Our prediction: Man Utd v Burnley

While Burnley held United to a close battle last time they met, the Clarets actually failed to record a single shot on target at Turf Moor.

And the same pattern could play out once again here. United’s patience will be tested by a Burnley defence which knows how to dig in.

But Solskjaer has plenty of attacking options to choose from and the hosts will eventually breach the Clarets’ back line – although they may have to wait until the second half for that breakthrough.

Our prediction: Man Utd 2-0 Burnley (6/1 at bet365)
