Burnley 0 Manchester United 2 The Clarets were unable to halt Manchester United’s relentless Premier League run as first-half goals from Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney gave the former champions the points at Turf Moor

   Jose Mourinho’s side hasn’t lost a league fixture since October and are now unbeaten in 23 games – the best mid-season run in the competition since United themselves went undefeated for 24 games in 2010/11.

   And in truth, Burnley never really looked like ending that sequence on a difficult afternoon for Sean Dyche’s side in front of a season’s best crowd of 21,870.

   The Clarets’ record of 10 home wins is up with the best in the division but, for once, they were unable to seriously test top-class opposition as United didn’t have to find top gear to move within one point of the Champions League places.

   And having conceded two uncharacteristically 'soft' goals to slip to a third defeat in six games against top-six opposition, Burnley were left possibly needing something more themselves to make sure they keep the bottom three places at arm’s length.

   The Clarets had their striking options reduced by the injury-enforced absence of Sam Vokes, meaning a return to starting duty for Andre as Burnley looked to extend a proud unbeaten home Premier League record against the 20-time English champions.
