Manchester United rallied to salvage a draw at Old Trafford today after falling behind 2-0 to Sean Dyche’s resilient Burnley side.
FT: #MUFC 2 Burnley 2.

A brace by Jesse Lingard, the second in added time at the end, meant United took home a point from the game, but that is two less than they wanted – and needed.
This means Manchester City can open up a FIFTEEN point lead tomorrow if they can beat Newcastle at St. James’ Park – a stadium where the Blues have a good record and are unbeaten since 2005. A draw would restore their previous 13 point lead.
City have won all nine of their away games in the Premier League this season and another in tomorrow’s fixture would give them a lead that may well be impossible to overturn.
But one step at a time. Pep Guardiola declared at his last press conference that the league is far from won and will surely drill that belief into the minds of his players heading into tomorrow’s game.
