Manchester United’s third draw in 10 games left them in eighth place, on 15 points from 10 games. Manchester City top the table on 23 points ahead of Arsenal and Liverpool on goal difference.
“We controlled the game for 90 minutes. Not to score a goal was unbelievable,” Herrera told British media.
We have the luck against us right now but we have to keep playing like we did here and against Stoke and hopefully one day we can get a fair result – 5-0 or 6-0.” Sandwiched between the two home draws were a 0-0 draw at Liverpool and a 4-0 defeat at Chelsea.
Herrera was shown a second yellow card against Burnley for a clumsy challenge. It was the Spaniard’s first sending off since moving to the English top flight.
“The first yellow card I bent my knees, I didn’t want to kick the opponent,” he said. “The second, I slid in. But I don’t want to complain because I don’t want to be banned for more games,” he added.
“The only thing I can say is that I didn’t want to make those fouls. I am not a violent player. I slipped.”

During the second start of the game, Jose Mourinho’s men had 37 attempts against Burnley but could not find a way past the inspired Tom Heaton, ending a month that started with a 1-1 draw at home to Stoke in a similarly frustrating manner.
Herrera says “both draws felt like defeats” yet remains confident United are going in the right direction, even if fortune is seemingly not on their side.
“Today there are no words. I think we have to get the heads up because we have done a lot of good things.
“But it’s very, very hard to go home now and I am not going to be able to sleep, for sure, because I am going to have those missed chances playing around in my head.”
