Ronaldo put McTominay on his way to the opening goal with a pass. Half an hour later, the Portuguese himself scored his goal. After McTominay hit the post, Ronaldo kicked in on the rebound.
In between, Jadon Sancho saw his shot to the far corner thanks to a Burnley player deflect into goal. Burnley also scored in the enemy’s goal before half time.
