Paul Pogba reveals what Manchester United can learn from last-gasp Burnley draw

 Paul Pogba hailed Manchester United’s spirit as they produced an echo of glories past to rescue a point with a last gasp fightback   But the Old Trafford midfielder pulled no punches as he insisted it still wasn’t good enough from his side, who trailed 2-0 to a Burnley side who hadn’t won at Old Trafford since 1962  Goals from Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood – who struck 10 minutes from time – seemed to have given the little Lancashire club an historic victory on the ground of their aristocratic rivals  But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side showed they know how to fight in adversity, just as they did under his manager of old Sir Alex Ferguson  Incredibly, United had never been behind since the Norwegian arrived just before Christmas, and they seemed to suffer few setbacks in their eight straight victories  But they had to dig deep, with Pogba pulling one back from spot three minutes from the end before United produced an incredible stoppage time barrage which eventually saw Victor Lindelof level after he rammed home from close range  And afterwards, midfield leader Pogba insisted the spirit was right.but not the attitude from the start  “We have to learn from our mistakes and next time start the game differently,” he said  “The manager said to us, you have to start strong and be aggressive because that’s what they were in the first half We played like we were winning 1-0 or 2-0, that’s where we went wrong.  “The comeback was positive but the result was disappointing  “The reaction was good, we didn’t lose, but we dropped two points we could have won ”  Burnley will complain about the penalty decision, with Jesse Lingard winning a soft one as he went down theatrically after Jeff Hendrick merely placed an arm across him  But the draw still keeps Sean Dyche’s side unbeaten in the Premier League since the turn of the year, and takes them further away from the relegation zone
