  1. Post update

    Man Utd 3-1 Burnley

    Manchester United have 66 points after 32 Premier League matches. That is the total they finished on in each of the past two seasons.

  2. 'We want to keep progressing'

    FT: Man Utd 3-1 Burnley

    Manchester United

    Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer speaking to Sky Sports: "Very happy with three points, we haven't beat Burnley here since 2015. Good result, five wins on the bounce, that's good form.

    "First half we started OK, got control but we couldn't find the big openings and Burnley made it more of an end-to-end game, bit scrappy because they defended and attacked so well we couldn't get a rhythm. We played and ran in the second half, got chances and got the goal deservedly, you switched off for two seconds for the corner and that's how it is against Burnley."

    On Dean Henderson mistake: "First one is a wake-up call for him, he's a proactive keeper and luckily he was offside so another win and Dean is still learning and maturing."

    On Mason Greenwood: "Fantastic, two very good goals coming in off the left at the moment. I feel his best position is to be more free on the right, face the goal and he showed that today.

    "We've always said this year has to be progress and improvement, we've got as many points as last season and then if we get some more we've got more than last season, that's progress. We want to finish with a trophy in the Europa League, we've got loads of games and loads to focus on."

  3. 'Bad slice of luck'

    FT: Man Utd 3-1 Burnley


    Burnley manager Sean Dyche speaking to Sky Sports: "The performance was good, the mentality was excellent, we altered the shape. It's a difficult place to come and they're in good form. We've come across a few mistakes recently and there wasn't really any mistakes today, they had a bit of luck and it went against us.

    "We took the game on - it's tough coming here but our shape and energy was good. We affected them by getting into the box early and every set piece we looked a threat. They have some top class individuals but the shape was good.

    "Over a season you believe in performances, you take a lucky one but you want to give performances that can win and we've given those performances in recent weeks. They've had some luck and we may have seen the game out for a point if they hadn't had it.

    "We have to look after ourselves, we've earned the right to be here and we will continue to do that. No one will give you anything in football but we have to continue to look after ourselves.

    "Not concerned, just looking at the reality, well versed in the Premier League. You're not going to stroll through a season in the Premier League, we need to tidy up the details but we've had a bad slice of luck today."

  4. 'A bitter pill'

    FT: Man Utd 3-1 Burnley


    Burnley boss Sean Dyche to BBC Sport: "I thought so [we deserved a point]. The energy and shape of our side was good. You have to get that right at these places. We were pretty tidy with our defending apart from a couple of moments.

    "I thought we asked questions and created some really good moments.

    "[The second goal was] a bitter pill. We were in the game and threatening on the break. We were chasing the game after that and left ourselves exposed.

    "The mentality is strong here, you can see that from the players."

    On their relegation battle: "Brighton are there as well – it seems like you never mention them. We’ve worked hard for everything we’ve had in the Premier League."

  5. 'Greenwood mixing up game'

    Man Utd 3-1 Burnley

    Manchester United

    Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to BBC Sport: "You never know [against Burnley], anything can happen in either box. Any time they get a cross in with their quality you've got your heart in your mouth. We built some pressure, especially down the left, wanted to do the right things and we got the goals we wanted.

    "Disappointed we conceded straight away. We knew there'd be long balls, win the first one, win the second one and stop the ball into the box. The delivery was great and we had to work hard again.

    "Very happy for him [Mason Greenwood]. He’s mixing up his game. He goes inside and outside, he's maturing all the time. It's lovely to see. He’s put the work in on the training ground and reaps the rewards. Last season he was young, now he’s had almost two seasons in the first team. Especially in the last three or four months I’ve seen how mature he is on the training ground and he plays with maturity and understanding. He's very creative but plays simple when he has to.

    "[We will] keep concentrating on what we’re doing and keep winning. Keep momentum going. Next game always."

  6. Post update

    Man Utd 3-1 Burnley

    Edinson Cavani has been involved in 10 goals in 21 Premier League games this season (eight goals, two assists).

  7. 'Anything's possible'

    FT: Man Utd 3-1 Burnley

    Manchester United

    Manchester United goalscorer Mason Greenwood speaking to Sky Sports: "It was a hard game, we had good opportunities and their striker was a big threat today, so we had to adapt and we came out on top.

    "They've got a few wins when they've come here to Old Trafford and it's been difficult but when we've played them at Turf Moor we have comfortably beaten them. They were good here but we've come out on top."

    On more goals and appearances: "I keep focussed, I knew my goals would come and kept my head down and I've taken my opportunities."

    On his goals: "I like to do that, cut inside like that. I did it last season but you have to mix it up so defenders don't catch you out. Happy with both of my goals.

    "I'm happy I'm playing a lot, Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] trusts me and I do my best on the pitch and try to help my team-mates and it's showing on the pitch."

    Title race really over? "You can never be sure - they might slip up, we have to concentrate on our next games. Anything's possible, hopefully they [Manchester City] drop some points but we just have to keep focussed on our games."

  8. 'We're still battling away down there'

    Man Utd 3-1 Burnley


    Burnley goalscorer James Tarkowski to Sky Sports: "We were a little bit unlcuky really with the [second United] goal, it took a deflection.

    "We caused them problems all day.

    "It would have been nice to get that early goal. Great mentality to take a team like that on. We're still battling away down there, mentality is the key.

    "We can't rely on other teams to do our job for us. We are still in the fight until mathematically it's done."

  9. Post update

    Man Utd 3-1 Burnley

    Burnley are six points above the relegation zone, but they have a game in hand on Fulham.

  10. 'Burnley still have a fight on their hands'

    FT: Man Utd 3-1 Burnley

    Stephen Warnock

    Ex-Aston Villa and Liverpool defender on BBC Radio 5 Live

    I think Sean Dyche will be disappointed with the way his side conceded the second goal which lost them the game effectively and Manchester United counter-attacked late on to make it look more handsome but Burnley still have a fight on their hands to stay in the league. Are they safe with that Fulham result earlier today, though?

  11. Super sub Cavani

    Man Utd 3-1 Burnley

    Only Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in 1998-99 and Javier Hernandez in 2010-11 (both five) have more Premier League goals as a substitute in a season for United than Cavani's four this season.

    Only Liverpool's Diogo Jota has scored as many goals from the bench in the English top-flight this season.

  12. Post update

    Man Utd 3-1 Burnley

    Stephen Warnock

    Ex-Aston Villa and Liverpool defender on BBC Radio 5 Live

    Counter-attacking at its finest from Manchester United - great work from Edinson Cavani to start the attack off. Great ball to the right hand side and it's how quickly they switch it across the pitch. Into Bruno Fernandes, lovely reverse ball into Donny van de Beek who so unselfishly lays it on a plate for Cavani. Simple tap in - game, set, match for United.


    Man Utd 3-1 Burnley

    It's all over. United leave it late but they've eventually seen off Burnley.

  14. GOAL - Man Utd 3-1 Burnley

    Edinson Cavani

    United counter from the Burnley counter and it's all over.

    Edinson Cavani breaks from the halfway line. He finds Mason Greenwood, who picks out Bruno Fernandes. Then Donny van de Beek lays the ball on a plate for Cavani six yards out.

  15. Post update

    Man Utd 2-1 Burnley

    United have a free-kick and Paul Pogba tries to keep it in the corner.

    Burnley get the ball and quickly counter but Matej Vydra can't take advantage.


    Man Utd 2-1 Burnley

    United really should have finished this now. Mason Greenwood forces another save and then Bruno Fernandes goes too wide with the follow-up and his shot is blocked by a defender.

    Into four minutes of stoppage time.

  17. Post update

    Man Utd 2-1 Burnley

    Scott McTominay almost kills this game off from Mason Greenwood's through ball but it's well saved.


    Man Utd 2-1 Burnley

    Something about a birthday card.

    Burnley defender James Tarkowski stands on the foot of birthday boy Donny van de Beek and gets booked.
