MAN OF THE MATCH?

Greenwood's brace helps Man Utd reduce gap to Man City

Mason Greenwood's brace and a late Edinson Cavani strike earned Manchester United a 3-1 victory over Burnley at Old Trafford.

Burnley's Chris Wood found the net in the first minute but the goal was disallowed for offside, before Paul Pogba forced goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell into a flying save nine minutes later.

Man Utd did open the scoring three minutes into the second half when Bruno Fernandes dummied Marcus Rashford's cross for Greenwood to slot in at the far post.

But that lead lasted only two minutes as James Tarkowski headed Ashley Westwood's corner past Dean Henderson.

Greenwood became United's joint-highest scoring teenager in Premier League history, equalling Wayne Rooney's 15, when he doubled his tally with a deflected strike six minutes from time.

Cavani then tapped in from close range in stoppage time to confirm a fifth straight league victory for the Red Devils, who are on 66 points, eight points behind leaders Manchester City with six matches to play.

Burnley stay 17th with 33 points from 32 matches.
