Bournemouth - Manchester United conceded directly from a second-minute corner on its way to a humbling 2-1 loss at Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday, capping a humiliating week for England's biggest club that began with a Champions League group-stage exit.

In front of 11,500 fans in its cramped and atmospheric Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth — a tiny coastal club that almost fell from England's professional leagues six years ago — completed a remarkable double following a 1-0 win at reigning Premier League champion Chelsea last week.

Josh King was the match-winner for Bournemouth in the 54th minute, finding himself in lots of space to turn in a finish from a pre-planned corner routine. There had been more embarrassment earlier for United, when Junior Stanislas' corner kick sailed directly into the far corner to give the hosts the lead.

Marouane Fellaini equalized for United in the 24th.

The defeat piles more pressure on United manager Louis van Gaal.
