Paul Pogba’s volley puts Manchester United top of Premier League on Tuesday evening at Turf Moor.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men were left frustrated after the first 45 after VAR denied the Red Devils an opening goal in the first half through captain Harry Maguire.
Solskjaer’s side was made to wait until the 71st minute to break the deadlock when Pogba’s volley deflected through Pope’s legs off Lowton.
Burnley had late chances to level the score, but both Tarkowski and Vydra failed to hit the target, and United held on for all the points.
