Manchester United hit six-year Premier League high in Burnley win

Martial and Rooney, two forwards not having the best of seasons, grabbed their opportunities with both hands as Burnley were vanquished in Turf Moor

Manchester United’s 23-match unbeaten run in the Premier League represents a six-year high in English top-flight competition.

The Red Devils stretched their sequence of games without defeat with a 2-0 victory over Burnley on Sunday.

Man Utd can't offer Ibra new deal

Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney got the goals at Turf Moor to keep Jose Mourinho’s side in the mix for a top-four finish.

United have not come unstuck in the league since suffering a 4-0 drubbing at Chelsea on October 23.

They have suffered just three defeats in all competitions in that time – one each in the Europa League, EFL Cup and FA Cup.

Martial breaks 40-year Man Utd curse

Mourinho’s men have cemented their standing in fifth place with victory over Burnley, although they are now only one point behind arch-rivals City ahead of a derby date on Thursday.

United have also hit the 50-goal mark for the season, while only Tottenham boast a better defensive record in the Premier League.
