Bruno Fernandes scored the lone goal late in the first half after the defender’s initial effort was called out.
Manchester United relieved their current problem with their first Premier League away win of the season on Saturday night, defeating Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor.
In the 45th minute, Bruno Fernandes grabbed onto a long cross from Jonny Evans and struck a shot past Burnley keeper James Trafford to seal all three points for Erik ten Hag’s side.
Earlier, Evans was denied his first goal for Manchester United in nearly nine years after a VAR review determined that attacker Rasmus Hojlund was offside and interfered with play.
Hojlund stood in Trafford’s path, preventing the custodian from making a save.
However, United fans were irritated since Manchester City scored in identical circumstances against Fulham in September, and Nathan Ake’s goal was allowed to stand.
In any event, Bruno’s magnificent strike sealed all three points for United after a scoreless second half, and Ten Hag’s team moves up to ninth position with six games remaining.
United have now won three and lost three in the Premier League this season, with defeats away to Tottenham and Arsenal and at home to Brighton.
Their three victories – at home to Wolves and Nottingham Forest and away to Burnley – have all been secured by a one-goal margin.
