Lukaku brace eases pressure on Mourinho with Burnley win

Romelu Lukaku fired a first-half brace as 10-man Manchester United beat Burnley 2-0 at Turf Moor in the Premier League.

Lukaku’s double looked to have set United on course for a comfortable win but Marcus Rashford was sent off just moments after Paul Pogba missed a penalty.

Rashford, a 61st-minute substitute for Alexis Sanchez, jutted his head towards Phil Bardsley’s after the defender left a leg in on the 20-year-old as they hustled for the ball in the corner. Referee Jon Moss was left with no option but to issue a red.

However, the numerical inferiority did not inhibit United’s hold on the game, and Lukaku should have added a third late on but Ben Mee got back to deny him after he had rounded Joe Hart in the Burnley goal.
