the clarets applied their usual formula: direct play; aggression and intensity. The first 30 minutes proved them right as the Mancunians; under serious pressure; struggled to threaten the Kingdom’s sixth-best defense. However; the series of punches ended in defeating the Lancashire Wall. Paul Pogba found the error twenty minutes from time and placed a volley that deflected and ended his race in the net (71st minute).e). It took that small win for Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men to score.

Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani tried a lot but often hit the edge; hampered by a well-organized defense. And when the frame didn’t slip or the attempt wasn’t countered; Nick Pope fended off a miracle ball rolled up by the Frenchman (45′).e). Harry Maguire could also have scored; but his header was disallowed for a foul on Erik Pieters (36th minute).e). Despite the thrill caused by the supersub Matěj Vydra (87e); United went three points clear of Liverpool before moving to Anfield.
