We scored three goals – Rangnick, Maguire laments after Man United’s 1-1 draw with Burnley

Manchester United manager, Ralf Rangnick and captain, Harry Maguire have blamed the match officials after their 1-1 draw with Burnley in the Premier League on Tuesday.

They claimed Manchester United had two goals disallowed in the game but only Paul Poga’s opener stood, with referee Mike Dean ruling out the other two.

Raphael Varane scored through a powerful header but the goal was ruled out after Maguire was ruled offside when he blocked Jay Rodriguez.

Then moments later, the Red Devils United had another goal ruled out shortly after Pogba’s opener. Pogba was adjudged to have fouled Erik Pieters while trying to control the ball.

And Rangnick said the Pogba incident was a ‘soft decision’, while Maguire could not find good reasons for both disallowed goals.

“We scored three goals! That is different from Friday. The second one that was disallowed, the linesman flagged foul but 10 seconds after that incident. This was a very soft decision I must say,” Rangnick said.

“We scored three goals in the first half, so I couldn’t blame the team for not having a killer instinct in the first half,” he said.

Maguire added: “I think he gave it offside. He said it wasn’t a foul. Interfering with play, I don’t know. I don’t think Rodriguez would have affected the goal.

“I think the other one for Paul Pogba’s judged to have fouled. It was definitely not a foul.”

United have now dropped to fifth in the Premier League table, with West Ham returning to fourth after 1-0 win over Watford.

Red Devils will face Southampton on Saturday
