dismal 2-2 draw against on Saturday evening was the latest blow in hopes of sneaking a spot this season. Sack talk will naturally intensify after another underwhelming performance, in which United were fortunate to avoid defeat at the Vitality Stadium.

Some of Ten Hag's players were visibly poor, while others didn't do enough to positively impact what was a must-win fixture on the south coast.

The Dutchman walked out of his post-match press conference as pressure seemingly reached boiling point, but he isn't solely at fault. Express Sport pinpoints four players who let the Dutchman down against Bournemouth.

Andre Onana

Andre Onana has been one of United's better players since the turn of 2024, although the bar has remained low.

The Red Devils goalkeeper has been made to work for his salary, with only Luton Town facing more shots in the Premier League this season.

But, while Ten Hag's outfield players were at fault for allowing time and space, Onana should've done better for both of Bournemouth's goals this weekend.

Dominic Solanke's low strike wasn't in the corner, but it still flew past him. The 28-year-old was then beaten at his near post for Justin Kluivert's strike.

Diogo Dalot

Diogo Dalot has been one of Ten Hag's most trusted players this season, cementing his status as United's first-choice right-back ahead of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

But he had an afternoon to forget on Saturday and didn't offer Willy Kambwala the required support in his third senior start.

For the second Bournemouth goal especially, Dalot was positioned too far apart from Kambwala, allowing Justin Kluivert the space and time to strike.

He only won five of his 13 ground duels and committed four fouls.

Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford can't complain about his critics after his display against Bournemouth.

He struggled to produce anything of substance in a collectively toothless attacking outing.

Rashford completed just 79 per cent of his passes, lost possession of the ball 17 times and came out on top in just one of his nine duels.

Bruno Fernandes was the only attacking threat, and the United No. 10 needs to do more as a headline star alongside the Portuguese captain.

Rasmus Hojlund

Rasmus Hojlund was on top of the world before suffering an injury against Luton in February, becoming the youngest-ever Premier League player to score in six consecutive games with his first-half brace.

However, the 21-year-old has been unable to get going since his return against Liverpool on March 17, failing to score in his last seven matches for club and country.

Hojlund has been the victim of poor service throughout his first season at Old Trafford, but he did little to worry the Bournemouth defence off the ball on Saturday.

He has only recorded one shot on target in his five United appearances since returning to action, which makes dismal reading from an individual and team standpoint.
