Darren Fletcher reacts to Man Utd loss to Burnley.

The Red Devils were booed off the pitch last night after goals from Chris Wood and Jay Rodriguez secured Burnley's first ever Premier League win at Old Trafford.


Manchester United's most recent loss to Burnley has made the atmosphere "toxic" at Old Trafford, says former midfield star Darren Fletcher.


The Red Devils were booed off the pitch last night after goals from Chris Wood and Jay Rodriguez secured Burnley's first ever Premier League win at Old Trafford.


The defeat leaves United six points behind Chelsea, who sit in the final Champions League spot.


"The scenes in the stadium weren't good," said the five-time Premier League winner.


"The chanting, the atmosphere really turned toxic for the first time."


While speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live the Scot added: "At the minute you can see with every setback these youngsters are just sinking.


"The scrutiny and the pressure that these kids are under - it was difficult for me coming into the team and I was surrounded by world-class players left, right and centre.


"These lads don't have that support network around them and they are really finding it difficult.


"It might make a few of them, but at the same time it will probably break a few of them as well, which is really disappointing."
