Watch: Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard score in Man Utd friendly


Manchester United maintained their impressive form with a 3-1 win over Burnley in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Old Trafford. 

United have already started their Premier League campaign with a 5-1 win over Leeds but organised another friendly in a bid to get more match fitness into players. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made 10 changes, handing starts to Tom Heaton, Diogo Dalot, Eric Bailly, Harry Maguire, Brandon Williams, Nemanja Matic, Donny van de Beek, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial and Jadon Sancho. 

Burnley broke the deadlock after 10 minutes when Aaron Lennon slotted the ball past Heaton but their lead didn’t last long. 

Harry Maguire’s header took a deflection off Anthony Martial before finding the back of the net and Jesse Lingard then scored with a great first-time finish.

Both sides made a number of changes in the second half and Fred, who scored against Leeds on Saturday, found the back of the net once again to give United a two-goal advantage.
