Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Harry Maguire was blamed by Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand for the draw the Red Devils ended up getting against Burnley on Tuesday night, February 8, in the Premier League game.

Going into the match, Manchester United players wanted to win so as to put behind them the disappointment of crashing out in the FA Cup losing against Middlesbrough.

And they indeed started the Premier League game against Burnley on an impressive note with Raphael Varane thinking he had opened the scoring for Manchester United in the 17th minute, but VAR ruled out his effort.

Manchester United eventually got the breakthrough against Burnley in the 18th minute through France international Paul Pogba who recently recuperated from injury.
