Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe says that Man United’s Romelu Lukaku should have been sent off during Manchester United’s 1-0 victory.

Howe said Lukaku, who scored the deciding goal, his first goal in the Premier League in a month, should been dismissed late in the first half.

“I thought the first tackle was a yellow card” Howe said (h/t ESPN FC).

“He was very late on Nathan. Then he picked up a clear yellow. He should have been off the pitch.”

Howe complimented his club despite the crushing loss.

“The players delivered the gameplan really well and we looked like we had a real cutting edge. We created chances right up until the end.”

“They have an outstanding goalkeeper who made a number of good saves and maybe we could have done better in and around their box, but when you consider the opposition and where were playing, I was very pleased with players.”
