“Horrific…” – Ben Foster slams two Man United players after Burnley draw



| Last Updated:


Former Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster believes there were two players at fault for the equalising goal against Burnley on the weekend.

The Reds dropped points once again on the weekend which confirmed the inevitable – that they cannot finish in the top four.

Erik ten Hag’s side have not won back-to-back Premier League fixtures since mid-February.

Antony scored his first league goal of the season against Burnley on Saturday, which looked like it could be the winning goal.

However, once again, the Reds conceded a late goal to drop points and this time it was from an avoidable situation.

Vincent Kompany’s men were awarded a penalty late on after André Onana clattered into their forward, yet, Foster believes the goalkeeper is not the only one at fault.

He also highlighted the role of Casemiro, who decided to head the ball back into the danger area before Onana committed the foul.

“The header back is horrific,” Foster told The United Stand. “Honestly, I don’t know what you are thinking of trying to do there. Trying to be clever, trying to be too calm and casual and laid back.

“You can’t do that at any minute of the game, from an experienced player as well. I know he’s not a centre-back but still, you just can’t go doing that kind of thing.”

Foster continued: “Then the mistake comes from Onana as well, where I think he as a goalkeeper needs to read that the header back is a loopy one, its a slow one. He can see Wan-Bissaka is underneath it, Maguire’s coming across.

“I think he just has to hold where he is and go ‘right, I’m gonna leave you do deal with this, Wan-Bissaka has got an incredible leap as well.”
