Given Manchester United’s midweek participation in the Champions League, this game took place in the somewhat novel / unusual 8pm slot on Saturday evening.

This was a really strong Burnley performance. Every performance looks much better than the last, the defence looks much more solid, and but for Onana in goal, and his far post, Burnley would have left this game with at least a point.

The stats below speak for themselves, Burnley dominated possession and had an even share of the chances. The irony in losing to a Man Utd long ball should not be lost. ‘Kings of all Europe’ they sang - but not even the best team from Manchester to visit the Turf this year.
