Manchester United have done it! They’ve beaten Burnley to move 3 points of the chasing pack.
The game was tightly contested with Burnley displaying their aerial prowess and physicality on the ball. Sean Dyche team created lots of problems but that lack of quality in the final third proved decisive.
As Burnley squandered chances upon chances, Manchester United $290,000-a-week midfielder Paul Pogba stepped up and who scored a volley which deflected through Pope’s legs off Lowton to make it 1-0.
One nil was the score lie in the 71st minute and so it remained until the final whistle was blow.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will certainly be delighted with his team’s fighting spirit and their collective will to win every single game.
Next up is a trip to Anfield. A fortress which has proved difficult in over 66 games. Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool is very good at home and beating them they is almost impossible even though they’re vulnerable at the back this season.
Getting a draw won’t be bad result, United will certainly be happy with it knowing Liverpool will still draw other games or lose away from home.
