After a goalless second half, Manchester United have secured the three points at Old Trafford.
Ralf Rangnick’s team are now six games without defeat in the Premier League.
That win lifts United to sixth in the table and level on points with West Ham, who have a marginally better goal difference. Burnley, however, end 2021 in the relegation zone.
McTominay running the show!
Second Half Begins!
We are back on at Old Trafford!
That was a cracker of a first half!

Aaron Lennon is among the scoring.
He wins the ball in the middle of Manchester United’s half, goes on a diagonal run and sends it bouncing into the net from outside the box.
Ronaldoooo – Man U 3-0 Burnley
Scott McTominay is SO close with a stunning effort and Cristiano Ronaldo is there to tap in the rebound.
27′ Goooal – Man U 2 -0 Burnley
Sancho squeezes between two Burnley defenders and sneaks it into the far post.
Manchester United lead 2-0.
8′ Goaaaaal! – Man U 1-0 Burnley
Ronaldo heavy touch trying to control gave McTominay chance to hit it first time from edge of area. Good finish.
