First team

In numbers: Best stats from United win


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Joshua King’s finely-taken goal earned AFC Bournemouth a memorable victory against Manchester United at Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

The Norway international scored on the stroke of half-time as Eddie Howe’s team lowered the colours of the 20-time top-flight champions.

King, who started his career in England at Old Trafford as a 16-year-old, was also on target when the Cherries beat the Red Devils in their maiden season in the Premier League in December 2015.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team arrived in Dorset on the back of three successive wins and unbeaten against the Cherries in seven games.

But the impressive run came to an end after King netted the goal to sink his countryman’s team, the 27-year-old’s third in the Premier League this season.

Here are some of the best stats from the game. 

45 – Joshua King scored the 45th Premier League goal of his career – the second-highest total by a Norwegian player in the competition’s history after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who plundered 91.

150 – Steve Cook captained the Cherries to victory over the Red Devils on his 150th appearance in the Premier League.

29 – Nathan Ake made 29 passes with a passing accuracy of 89.7 per cent, the highest in the Cherries team.

4 – Diego Rico supplied four crosses, the most in the Cherries team.

49 – Steve Cook has featured in 49 of the Cherries’ 51 wins in the Premier League.

36 – Aaron Ramsdale kept a third successive clean sheet as the Cherries made it 36 since winning promotion to the Premier League.

9 – Steve Cook made nine clearances for the Cherries, four more than Nathan Ake and Philip Billing who both had the second-highest number in the game with five.

7 – Two wins and a draw have earned the Cherries seven points against Manchester United in the Premier League, their second-best tally against the big six (Chelsea 9, Arsenal 4, Liverpool 4, Tottenham 4, Manchester City 0).

16 – The Cherries have taken 16 points from their first 11 games in the Premier League – twice as many as their first season in the top flight, four more than 2016/17, six more than 2017/18 and four fewer than last season.

351 – The Cherries have not conceded a goal for 351 minutes with David Luiz scoring a ninth-minute opener against them for Arsenal last month.

11 – For the second season in succession, the Cherries are above seven former English champions in the Premier League table after 11 games – Manchester United (20 titles), Everton (7), Aston Villa (7), Newcastle (4), Wolves (3), Burnley (2), Tottenham (2).
