Manchester United conceded another late goal as Zeki Amdouni's penalty secured a 1-1 draw for Burnley at Old Trafford.

Antony's first league goal of the season with 11 minutes left had put United ahead, but self-inflicted errors cost them as Andre Onana gave away a penalty for cleaning out substitute Amdouni after an inexplicable headed back-pass by Casemiro.

Onana was the hero for United in the first half, keeping out Lyle Foster twice when a goal seemed more likely. However, his error, the second this week, proved fatal for his side's chances of claiming their first back-to-back league wins since February.

Burnley remain in the relegation zone but Amdouni's late goal moves them to within two points of safety. Vincent Kompany's side will be frustrated they did not take any of their first-half chances with just three games to go.

United failed to cement their grip on sixth as Newcastle moved to within one point of them a 5-1 win over Sheffield United. The two sides meet at Old Trafford on May 15 - live on Sky Sports - in a game that could decide who qualifies for the Europa League.
