Football fans are not fully convinced that a Burnley fan called Mike Litoris died last year aged 69.

In a showing of respect, Turf Moor held a minute silence on Tuesday night prior to their match against Manchester United.

It was observed for all the Burnley fans that had lost their lives in the last year as the names were listed on BT Sport.

But it appears that one name might have sneaked its way onto the Memoriam with fans believing some trickery is afoot.

One of the names listed under ‘M’ included ‘Mike Litoris’, who allegedly died at the age of 69.

And a fan tweeted his lack of belief, saying: “Burnley fans submitted names of those that were lost in the last year.

“I think I’m going to question Mike Litoris 69. If I’m wrong I supremely apologise to his family.”

Another wrote: “Think the 69 is the giveaway but some people getting in a flap about it.”

And a third said: “Mike litoris could still be alive, just nobody can find him.”

Burnley put on a show for those in attendance at Turf Moor after managing to claw back a point against United in a roaring Lancashire derby.

The home fans were in full voice in the swirling northern wind as the Clarets drew 1-1 against their more illustrious opponents.

Paul Pogba had put the visitors in front with a brilliant finish high into the net after a cutback from Luke Shaw.

But they failed to build on their dominance in the opening half and Burnley came out all guns blazing after the break.

And just two minutes into the second half, Jay Rodriguez grabbed a much-deserved equaliser after some exquisite play from Wout Weghorst on his home debut.
