Burnley pull off shock win over Manchester United

Burnley pulled off a shock 1-0 win against Premier League champions Manchester United last night in the Clarets' first home game in the top flight in 33-years.

Robbie Blake was one of the heroes for the home side when he smashed a cracking volley past Ben Foster in the United goal midway through the first half.

Michael Carrick had a chance to get last year's winners back on level terms but Burnley keeper Brian Jensen pulled off a brilliant save which his team up for a famous win.

With Michael Owen and Dimitar Berbatov misfiring up front alongside Wayne Rooney it was hard not to think about what a difference Cristiano Ronaldo would have made last night.
