  • 70. Manchester United 2-0 Burnley

    It seems Rashford isn’t the only one who has been watching Messi, as Gudmundsson plays an inch perfect ball into Churlinov who really should get a goal back for Burnley.

    His shot however is wide of the post, and a goal still eludes the visitors.

  • 66. Manchester United 2-0 Burnley

    Marcus Rashford looks full of confidence at Old Trafford.

    He is pulling out all the stops now, with a cheeky nutmeg on Cullen before driving at the Burnley goal and eventually getting tackled.

    In his Lionel Messi bag it seems…

  • 64. Manchester United 2-0 Burnley

    A potential problem for Burnley here, as star man Manuel Benson goes down and looks to be in some pain.

    He is replaced by Churlinov.

  • 62. Manchester United 2-0 Burnley

    Wow. Wow. Wow.

    Marcus Rashford doubles the lead with an incredible solo goal.

  • 56. Manchester United 1-0 Burnley

    Harwood-Bellis puts in a big tackle on Martial which leaves the Frenchman on the floor, a sight all too familiar to Manchester United fans…

    Antony immediately gets his jacket off, and that might just be the end of Martial’s night, despite being back on his feet.

  • 54. Manchester United 1-0 Burnley

    It feels like the next goal could decide this game.

    If Burnley get it, you’d back them to capitalize and get another, whereas if it goes United’s way the game could be dead and buried.

  • 52. Manchester United 1-0 Burnley

    The Burnley wingers are very high and wide as the Burnley side looks somewhat reminiscent of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

    I wonder how many people would have believed that comparison three years ago…

  • 50. Manchester United 1-0 Burnley

    A yellow card for Josh Cullen for the accumulation of fouls in the game so far from him.

    He has certainly been tenacious in midfield thus far.

  • 48. Manchester United 1-0 Burnley

    Benson does really well to get the better of Malacia early in the second half.

    Positive start for Burnley…

  • 46. ​​Manchester United 1-0 Burnley

    Back underway in the second half, as Burnley seeks a way back into this game.

    No changes from either side at the break.

  • Wan-Bissaka impresses

    With Dalot unavailable tonight, lots of eyes are on Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who has impressed tonight.

    He has been solid defensively, as well as good going forwards, including a brilliant assist to set up Christian Eriksen for the first goal.

    The referee calls the first half to a close.

    A first half that saw Burnley impress, but ultimately concede the all important goal that will see them go out of the Carabao Cup as it stands.

    The goal was brilliantly worked by Bruno Fernandes and Aaron Wan Bissaka, who combined to put it on a plate for Christian Eriksen to tap home.

    Burnley will surely keep looking for the equalizer in the second half, which could see them get back in the game, or crumble and concede a few more.

    All of the second half coverage coming to you shortly, so stay with us!

  • 45. Manchester United 1-0 Burnley

    There will be a minimum of one minute of added time.

    Rashford goes charging through as United search for a second, but the flag is up for offside.

    It’s a little strange going back to such little added time after what felt like weeks being added on at the end of every half at the World Cup.

  • 42. Manchester United 1-0 Burnley

    So close for United and Martial!
    The Frenchman is found in the middle of the box, and he fires a shot from his left foot towards the goal.

    It takes a deflection and looks to be heading into the top corner, but Peacock-Farrell makes a great save to deny him.

  • 40. Manchester United 1-0 Burnley

    Since the goal it is definitely Burnley that have been the better side, but United have already shown that they can be deadly on the counter attack.

    Bruno Fernandes has been at the root of all things good for the home side.

  • 38. Manchester United 1-0 Burnley

    Burnley are so nearly level!

    The resulting corner is played short to Gudmundsson who whips the ball into the middle.

    Dubravka comes for the punch but completely misses the ball, before parrying a shot towards his own goal.

    Fortunately for United, Casemiro is there to clear the ball off the line.

  • 36. Manchester United 1-0 Burnley

    Burnley are certainly growing into the game a bit and they are having a good spell.

    Benson looks really dangerous, and wins a foul off Malacia.

    He then sits down Christian Eriksen on the edge of the box and strikes a short towards the near post, which is well saved by Dubravka for a corner.

  • 34. Manchester United 1-0 Burnley

    You get the feeling that Burnley have to go for this now, which could benefit Manchester United.

    The visitors almost get level through Manuel Benson, who has been on fire this season with seven goals and four assists in the championship.

    He twists and turns in front of Lindelof, before smashing a shot into the side netting.

    Close, but no cigar.

  • 32. Manchester United 1-0 Burnley

    United have won their last 16 games in which they have scored first, so it could be a long way back for Burnley tonight.

  • 30. Manchester United 1-0 Burnley

    That is a super Manchester United goal, but we need to talk about that Aaron Wan-Bissaka assist.

    A long floating ball towards the back post looks to be going out of play, before The Spider leaps up and acrobatically plays the ball across goal for Christian Eriksen to tap into the roof of the net.

    That was sublime, and if he keeps up how he plays so far, there could well still be a place for him at Manchester United.
