Paul Pogba of Manchester United scores his team's first goal past Thomas Heaton of Burnley but it is later disallowed during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Burnley at Old Trafford on January 29, 2019 in Manchester, United Kingdom.

The 21-year-old, who signed from Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund in the summer, was given the nod by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following his cameo against Leeds United on Saturday.

However, ex-Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane wasn't involved in the fixture at Old Trafford on Tuesday. The Frenchman's move was officially confirmed ahead of United's 5-1 mauling of Marcelo Bielsa's men in the Premier League opener.

Former Clarets captain Tom Heaton was also given the nod at the Theatre of Dreams in a side that included Diogo Dalot, Eric Bailly, Harry Maguire, Brandon Williams, Nemanja Matic, Donny van de Beek, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial.
