Mourinho in the stands as United held 0-0 by Burnley

MANCHESTER: Jose Mourinho watched from the stands in the second half as Manchester United endured a goalless draw in the English Premier League on Saturday, with goalkeeper Tom Heaton helping Burnley snatch a point against his former club.

United bounced back from a humiliating defeat at Chelsea with an English League Cup derby win against Manchester City midweek, but hopes of a follow-up victory in the league were thwarted by Heaton, a United academy graduate.

Heaton left United six years ago without a first-team appearance to his name and, now 30, returned to haunt United on Saturday, producing a stunning display in the Burnley goal as a pulsating match ended 0-0.

Referee Mark Clattenburg gave Ander Herrera a harsh-looking second yellow card, having already sent off Mourinho.

The United manager was furious at his side not receiving a penalty after Jon Flanagan's challenge on Matteo Darmian just before halftime. Mourinho sat in the stands rather than the dugout.

With Mourinho passing notes down to the bench, United lost a player when Herrera — booked in the first half for a challenge on Dean Marney — was given a second yellow for catching the Burnley midfielder again. It looked harsh, considering the Spaniard seemed to slip.
