Manchester United pulled off a comeback to avoid an embarrassing defeat at Old Trafford, as they came back from two goals down to record a 2-2 draw with Burnley.

Goals from Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood gave the visitors a 2-goal lead, before Paul Pogba and Victor Lindelof got on the score sheet to rescue a valuable point for the Mancunians.

Here’s how the Red Devils fared during the Premier League encounter:

 

DAVID DE GEA: 5
Couldn’t do much about Barnes’ venomous strike. Had little else to do otherwise.

ASHLEY YOUNG: 6
Delivered poor crosses in the first half, but showed improvement in the second.

PHIL JONES: 4
His poor pass was followed up by Andreas Pereira’s moment of disaster. A target of booing from the away camp.

VICTOR LINDELOF: 7
Could have prevented the second goal with better marking, but made up for it with a goal of his own, which has been a long time coming.

LUKE SHAW: 6
Made the left wing look dangerous in the first half, but failed to make much of a direct impact.

NEMANJA MATIC: 5
A drop from his recent quality. Missed Ander Herrera alongside him.

ANDREAS PEREIRA: 2
Ineffective in the first half, and his mistake led to the opener. Subbed, and rightly so.

PAUL POGBA: 6
Failed to control the game as he typically does. Did score the equalizing penalty.

JUAN MATA: 3
Hardly provided any valuable inputs throughout the game. Wouldn’t have lasted on the pitch for the entire match had Anthony Martial been fit.

MARCUS RASHFORD: 4
Wasted an incredible one-on-one chance early in the game. Just not as good in the left winger role.

ROMELU LUKAKU: 4
Didn’t do much apart from creating Rashford’s aforementioned goalscoring opportunity.
