Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s failure from the spot could be compounded by a spell on the sidelines after 10-man Bournemouth secured a memorable 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

Ugly scenes and poor officiating overshadowed a thrilling lunchtime encounter as Marcos Rojo’s first ever Premier League goal was cancelled out by Josh King’s penalty as the first half ended chaotically.

Andrew Surman received the first red card of his career – awarded once blundering referee Kevin Friend realised he had booked the Bournemouth captain twice – having reacted angrily to Ibrahimovic’s elbow on Tyrone Mings, who moments earlier stamped – inadvertently or otherwise – on the United striker.

United boss Jose Mourinho: “Zlatan is a big man, like I am. Too many years in football. We are not the kind of generation that goes to the media and cries about what happened. We are from that generation of street football and football for big guys. So what happens, happens. Game over. What counts is the result and nothing else matters for us.”

With an exciting contest finely poised at 1-1 just before the break, a series of flashpoints culminated in Surman’s stoppage-time dismissal. Both Mings and Ibrahimovic could have been dismissed – the former for a stamp on the Swede’s head which only he can determine the intent of, and the striker for a subsequent elbow, seemingly retaliatory. Yet Surman was the only one punished for then shoving Ibrahimovic, and even then it took referee Friend a long time to realise it was the second time he had brandished the yellow card at him.

Star man – Artur Boruc

Artur Boruc. The Pole was kept busy from the start as he made an early one-on-one save from Paul Pogba and made further stops from Anthony Martial and Ibrahimovic. He was already the leading contender for the man-of-the-match award when he guessed the right way to keep out the Swede’s 71st-minute penalty in front of the Stretford End.
