Manchester United put the hosts under relentless pressure in the second half and finally made the breakthrough with 10 minutes to go when Romelu Lukaku’s cross found Marcus Rashford in the Huddersfield area.
Manchester City were 3-0 winners against Burnley to extend their lead to five points at the top of the table after Manchester United dropped points for the second successive weekend.
