Gary Lineker expressed his surprise at Manchester United’s last-gasp comeback to rescue a 2-2 draw with Burnley at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was looking to become the first Red Devils boss to win his opening seven league games in charge.

The Red Devils were 3-1 winners against Arsenal in the FA Cup in north London to set up a fifth-round meeting with Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge.

However, Manchester United fell behind when Ashley Barnes broke the deadlock in the 51st minute to leave Solskjaer facing the prospect of a first loss.

When Chris Wood doubled the away side’s lead with nine minutes to go, the Norwegian manager looked destined to taste his first loss of the campaign.

Paul Pogba halved the deficit with three minutes to go when the France international scored his sixth goal in eight games under Solskjaer.

Remarkably, the Red Devils levelled in added time when Sweden international Victor Lindelof rescued a point for the 20-time English champions.

Former Spurs striker Lineker reacted to Manchester United’s stunning comeback to rescue a point and protect Solskjaer’s unbeaten record.

Lineker wrote on Twitter: “Wow. @ManUtd have come back to 2-2 in Ole Gunnar time. Not got quite the same ring to it…”

Former Manchester United striker Webber appreciated the irony of the club’s first last-gasp comeback under Solskjaer.

Webber posted on social media: “Ole Time #FightingSpirit @ManUtd”

Manchester United are in sixth spot and two points behind Chelsea FC in the final Champions League spot.
