Manchester continue their unbeaten run today against Burnley but Sean Dyche’s side puts an end to United’s wining streak as the Reds were held to a 2-2 draw at home. A frustrating afternoon for the Red Devils but they leave Old Trafford tonight with a point. A goal from Pogba from the spot and Victor Lindelof’s late equalizer is what held us together.
Although it was a bit hard to pick things out from this match tonight, there are some things that stood out for me and here are some points we’ve learned from tonight’s game.
Andreas Pereira Not Good Enough.
Pereira had his first start for Manchester United since who knows when and it looks like it could be his last, let alone if he will play again for the Red Devils. Andreas lost the ball in our half which led to the opening goal for Burnley. Absolute disappointing performance from him. In my opinion, he should be sold before Fellaini.
Herrera Energy Missing.
It’s without a doubt that Ander Herrera is a key figure in Ole’s Manchester United System and today it showed that as they looked lost in the midfield and there was not much drive from Andreas, who replaced Herrera this evening.
Burnley Defense Solid.
Yes, Manchester United were full on attacking and asking questions of their defense but I have to give credit where it is due, Burnley’s back line was on full lock-down this game as they would clear the ball and forced us to make mistakes and forced us to shoot from distance but that was until the very end where Man United managed to tie it up 2-2.
Heaton Over Pickford.
This is just because he had a very good game against Man United but Tom Heaton saved Burnley many times throughout this game and if I were Gareth Southgate, I’d definitely keep an eye on him.
Ice-Man Is Real.
If Ice-Man from the comics were real, it would be Victor Lindelof as he comes though again for Manchester United and this time it wasn’t just the brave defending, Lindelof scored the equalizer in stoppage time to rescue a point and keep the unbeaten run alive for the Reds. For sure, our best CB at Manchester United.
Typical Manchester United Fashion.
Every-time it seems like Man Utd are finished and written off, they rise right back up. It seemed like we would win this comfortably but that obviously was not the case tonight as we scraped away with a point but the important thing is that we didn’t lose and we walk away with a point. Loved the fight and the lads showed desire to get back into the game.
