United eventually went on to win 1-0 at Turf Moor, thanks to Paul Pogba’s fine volley.

The result sends them three points clear at the top of the Premier League.

The hosts could have been one man down in the first half, after Robbie Brady appeared to deny Edinson Cavani a clear goalscoring opportunity.

Solskjaer revealed his players were upset with Friend’s decisions and needed to be calmed at the break.
