Solskjaer - "It's important for us to know that we can grind out results."

The victory at Turf Moor moved Man Utd to fifth spot in the Premier League table.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was pleased the Red Devils were able to secure three points against Burnley on Saturday.

Anthony Martial broke the deadlock at Turf Moor - with his third goal in two games - just before half-time as United went on to dominate majority of the match, but in the final 15 minutes Sean Dyche's boys piled pressure on the awayside, who eventually found their second goal when Daniel James played in Marcus Rashford for his 12th Premier League goal of the season.

The victory moved Solskjaer's team to fifth spot in the league table, and following the match the United boss said he was 'very happy'.

"In the first half I thought we were very good," said Solskjaer as FourFourTwo reported. "We controlled it, dominated it, scored a nice goal. Second half of course there's going to be a couple of instances in your box because they're desperate to get a goal and throwing men forward.

"We could have finished the game off really, we had some great counter-attacking chances. We should have got the second goal earlier but there was some great defending.

"It's important for us to know that we can grind out results as well, even though when you score one you don't always win. If we can get clean sheets we've got a chance to move up the table."
