Manchester United 2-2 Burnley: Lingard rescues late point for Mourinho’s men [Best Tweets]

Manchester United left it really late to earn a point against Burnley as they came from two goals down to hold the visitors to a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

The hosts were left shell shocked by the time the first 45 minutes ended as goals from Ashley Barnes and Steven Defour gave Burnley a two-goal lead without being threatened a lot on the other end. But, Manchester United weren’t going down without a fight.

Jesse Lingard was introduced at half-time and after missing a goal from point blank range, he turned into the saviour for Jose Mourinho & co. The England international first scored from a brilliant flick to pull one back before levelling things up in injury time with a half volley.

The draw meant that Burnley are still unbeaten against Manchester United on Boxing Day, while the misery deepened for Mourinho, who was not at favour with his fans, while also being trolled by rivals post the result.

But, the hero on the night for Manchester United was Jesse Lingard, who was hailed for his point-saving brace.
