Marcos Rojo is enjoying his best spell in a Manchester United shirt and on Saturday afternoon marked his 54th Premier League appearances with his first goal.
The 26-year-old stabbed the ball past the impressive Artur Boruc to give United the lead against Bournemouth but after the visitors equalised from the penalty spot, Jose Mourinho’s side were unable to find a second.

After looking as though his future may lie away from Old Trafford, the former Estudiantes defender has answered his critics with a prolonged spell of excellent form in central defence.
Having not been included in Edgardo Bauza’s squad for the last World Cup qualifiers, Rojo was recalled this week for the upcoming matches against Chile and Bolivia and is almost certain to start at left back in the Monumental.
