Burnley 0 Manchester United 2


By Burnley FC
December 28 2019

Burnley ended 2019 on a losing note as Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford struck at the end of each half to deny the Clarets any Christmas cheer.

 A second defeat in the space of three days made it a frustrating end to an excellent 12 months for Sean Dyche’s men who remain in the Premier League’s mid-table pack – six points clear of 18th-placed Aston Villa who will ring in the New Year at Turf Moor next Wednesday.

 The Clarets also drew a blank in front of goal for a second game in a row as they suffered a fifth home defeat of the campaign.

 As at Everton, Dyche’s side paid the penalty for another mistake which handed United the all-important opening goal courtesy of Martial a minute before the break.

 But unlike on Merseyside, the Clarets then took more of the fight to their opponents and in a tremendous second-half performance almost repaired the damage.

 With Dwight McNeil and substitutes Jay Rodriguez and Johann Berg Gudmundsson leading the charge, Dyche’s side rattled the visitors, who have lost just twice in the league since early October.

 But their growing pressure wouldn’t pay off and in stoppage time Rashford’s 16th goal of the season snuffed out any possible comeback as Unted kept their top-four hopes alive.

Thought Man U were the better side, some of the shooting from Burnley was woeful, think it was Mc Neil and Hendrick who put a couple of shots well wide or over when they should have done better. Good stop by De Gea from Bardsley, only home shot on target (I think) The stoppage time was exciting, thought Burnley might snatch a late winner but not to be. Talking of excitement, what about Nige? Sky Super Six games stretched over 3 different kick off times today and only two players were left in the running for the £250,000 jackpot with the Burnley game to go, one lad went 1-3 and Nigel 0-2, he must of thought it was all over at 0-1 with Burnley putting on the pressure with seconds to go.
