Trace United and Ronaldo scores the goal
At 3′ a fantastic opportunity was spot on for Burnley with Wood. The visitors’ striker, who was left undisturbed, overturned with a header that failed to hit the goal. Three minutes later, Cristiano Ronaldo missed a great goal ball. Number 7 of the Red Devils, face to face with Hennessy, shoots high without hitting the door. At 8′ McTominay led Manchester United forward with the first intent straight from the edge of the penalty area. At 27′ the hosts find the double thanks to a good initiative by Sancho who skips Tarkovsky and concludes. His shot was deflected by Mi and crept into the net. At 35′ another McTominay ride from the rim printed on the shaft. Upon rebounding, the first to arrive was Ronaldo, who scored 3-0 with an empty net. Three minutes later, Burnley tried to get back into the match thanks to a diagonal from Lennon who left no room for De Gea. In the 64th minute, McTominay’s hot foot from distance still forces Hennessey to work overtime. Then Manchester manages a double advantage and gets the three points.
