Burnley held Manchester United to 1-1 Draw

Manchester United fell out of the Premier League’s top four after Jay Rodriguez’s 50th league goal won bottom club Burnley a vital point at Turf Moor.

United dominated play and created the majority of the chances for the second consecutive game, with Paul Pogba scoring his first goal of the season to put them up.

However, as was the case in the FA Cup against Middlesbrough, the visitors were made to pay for their profligacy.

They had two first-half goals disallowed on this occasion, but Nick Pope made outstanding saves to deny Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani, and Raphael Varane.

Burnley, on the other hand, made the most of their brief lead at the opening of the second period, when Rodriguez raced onto Wout Weghorst’s through ball to score his 100th league goal.

United slip to fifth as a result, with the three teams below them all capable of catching them if they win their remaining games.

Burnley are four points from safety but are three unbeaten, despite the fact that their winless run currently stands at ten matches.

 ‘We scored three goals in the first half, I couldn’t blame the team for not having a killer instinct in the first half.

‘We scored three goals in the first half, I couldn’t blame the team for not having a killer instinct in the first half: Rangnick told BT Sport after the game.

‘But yes, at the end, in the last 25 minutes as I said we had a lot of set-pieces, a lot of free-kicks, corner kicks. In the end it was also a little question of luck, with (a chance for) Rafa Varane, the header of Cristiano Ronaldo, the header of Harry Maguire.

‘But again, in the end, one point for a performance like this is just not enough.’
