Justin Kluivert scored as Bournemouth drew 2-2 with Manchester United on Saturday evening.

Manchester United’s chances of reaching the Champions League spots were slim before kick off and they needed a win to keep their hopes alive.

Erik ten Hag’s side fell behind after 16 minutes when Dominic Solanke made it 1-0 before Bruno Fernandes made it 1-1.

With 36 minutes gone, Kluivert restored Bournemouth’s lead after being allowed to dribble into the box before firing low past Andre Onana.

A Fernandes penalty made it 2-2 in the second half before Kluivert had to leave the pitch injured. Before the end, Bournemouth thought they had a penalty but it was overruled by VAR.

The draw means Manchester United are 7th and ten points off fourth place. Ten Hag can almost certainly forget a Champions League spot.
