PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEP!

That's a grand-stand finish to a smashing Boxing Day game - but it ends 2-2 and Sean Dyche will undoubtedly be the happier of the two. 

That's all from me, Anirudh Menon. 

Thank you for reading!

Toodle-ooo!
...
95' Mata swings it in and Pope does ever so well to gather Mee's header
...
94' Mkhitaryan wastes possession with a useless punt into the box. 
...
93' Young sticks it in, Lukaku gets it on his chest but Mee hacks it clear... Matic wastes possession with a useless hoof up into the box..... Young then swings in another and Pope gathers with as much relief as it's humanly possible to feel
...
OH MY! Mata sticks it into the ball, Young tries to hit it at goal - and Lingard absolutely leathers a toe-poke into the far corner. 
...
91' FIVE MINUTES TO BE ADDED ON! GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! LINGAAAAAARD!
...
90' OH MY! Young stands another one up into the box and Shaw hits it straight at Mee. Jones comes helter skelter after ball and wins a freekick off Cork, who then kicks it away and earns a yellow card for it. 
...
88' Rashford and Bardsley compete for another lovely Young ball - and the two clash heads. Both seem to be okay, but with the ref awarding a freekick to the visitors, Bardsley is bound to be the happier of the two
...
87' Burnley are making this as much of a stop-start game as they can. And they are succeeding in sucking the momentum out of United's movement. 
...
86' Walters then does supremely well to buy a foul off a frustrated Jones. Burnley will take their time about this one. 
...
85' Rashford crosses, Long clears. Mata passes it along the ground, Long clears. Him and Mee have been tremendous all game. 
...
84' Pogba gets surrounded by three players and Arfield ends up tugging the Frenchman down - only way to stop him at times and it's a freekick for United. Which is cleared well by the Clarets
...
83' Mkhitaryan tries to play in Young down the right but overhits it. United to find some urgency from somewhere. and they need it niw
 
...
82' United have slowed down once again, and with that their attacks don't seem have a percentage of the venom that they did fifteen minutes ago
...
81' Substitution for Burnley as Jonathon Walters comes on for Ashley Barnes... 
...
80' For the millionth time, Burnley clear... but don't do it all that well. Young sticks one up at the far post but with Mkhitaryan jumping up for it, there's no chance he's getting much purchase behind that. 
 
...
79' Shaw wins United's millionth corner of the day
 
...
78' Barnes tries to ping a ball out behind Pogba to Vokes... but he's offside. The Welshman also gets a booking for kicking the ball away after the ref's whistle
...
77' Pogba tries to find Lukaku with an early ball in behind the Clarets' defence but the ball's a touch overhit
...
76' This one's headed away considerably farther and then Barnes and Pogba go into a fifty-fifty for which the Frenchman is penalised
...
75' Shaw wins another corner... he'll take it himself... and Rashford wins another one with a shot from just inside the box.
...
74' OH! The initial corner is only half-cleared, Juan Mata - in space inside the box - tries to stick one up to the far post toward Lukaku but its a weak one and Pope gathers comfortably
...
73' Shaw plays in a ball into the box but Burnley clear it - Pogba wins the ball back and Jomes wons another corner with a sublime whip into the box. 
...
72' United handle that set-piece with considerably more confidence than they did any in the first half.
...
72' Ashley Barnes does brilliantly to win a corner off Pogba.  The Frenchman isn't happy but that's not going to change the decision
