Burnley v Man Utd team news

Burnley: Key attacking outlets Dwight McNeil and Jay Rodriguez are doubts after picking up minor injury concerns.

At the back, Jimmy Dunne and Charlie Taylor are unlikely to be fit to start, but a backline of Matt Lowton, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee and Erik Pieters is more than capable of carrying out Dyche's schemes.

Man Utd: Eric Bailly has a neck issue that saw him leave the field in United's weekend FA Cup tie early.

He is doubtful to start, along with Luke Shaw, Victor Lindelof and Paul Pogba, who are nursing knocks. Edinson Cavani is back from his ban and should be given game time from the bench.

Our prediction: Burnley v Man Utd

United have garnered a reputation for taking two steps forward, one step back. They progress, they win the majority, but lose the crucial games that can take them from 'surviving' to 'thriving'.

This is United's most important game of the season so far – until the weekend's showdown at Anfield. This is United's chance to open up a three-point lead in the Premier League title race and unsettle all of their rivals in a fell swoop.

They will need to be patient to break down Burnley, but in Bruno Fernandes, they boast a player who can win matches, any match, at any moment with a killer through ball, intricate flick or thunderous strike. This is a huge night for Solskjaer.

Our prediction: Burnley 0-2 Man Utd
