Lingard rescues Manchester United, record breaker Kane hits treble

Tottenham star Harry Kane is poised to break Alan Shearer's record

Leicester host Mourinho's side on the back of their own League Cup defeat on Wednesday to United's cross-city rivals Manchester City.

"You have to keep going". 'You say seven points from 15, I say last two matches we had 15 chances to score and we conceded three "S" [s***] goals and an awesome free-kick.

Mata put United 2-1 ahead with a superbly-taken free-kick and revealed afterwards that his goal celebration was a dedication to Indian children with whom his charitable foundation Common Goal works.

"If we instead of drawing win at the end, we would have been saying that it was a fantastic game, that we came back and we did the most hard thing which is to score twice after they went ahead".

'They are trying hard with the problems and injuries we have.

Eric Bailly is sidelined after ankle surgery and an unspecified injury meant versatile full-back Matteo Darmian missed the draw at Leicester, where Chris Smalling received a knock late in proceedings.

Lingard came off the bench to flick home and give his side a lifeline, and Burnley were denied a first away league win over United since September 1962 when the England global fired home in second-half injury-time.

Burnley will be looking to respond to the 3-0 home defeat by Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend and will be without in-form defender James Tarkowski, who serves the second game of a three-match ban.

United's title challenge has evaporated this month after dropping seven points in five Premier League games.

But Clarets manager Dyche has every reason to be pleased with the first half of the season as his team visit Old Trafford just three points from the Champions League places. We get a point but it feels like a defeat because we were so close to winning and we had a chance to kill the game.

"The key is to be competitive".

"We're happy with the performance". We want to improve on last season and there are clear signs of that'.

"I think they lost a good opportunity also to play semi-finals and also to have two more matches to play".
