Manchester United got back to winning ways in the Premier League on Saturday night.
After three straight defeats, in all competitions, Erik ten Hag and his misfiring team defeated Burnley with captain Bruno Fernandes scoring a fantastic winner. He volleyed into the net in Robin van Persie-like fashion.
United still have several injury concerns, though, with nine players missing that game. Lisandro Martinez picked up an unspecified problem during the build-up.
Raphael Varane and Sofyan Amrabat were fit enough to be handed late cameos. United are now preparing to play Crystal Palace in a double header at Old Trafford.
With one eye on the January window, meanwhile, United continue to be linked with mid-season moves, as Donny van de Beek reportedly attracts interest from Spanish side Villarreal. Van de Beek has yet to get a single minute for the first-team this season.
A recap of the day's United news.

Erik ten Hag's side calmed the storm of three consecutive defeats with a hard-fought victory at Turf Moor, a no-frills away-day performance settled by Bruno Fernandes. The United captain latched onto a raking long ball before arrowing his volley into the far corner, evoking memories of Robin van Persie vs Aston Villa.
Wayne Rooney was the creator-in-chief that day in 2013 with Evans watching on from centre-back, but on Saturday he took the impetus. Stepping into Burnley's half, the 35-year-old capped off his first start for United in eight years with the crucial assist.
