Manchester United Vs Burnley EPL 29 January Review

Manchester United played out a 2 all draw with Burnley at Old Trafford with Victor Lindelof playing Saviour after netting the equalizer in stoppage time.

Although, United remain unbeaten under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Norwegian manager has seen his winning start come to an end right in front of his home fans.

Manchester United should have gotten the lead in the ninth minute – or so they thought – after Lukaku put Rashford through on goal but the English man’s shot just went begging. He must be hitting himself for losing that chance.

The first 45 minutes went with chances for both sides but with none of those chances causing any changes on the score sheet.

However six minutes into the start of the second half, Burnley who have been unbeaten in their last four league games coming into this went ahead after a through ball from James Cork released a Claret and afforded him the chance to blast the ball home. Guessing the Claret, it just had to be Ashley Barnes.

Burnley goalkeeper was soon called into action with Paul Pogba having tried a shot from distance. Tom Heaton played savior once more as he saved a close range effort from Romelu Lukaku. Game over?  Nah

The Clarets doubled their lead in the 81st minute via a Chris Wood header, this was definitely the end of the road for Ole Gunnnar Solskjaer and his boys – their honeymoon if you like.

But the fighting spirit of Ole boys showed forth after Jesse Lingard was brought to the ground by Jeff Hendrick with Paul Pogba stepping up to the spot and converting after making his now-trademark stuttering run.

Ninety minutes was up and with stoppage time in view, Manchester United were in desperate need for goal. Their hunt paid off soon after as Burnley Keeper parried an Alexis Sanchez header and leaving it in the path of centre-back Victor Lindelof who wasn’t shy of grabbing the wining goal.

Manchester United 2-2 Burnley it ended.
