Blake stuns United as Burnley end 33-year wait

<strong>BURNLEY (1)</strong> vs <strong>MANCHESTER UTD (0)</strong><br /><br />MANCHESTER UNITED boss Sir Alex Ferguson was aghast after Burnley stunned the champions and recorded their first top-flight win for 33 years.<br /><br />Veteran Robbie Blake volleyed the decisive goal but the Premier League newcomers were equally indebted to goalkeeper Brian Jensen for saving Michael Carrick&rsquo;s penalty.<br /><br />&ldquo;We&rsquo;re disappointed,&rdquo; said Ferguson. &ldquo;It wasn&rsquo;t a great performance but maybe it was just a night for Burnley. So many things happened in that penalty box it was just amazing we didn&rsquo;t get one.&rdquo;<br /><br />England outcast Michael Owen, making his first competitive United start since his free transfer from Newcastle, had a goal disallowed and missed another chance as the visitors began strongly.<br /><br />But Burnley settled and in the 18th minute striker Blake, 33, capitalised on a loose ball to launch a half-volley that flashed past United goalkeeper Ben Foster.<br /><br />Owen wasted a header before a foul on Patrice Evra presented Carrick with a spot-kick, only for Jensen to fling himself to his right and save.<br /><br />And Jensen saved again from Ji-Sung Park and Ryan Giggs as Burnley marked Turf Moor&rsquo;s Premier League bow with a famous triumph.
