Fernandes' Volley Edges Man Utd Past Burnley

Fernandes' Volley Edges Man Utd Past Burnley

Bruno Fernandes' volley gave Manchester United a narrow 1-0 win over Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday.

It wasn't the best performance from United on the night but they managed to take the three points following three straight defeats.

Captain Fernandes, on the stroke of half-time, brilliantly volleyed home a first-time finish from Jonny Evans' lofted pass.

It came after Evans thought he had given United the lead when he headed in a corner, but saw his effort ruled out by VAR for Rasmus Hojlund's block on goalkeeper James Trafford.

Burnley however went hunting for an equaliser in the second period but were kept at arm's length by United who held onto their slender lead. 

The result makes it United's third win from six league games this season, moving them to eighth position on the log. 

Whereas, Burnley are at the bottom of the table with only a point so far, becoming the first promoted team to lose each of their opening four home games of a top-flight season.
