Jesse Lingard has admitted that Manchester United were disappointed with their 2-2 draw with Burnley at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils were trailing 2-0 at half-time following goals Ashley Barnes’s close-range finish in a congested penalty area and before Belgian midfielder Steven Defour fired a brilliant free-kick past David De Gea.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho introduced Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Jesse Lingard at half-time at the expense of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo in an attempt to overturn their 2-0 deficit.

And Lingard managed to open his account for the Premier League clash inside eight minutes before Burnley regrouped to keep Manchester United at bay.

However, Sean Dyche’s men were unable to hold on to secure three points at Old Trafford after Lingard pounced on a loose ball and placed a finish past Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope.

But Lingard wasn’t in a celebratory mood in his post-match interview despite rescuing a point in the Boxing Day clash.

The Manchester United midfielder made the honest admission that was disappointed with the result.

“It’s disapointing, obviously we created a lot of chances, we should have won the game,” Lingard told BBC Sport.

“We dominated the game so we’re disapointed. I’m on form at the moment, it’s great being in the team and helping the team get goals.”

Lingard has now scored six times and has also made four assists in seven starts and nine substitute appearances in the Premier League this season.

Manchester United are in second place but only a point ahead of Chelsea in third spot.
