Mourinho era starts with United victory

Jose Mourinho’s first Premier League game as manager of Manchester United ended in a comfortable victory away to Bournemouth.
Juan Mata scored the first league goal of the new era in the 40th minute following an error by Bournemouth’s captain Simon Francis and Wayne Rooney added a second just before the hour.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who headed the winning goal in last weekend’s Community Shield game against champions Leicester City, then marked his league debut by scoring with a low drive from 25 metres.

United, without world record signing Paul Pogba, who was suspended, were denied a clean sheet soon afterwards when defender Adam Smith beat David de Gea.
