Football Results – Manchester United Won a Practice Match at Home

Among news, today, of other football results, Manchester United won a practice match at home. Manchester United defeated Burnley 3-1 in a closed-door match at Old Trafford, with Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard, and Fred scoring.

Officials set up the game against the Clarets to help United players gain fitness and give them some playing time.

This, before the Premier League season resumes at the weekend with a trip to the south coast to face Southampton.

Jadon Sancho, who made his United debut off the bench against Leeds on Saturday, started this game, exercising his skills.

Tom Heaton was also part of the starting lineup. Meanwhile, Phil Jones and Eric Bailly came off the bench to play crucial minutes in the second half.

Jesse Lingard had a successful loan spell at West Ham in the second half of last season, but he’s back now. He played for United after missing the Leeds game due to a positive COVID-19 test (the football news).

Visitors Burnley actually took the lead through Aaron Lennon.

But United equalized when Martial turned the ball in following a Harry Maguire header at a corner.

Lingard’s finish to put United ahead 2-1 was described as “clinical” by the club’s official match report.

Fred, who scored a rare goal against Leeds, now made it 3-1 with a goal here too for the victory.

Raphael Varane was not present, as the Frenchman only trained with his new teammates for the first time on Monday.

After all, he just completed an initial £34 million transfer to United from Real Madrid.

However, the Frenchman could still be in contention for Sunday’s match against Southampton.
