Burnley 1-1 Man United: Rodriguez strike denies Ralf Rangkick side

James Rodriguez’s goal in the early stages of the second half earned Burnley a 1-1 draw against Manchester United in a Premier League match played at Turf Moor on Tuesday night.

United started the game with Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench and was left to rue missed chances with VAR chopping off their two goals.

United had the ball in the back of the net shortly after ten minutes, but Raphael Varane’s header was chalked off after VAR spotted an offside Harry Maguire blocking Jay Rodriguez in the build-up. The hosts were to score an own goal later in the half but Pogba was adjudged to have fouled an opponent prior to the goal.

Paul Pogba who was making his first Premier League outing since October had put Ralf Rangnick’s team ahead in a first half that they dominated but Jay Rodriguez’s fine goal soon after the break earned Sean Dyche’s side their point.

Cristiano Ronaldo came on to try and save the day, but he wasted a perfect chance to give the visitors a lead and found himself alone in the box with ten minutes to go but somehow sent his header over the bar.

Burnely will now hope that they can build on the draw when they take Liverpool in their next match at the same ground with United hoping that they can dust themselves when they host Southampton on Saturday.
