season and the 28-year-old has been a regular in the team again this term. There's so many good things to come from the game.
