Manchester United tightened its grip on second place in the Premier League after goals in each half by defender Chris Smalling and substitute Romelu Lukaku gave it a clinical 2-0 win at Bournemouth on Wednesday.

The result left United, which suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat by bottom team West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, second on 74 points from 34 games, 13 behind champion Manchester City and four ahead of third-place Liverpool.
