Comments:

League position: 16th Burnley had now won one of their last 11 games in the Premier League (lost six). The Clarets had now scored more than one goal in only one of their last 15 games in the Premier League. After 17 games, they had yet to concede more than two goals in a home game so far in this Premier League season. Burnley manager Sean Dyche said: "We huffed and puffed and stuck at it. They scored two poor goals from our point of view, we have to make a foul on the first one. They killed the game. That is the reality of playing some of the top sides."

Comments:

League position: 5th Manchester United were now unbeaten in their last 23 games in the Premier League (won 13). It was the longest such sequence in the division in the same season since United's 24-game run in 2010-11. The Red Devils had now kept five clean sheets in their last seven away games in the Premier League. United failed in their attempt to score three or more goals in four consecutive away games in the Premier League for the first time since April 2000. Manchester United manager José Mourinho said: "It's not easy to win here and it's even harder to be in control and we were in control for 90 minutes. We understood the way they play and we played against their strengths."
