A stunning goal from Marcus Rashford sees United cruise into the quarter-finals although they were troubled at times by Burnley, who had plenty of chances to get on the score sheet. A solid return to action ahead of the resumption of the Premier League.
We’re back to normal added time after the World Cup with only an additional minute at the end of the half. Manchester United have controlled the majority of the game and lead trough a lovely worked goal tucked away by Christian Eriksen.
However, there has been a lack of cutting edge that moment aside and Burnley have certainly been threatening when going forward. McTominay does well to win back possession and drive up the pitch before picking out Martial./ The Frenchman crafts space for himself in the box and unleashes a powerful effort but is denied nicely by Peacock-Farrell.
Manchester United’s World Cup participants have been sharper than some of those who were in Spain for the training camp. Martial and Garnacho have both shown frustration at their bluntness. Fernandes has excelled on his return, Casemiro has slotted in well and Eriksen got the goal.
There remains no logical explanation as to why United loaned in Dubravka. Heaton should be starting ahead of him. Benson again goes close as he forces Dubravka into a fine save with a curling effort before the goalkeeper misses the ball after the resulting corner and Casemiro has to be alert to clear the ball off the line. United need to wake up.
