Mason Greenwood was the star man for Manchester United scoring twice in their 3-1 victory over Burnley on Sunday.

Mason Greenwood’s second half strike had been cancelled out by James Tarkowski, which was the 1000th Premier League goal conceded by the Red Devils.

Greenwood then again proved how valuable he is to United on the right, and possibly to England, with another, albeit deflected, goal. Cavani then made sure of the result with a stoppage time goal.

It was not all easy-going for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, though, as there was a scare in the first minute for the hosts.

Dean Henderson came racing off his line to meet a floated ball from Matt Lowton, only to be beaten in the air by Chris Wood.

Fortunately for the Red Devils, he was flagged offside after heading into the net.

Gradually, United began to gain the upper hand. McTominay had a shot blocked before Paul Pogba timed his leap to perfection to head an Aaron Wan-Bissaka cross towards the top corner, only for Peacock-Farrell to tip the ball on to the outside of the post.


Greenwood put United in front in the second half

Burnley’s five-man midfield was sitting deep but they were a threat, with Wood forcing Henderson into action with a low shot after a quick counter-attack, while Bruno Fernandes drilled wide of Peacock Farrell’s left-hand post at the other end moments later.

Rashford was allowed to cut in from the left before drilling towards goal which was palmed over by Peacock-Farrell, while the two were involved as United’s appeals for a penalty were turned down.

Rashford seemed to expect a collision and went down after brushing the ball past Peacock-Farrell but there appeared to be no contact between the pair as United’s shouts for a spot-kick were waved away.

Greenwood was unable to get the final touch to Rashford’s ball along the area, while Wood had a similar chance on the stroke of half-time, with the teams going in at the break goalless.


Tarkowski had got Burnley back in it minutes after United had scored

United brought on Cavani at half-time, with Fred making way, and they went ahead within three minutes of the resumption as Fernandes allowed Rashford’s square pass to drift through his legs, teeing up Greenwood to score.

However, it took just two minutes for Burnley to level, with Tarkowski heading home from Ashley Westwood’s inswinging corner.

The hosts pulled ahead again with six minutes to go as Greenwood’s strike from United’s right hand side took a cruel deflection off Jack Cork, wrong-footing Peacock-Farrell before going into the net.

Cavani then added a goal in stoppage time to make it 3-1 and wrap up the points.
