Burnley 0-1 Man Utd

Match summary

20 Jan 2018
Burnley v Manchester United

Manchester United cut the gap to Premier League leaders Manchester City to nine points with a 1-0 win over Burnley.

Anthony Martial scored the only goal at Turf Moor to extend United's unbeaten run to eight matches. 

There were no shots on target in the first half, with Ashley Young, back from suspension, curling the best chance wide.

Nine minutes after the break Romelu Lukaku passed for Martial to smash in off the crossbar and score in three consecutive PL appearances for the first time.

Almost immediately Burnley came close to an equaliser but Johann Berg Gudmundsson's free-kick hit the woodwork and bounced over. 

The Clarets kept pushing in Sean Dyche's 100th PL match as a manager but, despite a scare from James Tarkowski, United held on for the win.
