Manchester United matchwinner Mason Greenwood fires warning to title rivals City that ‘anything is possible’ after win over Burnley closed gap to Premier League leaders to eight points
- Manchester United beat Burnley 3-1 on Sunday with Mason Greenwood’s double
- The Old Trafford side closed to eight points behind leaders Manchester City
- Greenwood still believes there’s room for a City slip-up to keep the race alive
Mason Greenwood scored twice to sink Burnley at Old Trafford on Sunday and then warned Manchester City that ‘anything is possible’ in the Premier League title race.
Manchester United’s win put them eight points behind Pep Guardiola’s league leaders with six games left to play.
City famously recovered from the same position to snatch the title away from United nine years ago and Greenwood believes the same is possible now.

‘You can never be sure, they might slip up,’ said United’s teenage striker. ‘Anything’s possible. Hopefully they drop some points but we just have to keep focussed on our games.’
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised his players for maintaining their pursuit of City and promised to fight until the end.
‘I’m really proud that we never give up and we have proven so many teams this season our fitness and resilience,’ said Solskjaer.
‘It’s unrealistic but stranger things have happened in football. We just have to do our job.’

Burnley boss Sean Dyche felt the scoreline was harsh on his team after they fought back to equalise before losing to two late goals.
‘I wouldn’t like to disrespect them because they are a top side, but it was a closer affair than the scoreline suggests for sure,’ said Dyche.
‘I thought we were seeing the game out well and might have had the chance to nick it, then they get one out of the blue. It’s a double deflection, one off Charlie Taylor and one off Corky (Jack Cork).’
Defeat left Burnley six points off the relegation zone but with a game in hand on third-from-bottom Fulham.
‘We’re still battling away down there and mentality is the key,’ said goal scorer James Tarkowski.
‘We can’t rely on other teams to do our job for us. We are still in the fight until mathematically it’s done.’
