Paul Pogba’s Strike Puts Manchester United Top Of The Premier League

Published

Paul Pogba volleyed in the winning goal as Manchester United moved top of the Premier League by winning 1-0 at Burnley.

United only needed a point on Tuesday to move above champions Liverpool ahead of the two teams’ crunch clash at Anfield this weekend.

But the resurgent Pogba converted Marcus Rashford’s cross with 19 minutes left to ensure United moved three points clear of their great rivals.

Burnley defended well but did not manage a single shot on target, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had a first-half goal Harry Maguire goal disallowed.

There were a couple of late scares for United, with James Tarkowski squandering an opportunity and Maguire not penalised amid claims of handball, but they held on with only late injuries to Martial – who had a last-gasp shot saved by Pope – and Nemanja Matic dampening the mood.
