Manchester United 0 Burnley 2
By Burnley FC
January 22 2020

The Clarets’ class of 2020 wrote themselves into Burnley history as they finally stormed the Old Trafford citadel.

 Not since September, 1962 have the Clarets won at Manchester United.

 They have come close – unbeaten on their last three visits and enjoying two-goal leads in each of the last two seasons.

 Each time, late goals have killed the dream and sent the supporters home thinking of what might have been. Not this time.
 
 Chris Wood and Jay Rodriguez were the goal-scoring stars as they struck either side of half time.

 But there were heroes all over the pitch from a magnificent collective effort which finally ended the long wait and – more importantly for the here and now – made it back-to-back wins and 30 points in the fight to keep competing with the best.

 Despite their supposed travails, United had lost only once at home in the league this season – back in August – to further underlined the scale of the Clarets' achievements on a night they took the fight to the 20-time champions and won.

 Even without injured top scorer Marcus Rashford, who got United’s late second goal in their 2-0 win at Turf Moor at the turn of the year, the hosts were not short of firepower.
