Manchester United fans satisfied with comeback draw vs Burnley

Manchester United fans were satisfied with the comeback draw vs Burnley after the prospect of leaving the pitch with no points was a real possibility.

Andreas Pereira, who got his first Premier League start in months, unfortunately slipped and gave the away side an opportunity they didn’t fail to convert.

The Brazilian was a little unfortunate but it also came down to his rustiness after missing action for quite some time.

United’s need for a goal grew and Burnley managed to score a second, leaving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with the need to react.

Substitutions were made and Paul Pogba converted a penalty to hand the Red Devils a lifeline before Victor Lindelof grabbed an injury time equaliser to share the spoils.

Manchester United were expected to breeze through with all three points tonight but the match proved no game is easy in the Premier League.

A point isn’t the ideal result but given the context, Solskjaer’s men did well to walk away with anything in the first place.

Lindelof’s equaliser was also actually his first goal for the club and was the end product of his fine form of late.

United will have to keep their chins up if they hope to catch a desperately needed top four spot.
