Pogba Late Goal Sends Manchester United To The Top

A Paul Pogba volley was enough to secure a much needed Manchester United win away at Burnley on Tuesday evening.

It was the hosts who started the brighter of the two at Turf Moor, but United soon grew into the game and got on top before too long had passed, with Bruno Fernandes and Anthony Martial having early chances.

United looked to have taken the lead before half time, but Harry Maguire was seen to have committed a foul as he climbed to head home.

Burnley then had to camp out in their own half for much of the second half until Pogba struck in the 71st minute. Marcus Rashford picked out the Frenchman on the edge of the area and his well-taken volley deflected past Nick Pope.

Matej Vydra had more than his fair share of chances to draw Burnley level, but he wasn’t able to capitalise.

The win sees United open up a three-point lead at the top of the Premier League table, clear of rivals and champions Liverpool ahead of their meeting on Sunday.
