scored the winner. The referee made a couple of controversial decisions as from the beginning he seemed to lose his concentration. An awful challenge by Brady on Cavani was checked by VAR for a possible red card but after the check, the referee decided to call off the foul entirely and book Luke Shaw instead who apparently fouled a Burnley player earlier.

Ole claims he had to calm his players as they were angry by the referee in the half time.

"You've got to calm them down at half-time because emotions are running high because they disagree with the things that happen out there,"


told Sky Sports.

"So we have to take back control and we played really well in the second half and we held out at the end."

On the two incidents, Solskajer added: 

"I've not watched any of the decisions so I can't really say. Might've been a foul by Luke apparently so that's probably the right decision, definitely not a foul for Harry for his goal. If you can't jump and head it in like this, I don't believe that's anywhere near a foul. Delighted with the response after a bit of a tough first half-hour."
