Man­chester Uni­ted 0 Burn­ley 2, Old Traf­ford, Eng­lish Pre­mier Lea­gue Fix­ture, Jan­uary 22, 2020. Man­chester Uni­ted fell 2-0 at ho­me to Burn­ley who­se goals were sco­red by Chris Wood and Jay Rodrig­uez in the 39th and 56th min­utes of the ga­me respectively.

Man­chester United´s roller coast­er form con­tin­ued as The Reds suf­fered their fir­st ever Pre­mier Lea­gue de­feat by Burn­ley at Old Traf­ford. The Clarets went in front six min­utes ahead of the break when New Zea­l­and in­ter­na­tion­al Chris Wood met a knock-down from ex-Man­chester City de­fender Ben Mee and smash­ed ho­me from the edge of the six-yard area. The Turf Moor out­fit con­tin­ued to threat fol­low­ing the re­sump­tion and the vis­it­ors doubled their ad­vant­age el­ev­en min­utes in­to the sec­ond pe­riod thro­ugh loc­al born front­man Jay Rodrig­uez who, af­ter play­ing a clev­er one-two wi­th Wood, ham­mered the ball pa­st Man­chester Uni­ted goal­keeper Da­vid de Gea and in­to the top left-hand cor­ner of the net. Al­though it was a poor show­ing from Uni­ted, De Gea put in a fine per­form­ance be­tween the posts and the twenty-nine-year-old shot stop­per could hardly be blamed for any of the goals sco­red ag­ainst him.
