Manchester United did not spend the month of November very well! United played three matches in the English Premier League and won all three. The team did not score a single goal in those three matches. United coach Erik ten Haag was named coach of the month and defender Harry Maguire was named player of the month.

United's fortunes changed as the months passed. As December approaches, English football's most successful team looks old. The side, who started December with a loss to Newcastle, lost at home to Bournemouth today. Bournemouth stunned Old Trafford with a 3-0 win. This is the second defeat for Ten Haag's side in three league matches this month. And if the pressure increases on the Dutch coach.

What quality United have played against in November, one might ask. United beat Everton 3-0 after 1-0 defeats to Fulham and Luton last month.

United started that December with a 1-0 defeat at Newcastle. However, after defeating Chelsea 2-1 at home, United signaled a turnaround. But today Old Trafford to Bournemouth is the Red Devils.

Bournemouth, who had never won at Old Trafford before, took the lead after 5 minutes. Lewis Cook gets the ball through Bruno Fernandes. Dominic Solanki gave Bournemouth the lead from his cross. The English forward had a chance to double the lead in the first half. His shot bounced off the post.

68 to 73—Bournemouth scored the second and third goals within five minutes. Philip Billing scored in the 68th minute and Marcos Senesi in the 73rd minute. Both headed goals from Marcus Tavernier's cross. Bournemouth celebrated a fourth goal in added time, but Dongo Ouattara's goal was ruled out for handball.

United had a chance to reach the top five in the points table if they won this match. At the end of 16 matches, the team was down to six with 27 points. United's ninth loss in the league this season is 19 points for Bournemouth. The team has reached the 13th position.
