Man Utd3-Burnley1 Mason Greenwood's brace and a late Edinson Cavani strike earned Manchester United a 3-1 victory over Burnley at Old Trafford. Burnley's Chris Wood found the net in the first minute but the goal was disallowed for offside, before Paul Pogba forced goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell into a flying save nine minutes later. Man Utd did open the scoring three minutes into the second half when Bruno Fernandes dummied Marcus Rashford's cross for Greenwood to slot in at the far post. But that lead lasted only two minutes as James Tarkowski headed Ashley Westwood's corner past Dean Henderson.

Late goals by Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood earned Manchester United a 3-1 comeback win at Tottenham Hotspur that reduces the gap to leaders Manchester City.

Fred then reacted quickest to a Hugo Lloris parry to fire in a 57th-minute equaliser from close range. Spurs went close to retaking the lead as Son and Harry Kane forced saves from the legs of Dean Henderson but Cavani headed in a superb Greenwood cross with 11 minute...
