Wayne Rooney: Man Utd failure to take chances led to Bournemouth draw

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney said his side had been left frustrated after they were held 1-1 by out-of-form Bournemouth at Old Trafford on Saturday.

United had 20 shots in the game, seven on target, and although Marcos Rojo opening the scoring they were pegged back when Josh King struck from the penalty spot shortly before the break.

And they missed a great chance to win the game in the second half when Zlatan Ibrahimovic saw his penalty stopped by Artur Boruc.

Rooney told Sky Sports: "Yes, it is two points dropped. I think we played really well in the first half, had chances that we didn't take and then Bournemouth got the equaliser.

"In the second half we dominated the game again but couldn't get the goal.

"But we have to keep going, keep fighting and try to put it right in our next league game.

"We did create a lot of chances -- the keeper made some good saves, but with the chances we had we have to score more goals."

An exciting first half had ended in controversy when Tyrone Mings slid in on Rooney and then stamped on Ibrahimovic, who elbowed the defender in the face at a corner seconds later.

Both avoided red cards from referee Kevin Friend, but instead a second yellow card was shown to Bournemouth's Andrew Surman -- who had already been booked -- for what appeared to be a shove in the middle of a melee.

Friend belatedly realised that Surman had already been booked and showed him a red card, but there was no further punishment for either Ibrahimovic -- already in the book for dissent after the penalty -- or Mings.

Rooney said: "I don't think he [the referee] has seen Mings stamp on Zlatan's head -- I was right there. It's wrong.

"Everyone likes to go in for tackle in the game but to try and stamp on a player's head is wrong -- there's no place for it. I'm sure there will be punishment."
