EPL Update: Man United’s Run Came to an End as City Suffered Defeat
Manchester United’s winning run came to an end yesterday as they had to come back from 2 goal down to hold Burnley to a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford last night.
The Reds had enjoyed a winning run in all competitions under caretaker boss, Ole Solskjaer since taking over from Mourinho last month but the fantasy start was over when they let in two weak goals against Burnley despite having controlled most part of the game.
United conceded two goals in the second half from two avoidable mistakes, but a spot kick from Pogba and a late goal from Lindelof handed them much deserved draw
However, there are positives to take away from the draw as a lot of fans had wondered how the team would bounce back when they trail to an opposition team because all the games won under the caretaker boss come when United had taken the lead.
In other fixtures, Man City had literally handed Liverpool a free run to league by getting a 2-1 defeat at Newcastle last night. City led through an early goal by Aguero but two second half Newcastle goals could be crucial to their run for title as Liverpool will be motivated to beat Leicester at Anfield later today.
Arsenal managed 2-1 win over Cardiff, courtesy of goals from Lacazette and Aubamayang. The Gunners struggled in the first half but found a breakthrough in the 68th minute via Auba’s goal before Lacazette added a second. Cardiff had to settle with a consolation to peg the scoreline at 2-1
