However United’s Norwegian interim boss will still be hugely satisfied this Wednesday following an amazing comeback performance against Burnley.
Burnley must have through they’d done enough to claim all three points when they established a 2-goal lead at Old Trafford.

But in classic Man United fashion, the home side staged a late fightback.
Paul Pogba scored from the spot to give United a foothold in the game in the 87th minute.
Swedish defender Victor Lindelof was the unlikely hero for United as he scored a 90th minute leveller.
