Amdouni penalty earns Clarets a draw at Old Trafford

Zeki Amdouni won and then converted a late penalty as Burnley kept their survival hopes alive with a 1-1 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday. 

The Red Devils had earlier taken the lead after a darting run and finish from Brazilian winger Antony, who latched onto a defensive error from the visitors before slotting home. 

With Vincent Kompany's side staring down the barrel of a defeat that would have mired them deeper in relegation trouble, Man Utd - as they often have this season - hit the self-destruct button: a poor header from Casemiro causing Andre Onana to charge from his line and take out Amdouni. 

A short VAR review ended in a penalty being awarded, and Amdouni made no mistake from the spot to keep Burnley's survival hopes alive. 

Much as he did earlier in the season against Wolves - when he escaped punishment - United stopper Onana recklessly charged from his goal to take out a member of the opposition and this time he paid the price. 

Although referee John Brooks missed the flashpoint, the VAR assistant Peter Bankes stepped in to rightly award the Clarets a penalty, which Amdouni converted with little fuss. 

The hard-earned point moved Burnley to within two points of fourth-bottom Nottingham Forest - who travel Turf Moor on the final day of the season.

As a Manchester United fan, I am absolutely livid with the result. We dominated the game and were in control until that stupid mistake from Casemiro. It's frustrating to see our team constantly shoot themselves in the foot with these mistakes. We need to be more disciplined and focused in these crucial moments. Credit to Burnley for taking advantage of our errors and converting the penalty, but it's a bitter pill to swallow. Hopefully, we can bounce back and secure our spot in the Premier
