[Video Highlights] Man Utd 0-0 Burnley: Heaton Heroics Deny Zlatan & Co

By on October 29, 2016

Tom Heaton was in inspired form as Manchester United were held to a hugely frustrating 0-0 draw by Burnley at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

The hosts dominated from the outset with Juan Mata among those to miss decent early chances as he forced Tom Heaton in to a couple of saves during the opening 25 minutes.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic then missed one of several chances to fall his way as he saw his effort deflected over the bar shortly before half time as the two sides went in to the break at 0-0.

Ibrahimovic then squandered another opportunity just after half time before Heaton pulled off a sensational stop at the far post to deny the Swede’s acrobatic volley in the 60th minute.

United’s task of breaking Burnley down got even harder when Ander Herrera saw red for a second bookable offence but the hosts continued to dominate and push for a winner.

Ibrahimovic missed the best of the late chances as he sliced wide when well placed at the far post with Burnley holding on to secure a 0-0 draw despite United creating an incredible 37 attempts at goal.

The result leaves United sitting eighth in the Premier League table and eight points adrift of joint leaders Manchester City and Arsenal after their wins today.
