The Frenchman’s connection was perfect, although it took a deflection off Matthew Lowton to ensure the ball went past Nick Pope and into the Burnley net.
Although Burnley had three decent chances in a frantic ending, United secured the win to head the table after 17 rounds of matches.
An eight-year wait has finally been ended just in time for a visit to defending Premier League champions Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.
