Manchester United are top of the Premier League and for this they can thank Paul Pogba whose influence grew after the break, the midfielder crowning his display with a sweet 71st-minute winner.

This came when Bruno Fernandes found Marcus Rashford along the right and he crossed for Pogba to smash in a volley that beat Nick Pope via a Matthew Lowton deflection.



Having to watch United hog possession would also be a theme for them and so it was Fernandes, Pogba, Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial all did so for United early on.



Victory means United go to 36 points and overtake Liverpool, with 33, after 17 games – this having last been achieved after the same number of matches when beating Sunderland 3-1 on 15 December 2012 under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Complacency appeared United’s greatest threat.

This had Edinson Cavani restored to centre-forward after a three-game suspension, Eric Bailly passed fit to start a fourth consecutive league outing, and Paul Pogba partnering Nemanja Matic in midfield.

His shot went straight into the hands of Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope but this was better from United.
