“We didn’t take our chances”- Bournemouth boss bemoans dropped points vs Manchester United

Bournemouth boss says his team didn’t take their chances against Manchester United

Bournemouth were constantly threatening Manchester United during their meeting tonight. The Cherries were in fine form and opened the scoring early by grabbing the lead in the 16th minute.

The team added another before halftime to make it 2-1, but honestly, they could’ve put the game away in the first half. Once again, Erik ten Hag’s defence was too open and his players were too sloppy. Bournemouth kept penetrating and asking questions from Andre Onana.

The Cameroonian conceded two in the first and wasn’t really being challenged a lot in the second half. The Cherries struggled to do anything meaningful in the second half and that made their wasted chances from the first hurt even more.

Even Erik ten Hag was frustrated with his side.

“We didn’t take our chances, we had chances to finish with a better result. All the refereeing decisions were against us today.”

Andoni also added that the refereeing has been very inconsistent which hurts the team. He felt the penalty given to Manchester United was one worth giving. Luckily for the Red Devils, Bruno Fernandes was ready to convert and struck true.

The team might’ve gotten away with a point tonight but their chances of making the top four have never been lower. With only a handful of games left Erik ten Hag doesn’t have enough time to goof around.
