Burnley v Man Utd - as it happened

Paul Singh by Paul Singh @besoccer_com - 0 9,456

Join us for live coverage of the Premier League clash between Burnley and Man Utd from Turf Moor. The match was due to be played in September, but was postponed due to the visitors reaching the latter stages of last season's Europa League.

FT: Burnley 0-1 Man Utd!!! All over at Turf Moor! United take home the three points thanks to a 71st minute Pogba goal. The first half was equal, but United were much better in the second. The goal was coming, but Burnley picked up in the last 10 minutes and Vydra and Tarkowski had clear chances to give Burnley a point. Thanks for joining us and see you again soon!
Still playing here in the 98th minute and now it's all over!!
Free-kick to United after a foul on Maguire and that will be that.
Matic is down with a problem and Pogba has got blood on his knee. Matic is quickly up though.
Vydra again!!! A ball into the box is only half-cleared and Vydra fires it well wide!
Man Utd sub: Martial has picked up a knock and is replaced by Tuanzebe.
Martial!!! Cavani plays in the Frenchman on the counter, he's all on his own and the weak shot is saved by Pope.
United need full time as Burnley are getting closer to an equaliser.
Both players are up now. Shaw looks a bit dazed.
Tarkowski!!! What have you done? A ball into the box bounces for Tarkowski and he miscues it into the ground when any fine connection with the ball would have been a goal. And then Shaw and Mee clash heads.
Four extra minutes.
Man Utd sub: McTominay on for Fernandes.
VAR has checked a possible handball, but it's not given. I think Maguire may head it onto Wan-Bissaka's arm and that's why it's not given. It was a very messy move.
Burnley sub: Rodriguez is replaced by Barnes.
Vydra almost does it again!!!! A deflected cross from the far side finds the sub and Bailly deflects the shot into the side netting!
Brownhill"! A long ball in is headed out by a defender straight to Brownhill and he curls it wide of De Gea's left hand post.
A ball goes into the box and Vydra very nearly controls it.
Martial!!! Pogba passes for Martial in the box and Tarkowski makes a fine challenge down low to deny him.
Burnley sub: Vydra on for Wood. Will he get a last minute equaliser like he did last weekend?
United sub: Greenwood on for Rashford.
United attack through Pogba and Rashford, but nothing comes of it.
Pogba is kicked by Brownhill and it's a free-kick for the men in white.
Burnley pressing here with a couple of good crosses into the box, but United deal with them.
The goal's been coming, to be fair. United have been dominant since the interval.
Pogba puts United ahead!! Lovely volley! Fernandes passes to Rashford on this near side, he crosses for Pogba and he volleys home from just inside the box. The ball deflected off Lowton and went between Pope's legs.
Pogba goes down in the box wanting a penalty, but nothing is given. I think Martial may have been offside initially.
Cavani!! Shaw's corner isn't dealt with, the ball breaks to Cavani, he moves the ball onto his left foot and then fires wide.
Rashford wins a corner for Man Utd.
Burnley sub: McNeil on for Brady.
The ball is played for Rashford and he hits at Pope from a tight angle. Was offside anyway.
Westwood is cautioned for a clear trip on Fernandes.
Fernandes has a pop from distance here, but Pope goes to the left to parry it and then claim the ball.
United are pressing now.
United attack dangerously twice thanks to Fernandes, once Martial and Cavani get in each other's way and then Pogba is offside from the second one.
Fernandes!! The Portuguese goes for a goal from just outside the box and it's regulation for Pope.
Rashford goes down this near side and his ball can't find Cavani in the box.
Cavani!!! United attack from De Gea, Pogba runs then Fernandes and Martial combine and Cavani miscues Martial's deflected pass. His poor finish prevents United from taking the lead.
Burnley attack now, but nothing comes of it. Still goalless.
Free-kick for the hosts after Wan-Bissaka fouls Brownhill.
Fernandes goes for goal from distance and it strikes Mee in the face!
Some early United pressure here in the second period.
United get us going again!
Burnley 0-0 Man Utd!! Half-time at Turf Moor in an eventful first half. Burnley started the better and had chances through Brady and Wood, but United grew into the game. Brady would've seen red by VAR had Shaw not fouled Gudmundsson at the other end while Maguire had a goal disallowed for a push. Fernandes also could have scored. Draw fair. Back for more shortly!
45+3: Bruno Fernandes is carded. I think for protesting.
45+2: United attack, but Rashford can't control the ball in the area and the chance goes.
45+1: Four extra minutes.
Great save by Pope!!! Martial's curling effort from outside the box is turned around the post by the keeper.
Bruno Fernandes chips the ball into the box and it goes wide.
Free-kick to Burnley and United clear it.
Claims for handball by Bruno Fernandes, but it hits Mee in the face.
Maguire scores for United, but it's disallowed for a foul on Pieters. Shaw's cross in is headed in by Maguire at the far post and Mee can't keep it out on the line. Referee Friend gives a foul though. Maguire pushes Pieters in the back with his left arm and that's a foul. Good call.
Let's clear up the VAR situation. The ref had to go to monitor because had he not given Shaw's foul on Gudmundsson, VAR was telling Friend that for him Brady deserved a red for DOGSO. In a DOGSO situation, if there is a previous foul. the DOGSO (or yellow for breaking down a promising attack) is rescinded. Friend thought Shaw's tackle was a foul and so he punished that challenge accordingly (with a yellow) and rescinded Brady's card. Perfectly done.
Burnley's free-kick goes into the box and it beats everybody.
Kevin Friend has taken away Brady's yellow and Shaw is booked. Superb refereeing. Burnley tried to take the free-kick quickly, but Friend didn't let them as Friend hadn't booked Shaw yet.
Kevin Friend has gone to the monitor to see both challenges. For me, yellow for Shaw, nothing for Brady.
I think Brady deserves a red, but I think he'll be saved as Shaw will be booked. Shaw's is a bad challenge, but it's only a yellow for me. If Shaw gets booked, Brady will avoid the red.
VAR is checking whether this is a red for Brady. If Cavani is not offside, then I think it's red, but I think it's a foul by Shaw on Gudmundsson. If Shaw's challenge is a foul, Brady can't see red as it's for DOGSO, not for a bad challenge.
Brady is cautioned for a foul on Cavani! Maguire wants a red for DOGSo, but Burnley wanted a free-kick at the other end for a foul by Shaw on Gudmundsson. Cavani could also be offside.
Luke Shaw has to concede a corner after coming under pressure from Gudmundsson.
Opportunity for United! Martial is given the ball on the edge of the D by Matic, but his finish goes wide of the goal.
Maguire getting spoken to here by the ref. It seems to be about Cavani and Pogba is also there. Not sure what happened there.
Chance for Wood!! Fernandes loses the ball, Westwood combines with Barnes who lays off for Wood and his strike deflects off Bailly and goes for a corner.
A Burnley cross in lands on the top of the net.
Martial goes for an overhead kick there!! Rashford feeds Fernandes and the cross finds Martial whose acrobatic effort strikes Lowton on the back.
Fernandes!!! Shaw's cross is touched by Martial and the Portuguese hits at Pope.
Free-kick to United on the far-side.
Cavani is caught in the face by a stray Mee arm and it's a free-kick for United.
A long ball forward finds Brady after Wood's flick on and his strike is blocked.
Martial is caught offside here.
Gudmundsson's ball into the area is flicked on by Wood, but Barnes fouls Maguire and the pressure is eased on OGS' men.
Good start by Sean Dyche's men here.
Free-kick to Burnley after a foul on Westwood.
Gudmundsson tries his luck from distance and Matic blocks the effort.
Free-kick to United just inside their own half after Fernandes is fouled.
Brady!!! Straight from the kick-off, a long ball finds Brady and he fires wide!
Burnley get us going from left to right at Turf Moor in their usual kits! United in white.
We'll have a minute's silence before kick off for all those Burnley fans who have died during 2020.
The players make their way out here!
There are two changes from the last PL game (a 2-1 win v Villa). McTominay and Fred are replaced by Matic and Cavani. Cavani has now served his three game ban for that offensive Instagram story.
United fielded a much changed line-up for the 1-0 win v Watford in the FA Cup at the weekend. Only Bailly retains his place from that one.
The Clarets have not played a PL game since 29th December v Sheff Utd. From that match, Gudmundsson for Taylor is the only change.
Burnley make four changes from the penalty shootout win over MK Dons in the FA Cup last weekend. Pope is back in goal for Norris while Lowton, Westwood and Brownhill also come back in to replace Bardsley, Stephens and Cork.
16th v 2nd. 16pts v 33pts. United will go top with a draw here. Burnley are just five points above the relegation zone.
It's a freezing night in Burnley for this one. -1 is the current temperature.
Kevin Friend is the referee while Stuart Attwell is the VAR.
Man Utd XI: De Gea (GK); Shaw, Maguire, Bailly, Wan-Bissaka; Martial, Matic, B Fernandes, Pogba, Rashford; Cavani.
