Manchester United top the Premier League table after New Year’s Day for the first time since they last won the title in 2013, with Paul Pogba’s second-half strike securing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side victory at Burnley on Tuesday night.

Referee Kevin Friend ruled out a headed goal from United captain Harry Maguire in a VAR-dominated first half and the visitors were beginning to look frustrated before Pogba’s volleyed effort deflected in off Matt Lowton’s leg with 19 minutes remaining at Turf Moor.

James Tarkowski fluffed a golden chance to equalise for the Clarets before Anthony Martial had a shot denied by Nick Pope at the death and the Red Devils held onto their advantage to come away with all three points.
