Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer's winning streak came to an end when they hosted Burnley on Tuesday.

Manchester United played out a 2-2 draw with the The Clarets at Old Trafford as they failed to close the gap on Chelsea who are in the 4th spot in the Premier League table.

However, the United interim manager hailed his side for fighting from two goals down to seal a point.

The Norwegian said as the club's official website reported: “The way we came back was fantastic. We are happy with a point and we could have got three by the end. We just ran out of time and we started too late, with the urgency that we needed. That is a learning curve. But now you have your answer - can they come back if they go one down, or two down, even? So I am very happy with the response.

”That's Man United. We know we could have performed better in the first 60-70 minutes but, then again, the reaction was brilliant and, to get two goals after 87 minutes, that's fantastic and that's a testament to the character of everyone. Never give up. Never give up at this club.“

On chances created by the Red Devils, he said: ”You have to find a way to break teams down and decision-making of course could have been better at times, because we know they're strong. They wanted us to cross the ball, so when we started playing our way into the box I thought we looked dangerous. Juan made some good runs and with Ash down the side I think we created loads of almost chances. And then again, we got two in the end.“
