The controvery started after Tyron Mings appeared to have stamped on Zlatan Ibrahimovic's head, the Swede then violently elbowed Mings when the following set-piece was taken. Both Mings and Ibrahimovic remained on the field but Bournemouth were reduced to 10 men after Surman was given a 2nd yellow for a delicate push on Ibrahimovic who seemed to go down quite dramatically.

Bournemouth held their resolve in the 2nd half and frustarted Manchester United. Artur Boruc was a definite star as he saved Zlatan Ibrahimovic's spot-kick in fine fashion further frustrating Manchester United. Paul Pogba has two brilliant chances in extra time but he fluffed both of them to add further salt into Manchester United's wounds.
