Managers Reaction

Man United boss Ralf Rangnick: “We scored three goals. The second one that was disallowed, I watched it in the locker room. The linesman flagged for a foul but he flagged 10 seconds after the incident. It was a very soft decision, I must say. But again we played an excellent first half, I thought. We totally dominated the game, scored three goals but two were disallowed.”

Burnley boss Sean Dyche said: “I just reminded them of the belief I have in them. We were too direct in the first half and we had to change. Second half we were trying to progress, trying to be on the front foot but also stay defensively organised. I was very pleased with the mix. All you can ask as a manager is a reaction and we certainly gave a reaction.”
