Ex-Arsenal man blasts two Manchester United stars

Bournemouth’s first goal against Manchester United on Saturday night was a well-crafted one, and to be honest, some credit deserves to go to Stanislas for being so calm in front of goal.

However, there’s been some anger amongst certain people over the nature of the goal, and they have singled out some United players for criticism.

Stanislas nutmegged Harry Maguire, before finishing through De Gea’s near post, and former Arsenal star Martin Keown had some things to say about it.

Speaking to BBC Match Of The Day, Keown said: “In fairness, they’ve had five clean sheets in the last six games.

“But this has happened to most players and he will be embarrassed.

“I would say if that happened to me, I think David Seaman would be getting a bit of a rollicking because the ‘keeper hasn’t really helped him.

“It’s a brilliant piece of skill there and imagination from Stanislas but the ‘keeper I feel should do a bit better and, of course, Harry Maguire will be unhappy as well.”

We did win the match convincingly, but the frailties at United’s back were exposed by the visitors.

There have been calls for Olé Gunnar Solskjaer to go into the market for another centre back, and perhaps the calls are not out of place.
