First-half report: Man Utd 0-0 Burnley – Reds making matters more complicated

The first half saw Manchester United dominate Burnley with the majority of possession, though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men were unable to find the breakthrough.

At half-time, it remains scoreless. Burnley have defended well in numbers but showed bravely when it came to pushing United back up the pitch when they could.

It was a frustrating first 45 for the Reds, over-complicating their attacks not playing with the same fluidity as they have done in recent weeks under Solskjaer.

There were a few moments that reflect well, such as seeing United defensively squeeze out an attack so cool, with Luke Shaw cleaning up by getting back in time.

Burnley look like they fancy a chance or two against our defence, which will hopefully see them up and commit more mistakes after the interval as legs tire.

Sean Dyche, however, could see this as a potential gained point if things stay the same and alter his tactics by getting more numbers in defence.

That could also play into Solskjaer’s hands if the lads can click in the final third.

Romelu Lukaku has been sloppy in the central role, so it may be time to consider switching roles with Marcus Rashford who could hurt Burnley with his pace, although he has missed a shocker already tonight.
