Man Utd 0-1 Burnley – Video Highlights

Burnley scored their first points of the new Premier League season with a famous 1-0 victory over champions Manchester United at Turf Moor.
Robbie Blake’s stunning first-half volley was enough to hand Burnley their first points of the new Premier League campaign – and their first in the top flight for 33 years.

United, missing a number of first-choice defenders including Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic, were out of sorts but can have only themselves to blame for defeat after Michael Carrick squandered the chance to equalise with a missed penalty just before the break.

But for all United’s shortcomings – nervy at the back, far from commanding in midfield and largely toothless up front – the result proved Burnley will be a force to be reckoned with on home turf.
