Is that the final whistle I hear? Yes it is. It is game over for this live commentary - head over to this page for all the Old Trafford fallout. We'll soon find out if Jose Mourinho turns up at his news conference...

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Jose Mourinho has not showed up for his post-match television interviews. Assistant boss Rui Faria is the man sent to face the cameras instead. He says referee Mark Clattenburg did "fantastic work", wonder if puppetmaster Jose told him to say that...

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

United had a whopping 37 shots at the target. That's more than you see in average episode of Narcos...

Daley Blind hasn't enlightened us as to which appeal he thought was a penalty. Maybe just any one of them will have done.

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Manchester United defender Daley Blind: "Frustrated is the right word when you've created so many chances. Their keeper did a good job but I think we have to look at ourselves. I was far away from the penalty situations but I think one of them was definitely a penalty."

Burnley keeper Tom Heaton: "We came with a game plan, put in incredible shift and hung in there. Much has been made about our away form but what a place to come and get our first point."

On his save from Ibrahimovic: "I knew I had two men behind me on the line so I thought I'd get out, close the space and spread. Thankfully it has hit me but it nearly broke my arm!"

Burnley defender Michael Keane: "I knew it would be weird coming back here, but I came here fully focused like the rest of the lads. And it showed with that performance."

On Heaton's heroics: "He's been unbelievable in the last few weeks. We know we are tough to break down but when we are broken down we know we have got a top-class keeper behind us."

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

A couple of Burnley players are down in the Old Trafford tunnel speaking about their heroics. Let's hear from Tom Heaton and Michael Keane who are both ex-United youngsters of course...

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

That is Burnley's first away point of the season. And what a place to grab it. The Clarets move up to 13th in the Premier League table with the draw.

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

But one pocket of Old Trafford is not unhappy. The away end is still packed as the Burnley fans salute their plucky players.

FULL-TIME

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

All over! Boos ring around the majority of Old Trafford as the home players swarm over referee Mark Clattenburg at the final whistle.

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Sean Dyche is furiously tapping his watch. Five minutes is up...

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Another penalty appeal! Paul Pogba reckons his cross strikes a Burnley hand. More chance of Jose Mourinho coming on and scoring than that being given.

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

A loose ball finds it way into Tom Heaton's hands. He clutches the bag of leather tighter than he'd hold his new-born. Tick tock...

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Daley Blind stands over the ball. He pulls it short to Wayne Rooney... He blasts it over the bar from 15 yards. Was that United's final chance?

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Manchester United win a free-kick in the right channel, about level with the penalty spot. The box is like the dancefloor at a school disco, packed as everyone jostles for position....

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

All eyes are on the fourth official now. How much time for Burnley to hang on? Five minutes...

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

It is not your day Manchester United. Paul Pogba dinks a delightful cross in from the left to the far post where Zlatan Ibrahimovic is lurking. The big Swede is unmarked... But he sidefoots wide! Remarkable.

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

United have had 32 shots at the Burnley goal. THIRTY TWO! Luke Shaw is the latest to have a crack, curling just wide from 20 yards.

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Even Daley Blind is having a pop now. His effort takes a deflection and almost sneaks in.

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Into the final five. Can Manchester United finally break down this stubborn Burnley side?

SUBSTITUTION

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Is this a sign of Burnley's intentions? Johann Berg Gudmundsson comes off with George Boyd jogging on.

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Burnley send up the big lads from the back but United head clear. Moments later Paul Pogba is booked for a high foot on Matt Lowton.

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

The home frustrations are starting to boil over. Marcos Rojo throws his arms in the air after being lured into committing a silly foul on Ashley Barnes about 30 yards from home.

SUBSTITUTION

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Last roll of the tactical dice from the banished Jose Mourinho. He turns to Memphis Depay, with Marcus Rashford the man to be hooked.

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

United hogging the ball, but doing little with it. They can't break down Burnley's two banks of four.

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

After those Burnley forays forward, we're back to type. Manchester United are attacking, every red shirt other than Matteo Darmian is in the opposition half.

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Ashley Barnes is back in the thick of the action. But this is far from glorious. He outmuscles Luke Shaw on the left flank, then loses his composure to shank his cross straight out of play. Sunday League football is that.

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Ashley Barnes can be handful with his physicality and he climbs above a motionless United defence to meet Johann Berg Gudmundsson's curling right-wing cross. Wide.

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Burnley have been very conservative so far, a tactic which - largely thanks to Tom Heaton - has paid off. Time to throw off the shackles?

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

I feel sorry for the bloke who is having to run up and down the flight of stairs between Jose Mourinho and the home dugout. That wasn't in the job description. Wonder what the message is? Don't panic and the goal will come?

'Heaton like Peter Schmeichel'

Danny Mills

Ex-England defender on Final Score

Heaton has been absolutely outstanding - that shot has almost ripped his arm off!

It was almost like watching Peter Schmeichel at Old Trafford.

SUBSTITUTIONS

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Here is Wayne Rooney. And here is Marouane Fellaini. Double trouble for Burnley? Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata are the men whose numbers are up.

Manchester United are preparing for a change. Wayne Rooney is taking off his tracky top...

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Watching that second yellow card again, it is actually quite harsh on Ander Herrera. Looked like he slipped. Burnley don't care.

They pour forward and have a penalty shout of their own! Ashley Barnes tumbles, but Mark Clattenburg shakes his head.

RED CARD - Ander Herrera

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Uh oh. Jose Mourinho's afternoon is getting worse. Ander Herrera is told to take an early bath, receiving a second yellow for a late tackle. Can Burnley make this numerical advantage count?

HITS THE WOODWORK

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

It just won't go in for Manchester United! They have done everything but score.

The Red Devils hit the woodwork twice in a matter of seconds. Juan Mata hits the right-hand post with a shot on the turn, then Zlatan Ibrahimovic's header loops off a Burnley defender and onto the bar.

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

In the middle of all those Manchester United chances I forgot to tell you that Burnley made a change. Striker Ashley Barnes comes on for his first appearance of the season after injury, replacing Andre Gray.

'Manchester United have played well'

Danny Mills

Ex-England defender on Final Score

I think United have actually played quite well, the only thing they haven't done is scored.

Man Utd 0-0 Burnley

Manchester United might as well get out the groundsheet and start a fire. They're camped in Burnley's half.
