Sean Dyche explains reason for his detailed Old Trafford pitch inspection

Manchester United was on the right side of a last-minute equalizer in the English Premier League as Jesse Lingard's double from the bench salvaged a point against Burnley in a 2-2 draw on Tuesday.

The France worldwide was omitted from the Red Devils team due to a slight knee problem that the Manchester United forward suffered during a 2-2 draw with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium at the weekend.

"We should have won. All the boys accepted the risk that we took, at least the point is not a defeat and is the mimnimum the boys deserve for such spirit".

United responded positively and Burnley skipper Ben Mee had to clear a Marcus Rashford effort off the line - an indication of what was to follow after the break.

The Swede did not reappear for the second half, along with Marcos Rojo - the duo being replaced by Jesse Lingard and Henrikh Mkhitaryan respectively, with the substitutions having the desired effect. But the mentality is so important; to go into the next game and say "that's parked, we learn from it and move on".

United threw everything at the Clarets and Lingard got the home side back in the game with a clever back-heel flick, from a low Ashley Young cross, in the 53rd minute.

Lingard came off the bench to flick home and give his side a lifeline, and Burnley were denied a first away league win over United since September 1962 when the England global fired home in second-half injury-time.

The late leveller left Burnley manager Sean Dyche with mixed feelings but he was proud of the way a makeshift defence had coped with the intense pressure. The gameplan is you're going to have to defend and do all of the ugly details of the game well.

"I have mentioned it in the build up to the circumstances (injury absences), how much pride I take in the players who are playing, let alone those who are playing, including the professional respect they have for each other and the way they work. To come out with a point is pleasing", he said.
