    Gunn with a huge save off his face from Hazard.

    Atsu is finding so much space on the right. His pace is destroying Lindeloff and Valencia is gonna be no help at all.

    This feels like the last 3 games with a touch less finish.

    United looking dangerous on attack, willing to commit numbers forward and attacking well. On defense they look shaky.

    Morata is so bad. I wouldn't be unhappy if he never plays another game for Chelsea at this point.

    Everything he was supposedly good at while at Real Madrid which was touted in the media and on this board is non-existent here. Guy is useless on the pitch.

    Don't think he was hyped on this board.
    Everyone said he would flop IIRC. And that the price was horrible.

    Everyone said he would flop as a goal scorer, the narrative was that he was really good at passing and link up plays, but wouldn't be able to ever score enough to justify the fee as a striker. He's completely lost on the pitch and horrible at playing within the team.

    Eden Hazard has yet to score this season with Morata on the pitch.

    Yeah, I should've just listed to everyone, instead of being optimistic.

    Is it fair to say he's worse than Torres?

    Hardly surprising, Hazard is at his best when he can play off of someone to create space, and Morata is utterly useless at this. He never goes to the right spot, he can't receive passes properly, he can't hold up the ball and return them properly, etc.

    It’s hilarious that the two big strikers that moved in that window were Lukaku and Morata and this post could be used to describe either of them.

    Lascelles' tackle wasn't much different than Bailly's. Only a yellow this time though. Might need Lukaku in the 2nd half, Rashford is getting bullied by Lascelles.

    He was pretty hyped on here. I begged the question years ago who was more overrated Koke or Morata. I guess I found out my answer.

    United dominating in possession, had a couple good chances, but also gave up a couple really good chances.

    This game could easily be anything from 2 or 3 nil for United to 2 or 3 nil the other way.

    Hopefully he gets bullied less in the second half with Lascelles on the yellow and since he should have earned at least 2 other fouls before that.

    Seems to be an uneventful game in Bournemouth.

    Bournemouth has to be one of the most eventful teams to watch in the bpl.

    Well he can, but he's definitely known for his defensive lapses and it's a deserved reputation.

    That's a pretty joke yellow for Lindeloff.

    Arnautovic is better than Morata and donkey Lukaku

    Has Valencia even touched the ball this half?

    Absolutely everything is down United's left hand side.
