Facundo Ferreyra Scores In Behind Closed Doors Match
A behind closed doors friendly saw goals from Adam Armstrong (2), Callum Roberts and the elusive Facundo Ferreyra beat a Burnley eleven by four goals to one.
The practice match also saw Ryan Taylor play his second comeback match, lasting seventy minutes.
The returning full-back almost then scored but saw his free-kick well saved, before Adam Armstrong took over as the dominant figure in the match and struck a post, before then making it 2-0 with an assist from Callum Roberts on 34 minutes.
It was then three around five minutes before half-time when this time Ferreyra laid the ball off to Armstrong who finished well.
Roberts made it four just after half-time before Burnley quickly scored a consolation.
The strong United line-up closed out the match but failed to add despite their dominance.
