Paul Pogba’s second-half volley ensured Manchester United edged past a dogged Burnley to go three points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

Following the first half with several controversial incidents at Turf Moor, Pogba found the net with a deflected effort off a Marcus Rashford cross 20 minutes from time to ensure United leapfrog Liverpool in the standings.

The hard-fought win is a huge boost for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, who head to Anfield at the weekend in what could end up being a key match in a title race United have clawed themselves back into.

United held their nerve following an opening 45 minutes which saw Luke Shaw narrowly avoid a red card following a VAR review of two separate incidents which lasted over five minutes, while referee Kevin Friend controversially ruled out a Harry Maguire header to leave the visitors fuming at the interval.

However, United turned the screw from the start of the second half, and Pogba’s match-winning display offers the Red Devils the chance to open up a six-point lead over champions Liverpool this weekend.
