Unfortunately for Manchester United, Harry Maguire showed once again just why he’s not suited for the central defensive role at the Red Devils.
Just a couple of minutes into the second half at Turf Moor, Burnley’s Wout Weghorst turned the defender with ease and then played a ball in behind for Jay Rodriguez to go on and score.
Maguire certainly had the opportunity to be able to make a sliding tackle before Rodriguez had the chance to get a shot away, but he appeared too scared to giveaway a penalty.
It was an awful piece of defending and it gave Burnley a lifeline with their first shot on goal.
Jay Rodriguez puts Man Utd to the sword and that could be a huge goal for Burnley! ?
