Paul Pogba sent Man United top with a strike at Turf Moor against Burnley.

REUTERS/Clive Brunskill Paul Pogba fired Manchester United to the top of the Premier League as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men ground out an important victory at Burnley.



Pogba’s second-half strike was the difference as United secured the result their dominance deserved at Burnley, with the 1-0 triumph giving them a three-point cushion over Liverpool heading into Sunday’s mouth-watering Anfield encounter.



The relief was as palpable and United looked to add another, with James Tarkowksi producing an important last-ditch challenge on Martial.

Anthony Martial saw an overhead kick blocked as United looked to find a way through, but Burnley were nearly gifted an opener by Fernandes.

Josh Brownhill struck wide and substitute Matej Vydra saw an effort deflected into the side netting by Bailly as Burnley launched a late attack, with the VAR checking a handball against Maguire in the box.

Things ended nervily as Tarkowski miscued a shot, with Shaw needing treatment and Martial wasting a later chance to put things to bed.
