Jonny Evans was 'outstanding' in Man United's win at Burnley, says Rio Ferdinand as the defender calls it 'the best night of my life' - and Bruno Fernandes - who he assisted - gives him his man of the match prize!

Unlikely hero Jonny Evans hailed it as the 'best night of his life' as he returned to the Manchester United starting line-up after eight years to claim a clean sheet and assist in Saturday night's 1-0 at Burnley.

Evans, 35, spent the peak years of his career at West Brom and Leicester before surprisingly being given a new contract at Old Trafford in the summer.

Facing an injury crisis, Erik ten Hag turned to the experienced Ulsterman and he didn't disappoint with a man-of-the-match performance on his 200th United appearance that saw his header disallowed before he set up Bruno Fernandes for a stunning volleyed winner.
