Mason Greenwood’s double and Edinson Cavani’s late strike gave Manchester United their fifth straight Premier League win as they beat Burnley 3-1 to move within eight points of leaders Man City.

The first half was frantic but goalless, and it was United who took the lead just after the break through Greenwood (48), smashing home at the far post from Marcus Rashford’s centre and a clever Bruno Fernandes dummy.

Burnley were level just 114 seconds later as James Tarkowski rose highest from an Ashley Westwood corner (50), but Greenwood got his second, finding the near post at the right of the box from a deflected shot off Jack Cork (85).

Half-time sub Edinson Cavani converted Donny van de Beek’s centre at close range for 3-1 in stoppage time (90+3), and the result means that, with six games remaining, United’s gap to rivals City is now eight points, while the gap to fifth place is now 12 points.

Burnley remain 17th, six points ahead of Fulham in the relegation zone and with a game in hand.
