Well, it had to happen at some point I suppose… Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s winning streak at Manchester United ended with the 2-2 draw at home to Burnley last night. However, his unbeaten run continues on…
The game itself was rather entertaining with United peppering Tom Heaton’s goal with chances throughout. They just couldn’t break through, and Burnley eventually went 2-0 up after two excellent counter-attacks.
At fault was the young Andreas Pereira, who, quite honestly, looked out of his depth from minute one. His passing was sloppy, he bottled out of an important 50/50 and he just looked way off the pace. Whether that’s down to a lack of fitness or Premier League experience remains to be seen, but you do expect better.
Perhaps this is why Jose Mourinho refused to play him regularly, maybe he’s just not good enough for United, and last night, I think the fans started to realise that.
It’s now stick or twist time for Solskjaer. With time running out in this transfer window it doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere, and with Pereira being out of contract this summer, he may walk away for free.
As you’d imagine, United supporters were less than kind to Pereira on social media in the wake of the draw. Here are some of the most fitting tweets:
