We'll leave you there for the day, but there is plenty more football going on right now. Arsenal v Liverpool is here and Cardiff v QPR is this way.

Juan Mata scored his first Premier League goal under the management of Jose Mourinho today. He failed to score in 13 appearances under the Portuguese at Chelsea, before he was shipped out to United in 2014.

'I don't like Sundays'

Bournemouth have lost all six of their Premier League games played on a Sunday. The Cherries have gone 11 Premier League games without keeping a clean sheet, last keeping a shutout in March.

Rooney only behind Shearer and Lampard

Only Alan Shearer and Frank Lampard (8) have scored more opening day Premier League goals than Wayne Rooney (7).

Cherries set to sign Wilson

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has also confirmed that the club have agreed a fee to sign Stoke's Republic of Ireland defender Marc Wilson, 28.

Manager reaction - Eddie Howe

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe to BBC Sport: "I thought it was an even game until the first goal, that was the key moment in the game. We dominated the early stages but you can't gift Manchester United goals, which we did.

"You can't lambaste individuals for that - it's the game. The second half was more difficult and they got their goals in quick succession.

"But credit to the lads - they got back into the game and had a strong end. We didn't pen them in enough and put them under pressure. 

"Lewis Cook has exceptional talent. He fitted in very well, he has a good mentality. He'll only get better. I thought Jordon Ibe did well in flashes. He showed what he will bring to us with dribble and counter attacking. He's an exciting talent. There's more to come from him."

'United have made statement'

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney to BBC Sport: "I thought we won it with a bit of style in the second half. One down, 37 to go."  

To Sky Sports:"We have made a real statement bringing in four great signings and the new manager. There is a lot of excitement from ourselves and the fans.

"I've not had to prove anything to anyone. I've been playing a long time. I believe I'm good enough to play."

Who goes when Pogba plays?

Jose Mourinho: "Paul Pogba is very good, he's a phenomenal player. Our idea is that he will be a very important player for us. 

"In August it can be frustrating for players not in the team, because it's one game a week. But in September we have the League Cup, the Europa League starts and there's international games. It's a real marathon and then there’s space for everyone. That’s why we have such a good squad.

"I met a sad squad in my first day, a squad not happy with their situation. But I found immediately a team who want to work and win matches and titles, as well as making fans proud."

More from Mourinho

More from Jose Mourinho to BBC Sport: "It’s incredible how Zlatan Ibrahimovic has never won the Golden Ball. He wants to win the Premier League, not the Golden Ball."

On comparisons with Wayne Rooney: "Different times, different ages. Eric Cantona was here at the best moment in his career. This guy [Zlatan] is more than a player. For the next two seasons I think he can be phenomenal for the team and the Premier League."

Mourinho reaction

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho told BBC Sport: "I am very happy. Bournemouth always start with great intensity but we kept our control. We weren’t surprised and then we started playing. 

"In the second half we had a bit more confidence. 

"But you make a mistake in the Premier League and you get punished [when Bournemouth scored]. Instead of going for a bigger result you have to try to control. We went for that and were always in control. I’m happy with the team."

Zlatan reaction

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Sky Sports: "The team did good. It was a difficult game. In the first half we weren't 100% but we had more space in the second half and could play our game.

"It's important to start good. It [being new to the league] is not easy. Everything is new for me, my team-mates, the clubs, the environment. i just play my game. 

"I try to do my job and help my team. The first objective is to win, it's also good if I score. But it's the same importance whoever scores."

That interview was very noteworthy for a lack of ego by the way.

All smiles amongst the Manchester United contingent.

Jose Mourinho disappeared down the tunnel - his unbeaten opening day record intact.

His coaching staff remained to celebrate with the players.

The whole job is not done yet though. Substitutes Marcus Rashford, Morgan Schneiderlin, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Michael Carrick are doing a post-match training session.

More and more...

We'll bring you reaction from the managers and players to the game. If that isn't your cup of tea, don't panic.

You can follow Arsenal v Liverpool here.

Or you can follow Cardiff v QPR here.

Handshakes on the pitch after a hard but fairly fought game. Zlatan Ibrahimovic goes to applaud the visiting fans. I can't say I was expecting him to play the full 90, well 94, minutes on his Premier League debut.

Jose Mourinho has just had a bizarre exchange with Marouane Fellaini.

The Belgian must have taken a knock because Mourinho yelled to ask if he wanted to stay on or come off.

Fellaini's reply was effectively 'up to you', so Mourinho asked again. This time Fellaini said he would stay on.

Mourinho gave the thumbs up. So Anthony Martial came off for Morgan Schneiderlin instead.

Question is, who is taller? Martial or Schneiderlin?

'See ya round Harry Arter' says Zlatan Ibrahimovic (probably) as he flicks the ball over the Cherries midfielder and chases onto it, running into the box, before squaring to nobody in particular.

That's actual his first touch in the penalty area, with five minutes left.

1 - @HenrikhMkh is the first Armenian player to play in the @premierleague, meaning 112 different nations have now been represented. New.

New season, new faces

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Borussia Dortmund to Manchester United

Age: 27 Cost: £26m (reported) Position: Attacking midfielder

Career so far: Started in his homeland of Armenia with Pyunik, before spells with Metalurh and Shakhtar Donetsk. Joined Dortmund three years ago, scoring 23 goals in 88 Bundesliga appearances. Had a hand in 49 goals (23 goals, 26 assists) in 52 games for Dortmund last season.

What type of player is he? Plays most of his football as an attacking midfielder, but can also play in a deeper midfield role, on the wing or just off a striker. An expert passer and finisher, as his stats for last season show.

Will he cut it in the Premier League? Has all the characteristics needed to be one of the stars of the Premier League. However, a word of caution - the last Dortmund playmaker that United signed was Shinji Kagawa, who only lasted two years at Old Trafford.

What has been said about him? "He is one of the most talented players in the world. He possesses an incredible combination of speed and technique. There's very, very few you can say that about," Jurgen Klopp in 2015.

GOAL - Bournemouth 1-3 Man Utd

Adam Smith

Oh hello, right from nowhere Bournemouth are back in this game. Adam Smith absolutely wallops one into the top corner from about 14 yards out. David de Gea didn't stand a chance.

It was set up by Lewis Grabban, 60 seconds after he left the bench.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic still hasn't had a touch in the penalty area, but he's got a goal on his Premier League debut.
