Jesse Lingard came off the bench to score a brace as Manchester United came from behind to draw 2-2 with Burnley at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Tuesday.Ashley Barnes had given the Clarets a third-minute lead, before Steven Defour doubled their advantage with a well-taken freekick also in the first half, before Lingard came off the bench in the second half to score a brace, including a late-minute equalizer to salvage a point for the Red DevilsAfter the draw with Leicester that ‘felt like a defeat’, Manchester United were expected to take a pound of flesh on Burnley, who came visiting at Old Trafford on Tuesday. But the game hadn’t even gone into the first five minutes when the Red Devils conceded a goal.The Clarets had won a corner in the third minute, and the ball was launched into the United box with the defenders failing to clear, allowing Barnes to tap home from close range after the rebound fell kindly into his path. A real surprise, but Mourinho’s men were trailing so early in the game.You would think United would go full throttle after conceding so early, but it was Burnley who had the next chance in the game, but Scott Arfield wasted a huge chance as he sent a first-time shot from the goal area straight onto the crossbar!Paul Pogba then went close for United with a header, but it lacked the necessary power to trouble the Burnley goalkeeper and the Clarets survive.
