Manchester United went into the game against Burnley as heavy favourites. Burnley had two United academy aces in their starting lineup and both of them gave in a brilliant account of their growth and skill-set as Burnley came away with a point.

But, Tom Heaton, in particular, stole the show. It is hard for opposition goalkeepers to eclipse David De Gea in terms of performance but the former United shot-stopper kept almost every shot at bay earning a clean sheet on his return to Old Trafford.

The pick of his saves was a brilliant stop with his body as Zlatan unleashed a sumptuous volley from just outside the six-yard box with Heaton also taking a hit in the process.

Heaton was congratulated by De Gea after the full-time whistle for his heroics on the day which leaves Manchester United winless in the last 4 league games.
