Mason Greenwood was Manchester United’s star man, scoring twice in his 3-1 win over Burnley on Sunday.
Mason Greenwood’s strike in the second half was canceled by James Tarkowski, who was the 1,000th Premier League goal conceded by the Red Devils.
Greenwood went on to prove how valuable he was to United on the right, and possibly England, with another goal, albeit deflected. Cavani then ensured the result with a time-out goal.
It was not easy for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side as there was fear in the first minute for the hosts.
Dean Henderson came running out of his line to encounter a float ball from Matt Lowton, only to be beaten in the air by Chris Wood.
Luckily for the Red Devils, he was flagged offside after heading for the net.
Gradually, United started to gain the upper hand. McTominay had a blocked shot before Paul Pogba timed his jump to perfection to steer a cross from Aaron Wan-Bissaka to the top corner, only for Peacock-Farrell to tip the ball to the outside of the post.
The Burnley five-man midfielder sat deep but they posed a threat, Wood forcing Henderson into action with a low shot after a quick counterattack, while Bruno Fernandes pierced Peacock Farrell’s left post at the other end moments later.
Rashford was cleared to cut from the left before breaking through to the goal which was palpated by Peacock-Farrell, while both were involved as United’s calls for a penalty were dismissed.
Rashford appeared to be expecting a collision and fell after passing the ball past Peacock-Farrell, but there appeared to be no contact between the two, as United’s screams for a kick were vented.
Greenwood was unable to put the finishing touches on Rashford’s ball along the box, while Wood had a similar chance on the stroke of half-time, with the teams entering the break scoreless.
United brought Cavani to halftime, with Fred making his way, and they went ahead within three minutes of the restart as Fernandes allowed Rashford’s square pass to drift between his legs, pushing Greenwood to to mark.
However, it only took two minutes for Burnley to level up, with Tarkowski coming home after Ashley Westwood’s inswing turn.
The hosts took the lead again with six minutes to go as Greenwood’s strike from United’s right-side took a cruel deflection on Jack Cork, putting Peacock-Farrell at odds before entering the net.
Cavani then added a goal in the stoppage time to make it 3-1 and wrap up the points.
