MAN UTD 2-2 BURNLEY
FT: That's it! United come back to earn a draw, but you can't help but feel they're not happy.
Burnley fans give them a huge ovation, but they're denied a first win at Old Trafford since 1962. Two goals up at half time, they'll be disappointed not to hold on after some heroic defending.
Jesse Lingard turns the game in United's favour, but City can stretch their lead to 15 points tomorrow evening...
90+3: A couple minutes remaining here, and surely 30 second or so added on for the goal.
United fans chanting 'Attack, attack, attack!' as they pile forward. Young has it on the right, Mata, crosses, Mee gets a head on it, and Pope gathers!
GOAL! MAN UTD 2-2 BURNLEY (Lingard 90+1)
Five minutes added on, and United equalise in the first of those five!
Mata's free-kick is cleared, Young's weak effort is blocked by Mee, but Lingard gives United hope with a fine half volley into the right corner from 15 yards!
Great finish, can they find a winner?!
MAN UTD 1-2 BURNLEY
88: Brilliant, brilliant defending from Bardsley again, putting his head where it hurts, clashing with Rashford's and winning a free-kick inside the box.
86: Mata floats one, towards Lukaku, but Bardsley clears again! The former United man has been impressive today.
84: Burnley sitting in now, and it feels like backs to the wall now. Free-kick to United, at the feet of Young to the right in a crossing position...
82: End of the road for Ashley Barnes, who scored the opener. Jon Walters replaces him.
80: Young with another decent ball from the right, it finds Mkhitaryan at the back post, but he can't quite get over it and heads wide! Bardsley did well.
78: For a few minutes at least, United are forced to pump it high to Lukaku as Burnley get good shape in defence and midfield. Jon Walters is being readied...
75: United with wave after wave of attacks now, as you'd expect. But again and again, Burnley's defence get it spot on. Dyche is screaming at his players to push further up; they're inviting pressure.
73: Phil Jones sticks in a beauty towards the six-yard box, but Bardsley deals with it well as Mkhitaryan arrived at the back post. Mata then tries a chip from the left of the box, but Pope deals with it easily.
71: Pogba steps up... but just a yard high of Pope's crossbar! Pope is then booked for time-wasting, to the delight of the Old Trafford crowd.
70: Shooting chance... Bardsley flies in on Pogba, and is booked. Just 25-30 yards from goal, and a chance for Pogba to shoot.

Sky Bet's Manchester United v Burnley Price Boosts...
68: First Burnley change as goalscorer Defour is replaced by Sam Vokes for the final 25 minutes or so.
66: Rashford crosses with so much pace, and it fizzes across the face of goal and Matic can't keep it in at the other end! Nobody reacted fast enough!
65: Mkhitaryan does very well on the left, winning a free-kick on the byline, and Gudmundsson is booked for the block.
63: Bit of controversy here as Barnes, on a yellow, handballs it right in front of the dugout. Atkinson waves advantage, and he won't be booked.
United fans very unhappy.
61: CHANCE! Complete mis-hit from Lukaku from Rashford's dangerous cross... he heads it back where it's come from rather than towards goal, under little pressure eight yards out!
59: Mkhitaryan raises his finger to Bardsley's face, and it threatens to kick off. It eventually calms down, but the United man is booked.
57: Ashley Young has been superb this afternoon. He flicks inside and wins a free-kick on the edge, it's floated to Lukaku back post, but Mkhitaryan can't turn it home as Pope collects!
55: United have their tails up. Will Burnley cope? The counter attack is still routinely on for Dyche side, but they are retreating further and further back towards their own goal.
GOAL! MAN UTD 1-2 BURNLEY (Lingard 53)
Game on! Minutes after a missing a sitter, Lingard redeems himself with a quite superb flick between his legs.
It's Young with the delivery again, low towards the penalty spot from the right, and Lingard produces a fine flick into the far corner past Pope!
Old Trafford bouncing now, the comeback may be on!
MAN UTD 0-2 BURNLEY
51: SO CLOSE! How on earth has this not gone in?!
Young sticks the ball low across the face of goal. Lukaku misses it, but Lingard must apply the finish from a few yards out... Pope gets a touch on it with his face, it loops up, bobbles along the crossbar twice, and is cleared to safety!
"The biggest sitter I've ever seen in football," says Paul Merson on Soccer Saturday.
49: Ben Mee does brilliantly to win a free-kick just as Burnley were under pressure looking to clear. Lingard the culprit.
47: Still a back four for United, but Matic has now gone into the defence in place of Rojo. Lingard wins a corner straight away... but it's helped away by Barnes and then Hendrick.
46: Double change for United as Mkhitaryan and Lingard come on for Rojo and Ibrahimovic. Jose hoping for an impact right from the off...
Back underway at Old Trafford.

Sky Bet's Burnley v Manchester United Price Boosts...
HT: The dream half for Burnley, once again upsetting the odds on their travels! Barnes struck early, and then Defour's beauty of a free-kick gives United a hell of a lot to think about.
The home fans try to gee up their players, chanting 'United, United!' as they trudge off with their heads down.
45+2: At the other end, De Gea drops Taylor's cross, but luckily for United a red shirt is there to clear ahead of Arfield!
45+1: Three added minutes at Old Trafford. Can United go into the break with a goal?
45: Corner to United as the first half comes to a close... Young crosses, Matic comes piling in but can't connect well with it, and it's cleared.
43: CLOSE! Pogba is far too strong for Defour on the edge of the box. He finds a yard and curls one for the top corner, but it grazes the outside of the post! So, so close from the Frenchman!
42: CLOSE! He says...
Ibra is found wide open in the channel inside the box, he shoots left-footed, but Long slides in to produce a vital block!
40: United with the ball all around Burnley's box, but they're remaining very tight, and not allowing the hosts anywhere inside the area...
38: CLOSE! United nearly halve the deficit instantly. Rashford is found on the left of the box, turns inside well and shoots under Pope, but it's cleared on the line by Mee!
GOAL! MAN UTD 0-2 BURNLEY (Defour 36)
Wow. Wow. Wow. What a goal from Steven Defour.
Burnley have a free-kick around 25 yards out, slightly to the left of goal after Ashley Young's foul.
Defour steps up, and curls an absolute beauty into the top left corner. Unbelievable strike!
MAN UTD 0-1 BURNLEY
36: United's fifth corner, but Pope gobbles it up with ease from Shaw's cross. Not the best corner, neither front nor back post.
34: Burnley's Charlie Taylor goes in the book, having gone too tight on Mata.
32: United with 70 per cent possession so far but no breakthrough on the Burnley goal. Burnley have arguably had the better chances, as well as the goal.
30: Shaw sticks a hopeful ball into Lukaku, but Long clears ahead of the Belgian. Burnley counter, led by Gudmundsson, before Bardsley's cross is flicked clear by Young.
28: Great ebb and flow to this game. Both sides just missing that final ball at the minute, but both defences are relatively high up the pitch.
26: Free-kick to Burnley, crossing position. Gudmundsson sticks in another beauty, but Jones does so well to clear ahead of Barnes! Brilliant defending.
Back Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score the next goal in Manchester United v Burnley as a live Sky Bet Price Boost at odds enhanced from 10/3 to 4/1!
24: Cross after cross from United in the past five minutes, and Burnley have looked a bit tetchy inside their own box dealing with them. United with the bit between their teeth.
Fine skill from Lukaku on the right to get past two players and cross right footed, Zlatan fluffs an overhead kick, and then it comes off Mata's shin and through to Pope!
22: SAVE! Mata crosses, Pogba gets up well to head towards the top right corner, and Pope tips it away well! Complete siege on the Burnley goal now.
20: Free-kick to United on the right channel as Young is caught by Arfield.
Mata curls it in, but Pope is alive to it and punches. Bardsley then takes down Ibra on the left, and it's another opportunity to pile the box.
18: SAVE! It opens up for Luke Shaw 30 yards out, he strikes it sweetly with his left foot, and Pope beats it away on the dive to his left with one hand!
