Full-time: Burnley 0-2 Manchester United

16:07

Hang on, he's back up now, albeit looking pretty exhausted. He only has one more minute of added time to power through.

16:06

Oh my, now Eric Bailly has gone down.

16:04

Uh oh. Pogba has gone down after that strike and Jose Mourinho immediately takes him off. Michael Carrick comes onto replace him for the final few minutes.

16:03

Pogba so close to a third! The Frenchman has acres of space to run into and has Mkhitaryan and Rashford either side to him making runs. He only has eyes for goal however and lets fly with a shot from the edge of the box, but he misses the target by inches.

United have been cruising since half-time, thanks to Wayne Rooney's goal.

15:58

Good save from Heaton! Rashford skips inside his man too easily and opts to take the shot on first time. The Burnley goalkeeper is down sharply to make a good save, but the fourth official decides there wasn't a save and gives the goal kick.

15:53

Rooney picks up a yellow card for what looks like persistent dissent. Burnley chuck the resulting free-kick into the box but it peters out into nothing.

That break in play will signal the end of Anthony Martial's afternoon, he's replaced by Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

15:49

Here's a final change for Burnley, 19-year-old Daniel Agyei replaces Barnes.

15:47

Rashford bursts into life, easily shifting gears to stride past Ward but James Tarkowski gets across to cover and usher the ball out of play.

15:43

Here's a change for United, Marcus Rashford enters the fray with 20 minutes remaining, replacing Jesse Lingard, who has had a good day at the office today.

15:39

Terrific defending from Bailly! Barnes tears down the right flank having got the better of Blind far too easily. He pings a cross into Gray inside the six yard area but the Ivorian does brilliantly to divert it away from goal.

15:37

United lurch forward on the counter attack again with Lingard driving across from right to left. He stops the run of Rooney into the box and plays the pass, but the United skipper slips over just as the ball reaches his feet. Big 'WHEEEY's from the home crowd; that is about as lively as this second half has got.

15:29

Martial again drives menacingly in from the left, forcing another corner off Keane. He has been superb so far today.

15:27

Pogba sees space open up in front of him after another neat interchange with Martial and takes the shot on from 25 yards out. He drives a vicious effort across goal but Heaton reads it all the way and firmly palms it away.

15:26

It's been a pretty tame start to this second-half. Burnley have had more of the ball but are doing nothing with it, plenty of sideways passing but no incision.

15:22

Fellaini dawdles on the ball but gets away with it when Brady is penalised for charging into the Belgian.

15:18

And we are back underway for the second-half at Turf Moor. One change for Burnley to bring to you, Ben Mee is replaced by Tom Jam Tarkowski.

Half-time: Burnley 0-2 Manchester United

15:01

Two minutes of time added on in this first-half.

14:57

United have a second! Wayne Rooney joins Anthony Martial in making the most of their starting appearances today. It's wonderful play from Pogba to create the chance, turning past two Burnley players before sliding an inch perfect pass down the inside left channel for Martial. He skips past Mee and forces the ball inside to Rooney, who's effort takes a deflection, but manages to squeeze it over the line despite Keane's efforts to hack clear.

14:54

Goal! Burnley 0-2 Manchester United (Wayne Rooney, 38)

Anthony Martial's 25th goal for Manchester United is the difference so far at Turf Moor.

14:51

10 minutes of the half remain; Fellaini gives away another needless free kick which Brady will launch into the box,
