Man United 2-0 Burnley: Marcus Rashford scores stunner to secure Carabao Cup quarter-final spot

Returning to action after the World Cup and in their first encounter since Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure, Erik ten Hag’s men seized the lead in the 27th minute thanks to a close-range strike from Christian Eriksen, one of several players on display who had competed in Qatar.

The lead was then doubled 12 minutes into the second half when Rashford, who scored three goals for England at the World Cup, went on a run from his own half to the visitors’ box and hammered it into the net.

Burnley, who are now top of the Championship table, attacked several times in attack – and almost benefited from some blunders by United goalkeeper Martin Dubravka – but were unable to cause an upset.

Apart from Ronaldo, who left by mutual consent last month following his fiery TalkTV interview, other World Cup players missing from United’s squad included finalists Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane, as well as fellow center-back Harry Maguire, who was unwell.

However, five players returned from Qatar – Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Eriksen, Casemiro, who was used as a central defender, and Tyrell Malacia – were named to a strong starting XI as Ten Hag made four changes from the 2-1 Premier League win against Fulham on November 13.

Also among the substitutes were Luke Shaw, Antony, and Fred, who all came on in the second half.JAMB Result

Former Manchester City captain Kompany chose a team with two changes from Saturday’s 3-1 win against Middlesbrough, with long-serving forward Ashley Barnes being one of them.

This was United’s first competitive appearance since their owners, the Glazers, announced they were open to abandoning control of the club, with a sale among the options in a “process to evaluate strategic alternatives,” in addition to being post-Ronaldo.

In the early moments of the game, some anti-Glazer chanting could be heard from the fans, while on the pitch, Barnes put an early header over, with the flag raised for offside, and Alejandro Garnacho, fed by Fernandes, blasted a shot that was blocked by Bailey Peacock-boot.

Dubravka then survived two scares in short succession, first seeing Casemiro clear a goal-bound ball after the goalie misjudged an attempted punch, and then hacking the ball away himself after mis-controlling a backpass.

In the 40th minute, Peacock-Farrell produced another save, this time on Martial’s deflected shot.

Soon after the break, Scott McTominay shot wide before unwittingly gifting the ball to Benson, who skewed wide.

Rashford then produced a moment reminiscent of his superb World Cup form, sprinting forward with the ball from United’s side, pushing between two defenders as he approached the Burnley area, and smashing a low effort beyond Peacock-Farrell.NYSC Portal

Burnley made a good comeback, with substitute Darko Churlinov shooting wide and Barnes hitting wide from promising positions, with Barnes then firing wide again in the closing 10 minutes.

At the other end, Antony saw a drive saved by Peacock-Farrell before the final whistle guaranteed United’s position in the last eight.
