Marcus Rashford helps Manchester United make 2-1 comeback against Bournemouth

Jose Mourinho admitted he was the "luckiest manager in the Premier League" as Manchester United recovered from a disastrous defensive display to beat Bournemouth 2-1 yesterday.

But the England global spurned golden chances elsewhere in the game, failing to bury a close-range effort on the goal-line and then losing out to Nathan Ake in a one-on-one foot race.

"I'm trying to find a balance where we develop the team in the second and first phase of attack and we develop the talented players that we have without losing the balance".

United remain outside of the Premier League's top four but again have a sense of momentum and goal that had eluded them earlier this season, and after his job was reportedly put a risk, the 55-year-old Mourinho told BT Sport: "We were a very, very lucky team".

Rashford had already missed a golden opportunity on the rebound when Ashley Young's free-kick hit the crossbar, but he came up trumps for Jose Mourinho's men at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday. In just 11 games so far, the 26-year-old has already plundered six goals as well as produced five assists, making him one of the most productive attackers in the league this term.

"He's a player of balance, he's not an incredible creator, not an incredible scorer, he has a little bit of everything but I think he's a player of balance, knowledge, his tactical knowledge is big, he understands what I want, what the team needs". "A tough time, I thought I was the luckiest manager in the Premier League".

The Chilean forward would go on to play 56 minutes in his new position before being moved to the wing.

Former Manchester United defender Ferdinand believes Rashford warrants a regular starting spot in the Red Devils team to continue his development at Old Trafford.

"When you are top four you can look up, see the distance, look to the fixtures, to the calendar, you can look to the situation at the moment, injuries, suspension, form and then you can feel it". Lukaku's goalscoring record is up there, it's fantastic, he scores goals. "The team performed much better".

'You need to be able to complement other players in the team.

United have won those two games and are now unbeaten in their last four in the Premier League.
