Powell clashed with home fans after a game which saw Burnley's Kieran Trippier sent off for deliberate handball just 15 minutes in.

Johnnie Jackson's penalty was saved, but the visitors won the game thanks to a second-half Danny Haynes goal.

Powell said: "There was a lot of industrial language and we know that that happens at games from the fans to me and my players, I responded and there were some choice words but I won't elaborate on it because it is gone now.

"Tensions and emotions run high and I understand that but of course if they feel my language was wrong then I feel it was two-fold. I shook a supporters hand at the end and we move on."

Of the game he said: "It's a real tough place to come and they have been doing very well at home since Sean Dyche came in so we knew it would be a tough game.

"We've come away from a hard-fought game, with some contentious issues, and got the three points which you have got to do in the Championship because it is quite an unforgiving league.

"It was a well-worked goal and when we had to be professional and see the game out I thought we did that and we got the got the clean sheet which was pleasing."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
