Manchester United’s Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney sink Burnley

Manchester United enter Thursday’s 174th derby with Manchester City knowing victory at the Etihad Stadium will leapfrog them over Pep Guardiola’s side into fourth place following this convincing win.Before the recalled Wayne Rooney’s 251st goal for the club, Anthony Martial became the first United man to score at Turf Moor in the league since Lou Macari in 1976. In doing so he cost another £8.5m payment to Monaco, a clause being triggered by Martial reaching 25th goals for the club.

Burnley 0-2 Manchester United: Martial and Rooney score but Pogba limps off late

Manchester United picked up three simple points at Turf Moor, but the injury curse may have struck again.

Wayne Rooney returned to make his first start in months, Anthony Martial slotted in up front, and Daley Blind took up central defensive duties. If there's one thing a...

Jose Mourinho rests Marcus Rashford, recalls Wayne Rooney

After playing two full hours against Anderlecht on Thursday, United's most important striker is given the afternoon off against Burnley. How times change. Wayne Rooney starts ahead of a 19-year-old, and it's frankly a disappointment. An understandable disappointment, of course, given that Marcus Rashford played 120 minutes in the Europa League on Thursday. But still. Tells you something about the pecking order at Manchester United these days. Anyway, Rooney starts and captains, with Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard for company up front. Behind them, Paul Pogba — who apparently never...

With Juan Mata also out for the foreseeable future, United are stretched so thin in attack that Wayne Rooney may well start at Turf Moor. At the back, Eric Bailly has played virtually every minute since the international break, and as United’s only fit senior center...

Wayne Rooney at risk of going out at Old Trafford with a whimper | Daniel Taylor

Manchester United’s record scorer has 10 games left, at most, for the club and his chances of a fitting finale look slimIn the middle of the pitch, under the lights of the Bernabéu, one man could be seen going through his victory poses. Cristiano Ronaldo has choreographed these routines over the years. He kept his top on this time, maybe reserving that particular treat for the final, but you are probably familiar with the rest of the act. Ronaldo pointed at his chest. He nodded with appreciation at his own night’s work and it was the look of self‑adoration you might remember from the...
