Manchester United continued their fine start to 2018 on Saturday with a hard-fought 1-0 victory away to Burnley in the Premier League.

The three points, which keep United second in the table, were won when Anthony Martial produced a calm finish in the 54th-minute after a brilliant pass from Romelu Lukaku.

Man Utd's defence held firm in the closing stages as Burnley pressed for an equaliser, while Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba were vital in breaking things up in midfield.

Pogba's ability to retain possession whilst using his strength to hold off the opposition was vital for the Red Devils at Turf Moor, but he found himself in some fiery incidents.

The 24-year-old picked up a yellow card in the 69th-minute for persistent fouling, and there was a moment during the match involving Pogba which United fans enjoyed.

Pogba's stern words for Cork

After a strong challenge against Jack Cork, a fired up Pogba wasn't happy with the Burnley midfielder's actions - and as you can see below, he let him know about it.

As the likes of James Tarkowski, Jeff Hendrick and Jesse Lingard separated the pair, Man Utd's record signing said "Don't push me!" to Cork, repeating the message several times.

If that wasn't enough, Pogba also appeared to shout "I'm not your friend" at the ex-Swansea man as he was smartly led away from the situation by good friend Lingard.
