37 Shots On Goal Not Enough As United Held At Home By Burnley
One step forward, two steps backwards...
There was a positive mood at Old Trafford after United's midweek EFL Cup victory over Manchester rivals City.
But could Mourinho's men kick on and gain a crucial league win over Burnley? 'No' is the short answer.
In any case, here's the story of the match. If you're bothered. We're going for a pint.
United straight out of the blocks...
Lively start by #mufc. Ibrahimovic and now Pogba have already had good chances. Front six set-up the same as it was vs Stoke.— Samuel Luckhurst (@samuelluckhurst) October 29, 2016
Captain for the day Juan Mata was characteristically pulling the strings...
Mata getting us ticking. Again. #MatchdayMac— Full Time DEVILS (@FullTimeDEVILS) October 29, 2016
Mourinho was sent to the stands after taking issue with some of the refereeing decisions...
The funny thing is Mourinho has just had to stand up out of seat to let someone get past. He can barely see over the fence— James Ducker (@TelegraphDucker) October 29, 2016

Suspect history's played a part in Mourinho's (probable) outburst. Clattenburg cocked up in the derby over Bravo tackle on Rooney. #mufc— Samuel Luckhurst (@samuelluckhurst) October 29, 2016
Former Red Tom Heaton was performing miracles in the Burnley goal...
Heaton on PEDs.— Jason Hope (@iamjasonhope) October 29, 2016
Good play from Zlatan and it's Mata who has his shot saved from Heaton who has been sensational.— Will Perry-Parks (@willperryparks) October 29, 2016

Ander Herrera soon joined his manager for an early bath...
Interesting tactic switching to ten men imho, can't see it panning out.— Bi6thfurcated_MBM (@bifurcated_MBM) October 29, 2016
Speaking of tactics...
United down to ten men at home with game goalless with 18 mins to go and he takes off the player who has been orchestrating it, Mata. Odd— James Ducker (@TelegraphDucker) October 29, 2016
Into injury time and United kept huffing and puffing...
How Utd haven't won this game it's incredible— Philip Neville (@fizzer18) October 29, 2016
Boos as Rojo clownishly blasts the ball into the Stretford End. Becoming a 04/05 performance from United.— Samuel Luckhurst (@samuelluckhurst) October 29, 2016
Rooney peels off, Blind rolls free kick to him, all set up but Rooney fires shot a yard over bar. The chances ...— James Ducker (@TelegraphDucker) October 29, 2016
Full time and United are now eight points off the top of the table after 10 games...
Classic self-martyrdom by Mourinho— Paul Morrissey (@Paul_Morrissey) October 29, 2016
This wry smile came just after Herrera's penalty appeal - which was a perfect tackle by Burnley defender https://t.co/bcflXym3vC
