Rodriguez strike helps Burnley shock Man Utd

Burnley plunged more misery on Manchester United as they beat Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side 2-0 to claim their first win at Old Trafford for 58 years.

United could have moved to within three points of Chelsea in fourth with a win but Chris Wood (39) and a stunning effort from Jay Rodriguez (56) further dented their hopes of climbing the league.

For United, it was a similar story as they enjoyed over 70 per cent possession, a huge amount of territory but had absolutely no end-product with Nick Pope in the Burnley goal untested for large parts.

The home fans that remained at full-time, which wasn’t many, voiced their frustration at the final whistle as Burnley moved seven points clear of the drop zone after taking maximum points from their last two games.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side remain six points behind Chelsea and off the top four, while Burnley climb to 13th, seven points clear of the relegation zone.
