Manchester United ended their three-game losing streak by beating Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor with Jonny Evans setting up Bruno Fernandes’ stunning volleyed winner to ease the pressure on Erik ten Hag.
Evans, making his first start for Man Utd in more than eight years, picked out Fernandes with an inch-perfect pass from his weaker left foot having earlier seen a goal ruled out for offside by VAR. The Man Utd captain’s sweet strike secured the breakthrough after a nervy first half for his side.
Zeki Amdouni, who scored in Monday night’s 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest, was denied by an impressive Andre Onana save before striking the post with Burnley looking the more likely in the opening period. Fernandes also had a strike stopped by James Trafford early on but United were second best
