Manchester United made it three successive wins to nil in the Premier League with a 1-0 victory at Burnley today.
After failing to produce a single shot on target in the first half, Anthony Martial scored the game’s only goal within 10 minutes of the restart with a fine finish after good play by Romelu Lukaku with the assist.
Victory moves us within nine points of Manchester City before they host Newcastle United in this evening’s Premier League game. In the process David de Gea kept his 14th clean sheet of the season – the most in the division currently.
The Spanish goalkeeper was well protected by the likes of Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Nemanja Matic as Burnley didn’t produce any serious threat today. Ashley Young replaced Luke Shaw at left-back on his return from suspension today.
Chelsea remain three points behind us after their 4-0 thrashing of Brighton & Hove Albion earlier today whilst Liverpool have the opportunity to join the Blues when they travel to Swansea City on Monday night.
