Paul Pogba was left out of Manchester United’s squad tonight with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisting the France midfielder was not ready to play but Ole's men might not have needed him, as they easily saw Burnley off.
As it happened...
GOAL! Burnley 0-1 Manchester United (Martial, 44)
An easy finish for Martial, actually.
Taylor lost the ball deep in his own half, and Pereira was there to attack. He then slipped in Martial very calmly, and the Frenchman got the ball out of his feet and slotted home from close range, a one-touch and a side-foot finish past Pope.
DISALLOWED GOAL! (Martial, 51)
Is it 2-0? No!
Anthony Martial slotted the ball home and the Manchester United fans celebrated briefly, but the goal was quickly chalked off after it appeared as if Martial knocked over James Tarkowski just before scoring.
GOAL! Burnley 0-2 Manchester United (Rashford 90+5)
Daniel James is the man breaking once again, and he slipped in Rashford, who rounded the goalkeeper, but fell over and just about slipped the ball into the net to seal the win.
Final score: Burnley 0-2 Manchester United
With these results, Ole’s men move 5th with 31 points, while Burnley is 13th with 24 points.
Manchester United will travel to face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on 1st January, while Burnley hosts Aston Villa on the same day.
