Man United star sets a record in club 3-1 league win over Burnley

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer led Manchester United team were in action against Sean Dyche's Fulham side at the Old Trafford in their 32nd league game of the season.

The Red Devils were very dominant in the game as they put up some incredible performance with their physical, tactical and technical displays over the visitor.

Manchester United opened the scoring sheet in the 48th minutes after several attempts to break the deadlock in the goalless first half proved abortive.

In the late minutes to the end of the second half, Mason Greenwood took the lead again for the host with his brace of the game in the 84th minutes to make it two goals to one.

Uruguayan international, Edinson Cavani extend United's lead in the 90+3 minutes to make the final score line three goals to one at full time.

With Edinson Cavani getting on the score sheet, he has now set a record for the club as a substitute player having been substituted into the game in the 46th minutes for Fred.

Edinson Cavani has now scored four goals as a substitute in the premier league this season, with only Chicharito (5 in 2010/11) and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (5 in 1998/99) netting more in a single season for the Red Devils.

The win for the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side means they now currently sit at the 2nd spot on the table with 66 points in 32 games played, 8 points behind league leader and city rival, Manchester City with 74 points in the same number of games played.
