Martial Rescues Three Points For United




Manchester United closed to within nine points of leaders Manchester City, for a few hours at least, thanks to Anthony Martial’s well-taken goal at Turf Moor.

The Frenchman’s second-half strike was one of only two efforts on target from the visitors in a display that was effective rather than entertaining.

After a dour first half, Martial fired in off the underside of the bar after good work in the build-up from Romelu Lukaku.

According to BBC, Burnley pressed forward in search of a leveller, coming closest when Johann Berg Gudmundsson’s free-kick hit the bar.

But United goalkeeper David de Gea rarely looked like blotting a fourth successive clean sheet despite a siege on his goal in the final five minutes.
