Harry Redknapp delivers his honest verdict on Manchester United's 0-0 draw with Burnley
Harry Redknapp felt Manchester United were unlucky after their frustrating goalless draw with Burnley at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils were looking to make a swift return to winning ways on Saturday afternoon after a 4-0 loss to title rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend.
The home side had 72 per cent possession and registered 37 attempts of which 11 were on target but Jose Mourinho’s big-name signings Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic couldn’t make the breakthrough.
The United manager was sat in the stands for the second half following an apparent exchange with referee Mark Clattenburg after a penalty claim in the opening 45 minutes.
Uncapped Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera was sent off for a second bookable offence as United push for a winner but couldn’t make the breakthrough despite Ibrahimovic’s late chance.
“Manchester United have had a real go as you’d expect at home to Burnley,” Redknapp told BT Sport. “They’ve made loads of chances.
“They’ve just not had a break in front of goal. It is a disappointing result.
“They’d expect three points.”
United have failed to win their last four Premier League games following stalemates with Stoke City, Liverpool, Burnley, as well as a 4-0 loss to Chelsea.
The Red Devils are in eighth place and eight points behind leaders Manchester City.
