LONDON: Marcus Rashford scored twice as Manchester United extended their 100 percent record on the road, coming from behind again to win 3-2 at the English Premier League's bottom club Sheffield United on Thursday.

United have now won all six away league games this season -- conceding first on each occasion -- and the latest comeback victory moved them up to sixth place, on 23 points, five behind leaders Liverpool but with a game in hand.

Sheffield United's solitary point from 13 matches is the worst start by a team in any top-flight campaign and the Blades have now lost eight matches in a row and 15 of their last 16 going back to last season.

Aston Villa were left to rue the woodwork and missed chances as they were held to a goalless draw in an entertaining Premier League game at home to Burnley on Thursday.

Dean Smith's Villa side created enough opportunities to win the match and had 27 shots but only got seven of them on target and Burnley keeper Nick Pope dealt comfortably with most.

The result left Villa in 11th place on 19 points while Burnley move out of the bottom three into 17th spot on 10 points. Burnley are unbeaten in their last three games including Sunday's win at Arsenal and manager Sean Dyche was relieved to keep that run going. Agencies
