Manchester United 1-1 Burnley: Nothing to separate Red Devils from Clarets

Erik ten Hag will have more new questions to answer after Manchester United failed to beat Burnley at Old Trafford on Saturday, leaving the Red Devils with just one win from their last six Premier League games.

The result leaves Man United (54 points - 6th place) six point off 5th-place Tottenham, having played two more games at this point. Burnley (23 points - 19th place) will be heartened by the result and their contributions to a thrilling game, but the Clarets remain three points away from safety with four games left to play.

Nothing to differentiate which side Man United, which side Burnley

What ended 1-1 could have just as easily been 3-3 or 4-4 with the number of shots (43) and nearly 4.0 xG between the sides. Man United were in control for much of the first half, as they took 10 straight shots in the first 25 minutes and looked certain to score any minute now; Burnley couldn't get the ball out of their own half until a big momentum swing around the 25th minute, and suddenly it was anyone's game.

Burnley were finding the out-balls they needed to launch counter-attacks, and it was everything that Ten Hag hoped to avoid with a midfield and defensive spine comprised of Christian Eriksen and Kobbie Mainoo protecting Casemiro and Harry Maguire. Andre Onana was the hero in the first half, making three increasingly impressive saves as it drew to a close, but would wind up the goat again in the second half.

Antony gave Man United the lead in the 79th minute, but Onana gave away an 87th-minute penalty when he needlessly barged through Zeki Amdouni in the air. Amdouni was the one who stepped to the spot, sent Onana one way and rolled the ball the other. An unexpected, but thoroughly deserved, point for Burnley.

What’s next?

Man United will have more than a week to prepare for their next PL fixture next Monday (3 pm ET), when they visit Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Burnley will host Newcastle at Turf Moor next Saturday (10 am ET).
