I reckon Hazard mis-ran and mishit that and got lucky.
Yeah, total mis-hit!
Should have passed, the greedy git.
He probably barely knew where he was and just lashed at it
I believe you Jim
Izzy Brown was at it too with his first touch of the game.
Good game, you got to admire the way Burnley kept their shape , attitude and game plan for the ninety minutes. Exceptional free kick otherwise we'd have had the three points I think. If City win our lead is down to 8 .
I reckon Robbie Brady mishit and misguided that and got lucky
A decent draw I think. They proved to be a lot tougher opponents than that shower last week.
I was genuinely surprised...the first 15 minutes or so it looked nailed on we'd win. They're really good at home.
All eyes on City tomorrow but I'd have snapped your arm off if you offered me 8 points ahead at this point in the season, and that's if they win.
He's nicked me line!
You're my inspiration
A Ciry supporter informed me that they were 'only' 8 points behind us .
Good game that. Thought they were going to nick one back at the end and up with penalties.
Excellent mis-hit by Kante, eh JimW !
Was a great encounter first half until the sending off. Spoiled it a bit for the neutral but they were all chipping away at Hazard so can't really complain.
See my post on the united thread for my views on Utds 'performance '.
Great to see Frank Lampard give the deranged and deluded views of Phil Neville a sharp reality check in the half time summary .
We should have put our other chances away , ok De Gea made two top saves first half but Diego should have put the tie to sleep in the second half. Hopefully Rojas stamp on Hazard will get reviewed.
My tip on Kante for player of the year looks better everyday
Excellent saves from both goalies last night kept the score down. Kanté is just getting stronger as the season goes on.
I hope you had a few quid on your early season tip The39thStep
Just the customary fiver, might cover my losses from Cheltenham
That was a tough game against Stokealthough after we scored the second we could have had another one or two. Mark Hughes tweaked Man Utds game plan , instead of kicking Hazard he set his team out to kick Costa. We were cruising until the penalty which however soft was a penalty and needless. Stoke got in the game in patches but I can't remember Coutois having to do much. Alonso was calm personified and Costa worked his socks off. 13 points clear .
Yup. Hard game. Glad Hazard got a rest after that mauling last game.
Conte's passion is infectious. It's running through the whole team now. I don't think I've ever seen Cahill celebrate like that.
Well to be fair he got himself out of jail
I think we can do better than Cahill, to be honest.
I'm sure Conte will be eyeing up some tough nut Italian defenders over the summer. Meantime Cahill can only get better given the company he's playing alongside.
To be fair Cahill and Stones are probably the best two English centrehalves in the league. Out of the back three his passing is the worst and I have seen him get turned one on one a few times over the years however he's good in the air, blocks well and chips in with goals.

I remember this guy. We always seemed to lose 5-2 when he played but this article proves different.
Well that was a nail biter and fair play to City who gave their all in a fantastic game. City just couldn't live with Hazard though and Conte has built a terrific team spirit in which everyone does their job. I never thought I would say it but we have definatley missed Moses . Well done boys.
Yes a real nail biter. Nice to see Zouma back.
Just Spurs to shake off now. They have the look and feel of a title winning team but so do we, and we have a bit more experience which might prove decisive.
