Oh, and happy Diwali my peeps. Stay safe, Have loads of fun! Do join the ever-excellent Sunny Sagar as he brings Barcelona v Granada alive on your mobile/computer screens!

39 attempts on goal. 20 corners. One shot that smacked the post. Another that looped off the bar. Manchester United played some absolutely incredibly football at times, but that finishing touch never followed. They did run into an inspired trio of Heaton, Keane and Mee as they pulled of stunning save/block after stunning save/block. That is as close as any side will go to scoring without actually doing the dirty. 

That Ander Herrera sending off was a sucker-punch, and by the looks of it, more than a tad unfair. 

Sean Dyche's men deserved the point though, for their incredible bravery and full blooded commitment. They might even have nicked it - especially after Herrera got sent off - but they lacked that touch of finishing class that often marks the difference between 3 points and 1. 

Jose Mourinho, on the other  hand, has an almighty task ahead of him to keep morale up - with the team, the board, and the supporters. It's how he handles this that will define his legacy

It was a thrill-a-minute entertainer that never gave anyone time to draw their breath, and it was an absolute pleasure bringing it to you.

FULLTIME!!!

A superb result for Burnley, incredibly unlucky for United

...

94' Pogba smacks a ball right at Keane. He appeals for handball where there is none. 

...

93' Memphis tries to flick it on. Heaton gets to it first. Of course he does. The goalkeeper has been majestic

...

.... he rolls it to Wayne Rooney, and he smacks it just high. HE SHOULD HAVE SCORED THERE!! OH MY GOOD LORD!

...

92' Blind stands over the freekick...

...

91' United have 37 attempts on goal. YELLOW for Marney as he cleans up Fellaini near the corner flag

...

90' Rojo has a pop from nigh on forty yards. Sigh.

...

Five minutes added on!

...

89' Pogba puts in an even better ball that finds Zlatan Ibrahimovic all alone one yard from goal. HE PUTS IT OVER!

...

88' Paul Pogba swings in a SUPERB ball that is cleared by the inspired Mee.

...

87' OH LUKE SHAW!!!! The left back curls one juuuust wideof Heaton's post. 

...

86' Blind tries to place on in from twenty yards. Mee is in the way. AS HE HAS BEEN ALL DAY. United win their 19th corner of the day

...

85' Rooney and Zlatan attempt to one-two their way through the Burnley middle. It's all happening in slow motion though. Too slow

...

84' SUBSTITUTION - Gudmundsson OFF, Boyd ON

...

83' Pogba is late on Lowton. YELLOW, and rightly so

...

81' SUBSTITUTION - Rashford OFF, Memphis ON. That's Jose's last roll of the dice. 

It will be a brilliant result for Burnley, if they can hold on. They've defended with their lives!

...

79' Nothing comes of the corner, and United are back to prying and probing. Zlatan tries to blitz through the defence, but another superb Keane tackle outs an end to it 

...

78' Pogba puts in a superb ball. Lowton comes up with an even better defensive header to clear it. Corner for United

...

77' Barnes gets the better of Rojo and tries to find Vokes in the middle. It almost takes out a floodlight. 

...

76' Gudmundsson gets on the other end and swings in a delicious left-footed cross that just evades the outstretched legs of Vokes!

...

75' Gudmundsson picks off Wayne Rooney like an adult would a child. It's painful to watch a legend struggle so much. 

...

74' Rashford swings it in. It's too close to Tom Heaton. Magnificent keeping from the Burnley keeper

...

73' Gudmundsson swings in a ball that bounces off harmlessly. Sean Dyche's men can smell something here - but their final ball needs to improve drastically.

...

Have you ever read the Godfather? In it Mario Puzo writes about Don Corleone's smile - It's the scariest thing ever. Mourinho has that smile on right now. 

...

71' Lingard and Mata OFF, Fellaini and Rooney ON!

...

Superb tackle that was from Barnes!!!

...

70' Darmian goes down under intense pressure from Barnes! Clattenburg waves play on. Mourinho looks like he can scare the living shit out of the devil right now. 

...

69' Burnley can smell something here, and they are suddenly on the attack. This particular one ends with Arfield dragging his shot wide

...

68' HERERRA SENT OFF!!! THE SPANIARD SLIPPED INTO BARNES AND HE GOT SENT OFF!!! OH MY GOODNESS LORD!

...

WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING HERE!!! United are barging through here. Mata smacks the post with a superb pivot shot, then Zlatan hits the post with a looping header. 

...

67' ZLATAN HITS THE BAR!!!

...

66' MATA HITS THE POST!!! 

...

65' Zlatan and Pogba combine again to win Rashford an inch ofspace. His shot is BLOCKED!

...

64' A substitution I missed out on happened on the hour mark - Gray OFF, Barnes ON

...

63' OH HO HO. What sweet football from United right now. Zlatan, Pogba and Mata exchange passes before Lingard's shot is... you guessed it, blocked. 

...

62' Zlatan is a man on a mission. He teases and torments the Burnley defence before playing a cute ball into Shaw. Burnley hack it clear

...

61' As a certain Scot once said - "Football, Bloody HELL"

...

60' ZLATAAAAAAN!!! HE SMACKS AN UNBELIEVABLE VOLLEY THAT SHOULD GO IN! BUT HEATON IS IN INSPIRED FORM!! SIMPLY OUTSTANDING STUFF FROM BOTH OF THEM. WOW.
