Burnley 0 Manchester United 1: Martial keeps up winning run

Burnley 0 Manchester United 1: Martial keeps up winning run

Anthony Martial's ruthlessness in front of goal this season continued during Manchester United's 1-0 win over Burnley as the Frenchman provided the decisive touch in the second half to hand Jose Mourinho's men their fourth straight win.

Having failed to register a shot on target in the first half, Martial fired the victor in off the crossbar nine minutes after the break as United picked up their second win since City's first top-flight loss of the campaign at Liverpool last Sunday. "We're quite a long way off that but the numbers have jumped the last couple of years, so who knows?"

It's the Premier League match between Burnley and Manchester United at Turf Moor.

Anthony Martial scored the only goal of the game as United secured a narrow victory over the Clarets, who slipped down to eighth in the table and stretched their search for a win to eight games in all competitions.

Chris Smalling and Phil Jones line up together at centre-back for United once again with Eric Bailly still injured.

"We are definitely a team that has improved, in my opinion". Normally we don't concede many goals.

Alexis Sanchez's huge wages, should his deal to Manchester United be completed, will cause inflation in the game with an impact on smaller clubs, Burnley manager Sean Dyche said on Thursday.

Dyche said in his post-match press conference: "I thought the performance was very good".

Mourinho added, "I think he's happy, he's happy the way the team is playing - very adapted to him". Then we put ourselves in a position where we have to fight, but we did.

"You can have a tough run like we have had and lots of different margins can define a game - decisions, injuries".

Meanwhile, when asked about potentially signing Everton's Aaron Lennon, Dyche told the BBC: "Aaron Lennon is a possibility, there are a few players we have been linked with so we will see".
