Twitter reacts as Burnley and Paul Robinson so nearly deny Man City

| 26.11.2016

For a while, it looked like the David v Goliath result was on. But thanks to the positional nous of Sergio Aguero, Manchester City managed to come away from Burnley with three points.

A Dean Marney effort – his first in the Premier League for seven years – had Pep Guardiola sweating on his first visit to Turf Moor however, and the Spaniard had Aguero to thank for saving his blushes.

While a home win would been a surprise in itself, the inclusion of 37-year-old Paul Robinson in goal for his first Premier League start in four years would have really made headlines.

The former Blackburn stopper made a number of saves, but Aguero’s scrappy double was enough to end a valiant performance from the hosts.

Here’s how it went down on Twitter…

There was plenty of surprise before the game, when Robinson was announced in the Clarets’ XI…

Robinson didn’t waste much time making an impact, supplying the assist for Marney’s opener…

Aguero levelled before the break, before Burnley came undone with some manic defending…

The football purists at Bleacher Report didn’t feel much joy from Aguero’s scrappy second effort…

And finally, Burnley fans can blame the Premier League for jinxing them…

The only Premier League side he’s now failed to score against is Bolton, FYI.
