Man Utd to maintain good league form with a win

Man Utd secured a 3-1 win away at Spurs in their last league game and remain Man City's only rivals for the Premier League title this season. Man Utd sit 7pts clear of Leicester City as things stand and boast a good recent record against Burnley, so should be confident in their chances of increasing that gap on Sunday.

Admittedly, Man Utd have a midweek Europa League tie to negotiate before they can turn their attention to Burnley and the visitors will be looking to take advantage of any slip-ups the hosts offer. Rashford, Bailly, Jones and Martial could all miss the game through injury, though England striker Rashford will be given the chance to pass a late fitness test.

Burnley could be without their first-choice goalkeeper Pope, while Rodriguez, Long, Brady and Barnes are also struggling with injuries and could miss the short trip to Manchester.

Burnley suffered a very disappointing defeat at home to fellow strugglers Newcastle and will be looking to make amends at Old Trafford this weekend. Burnley beat Man Utd 2-0 when the pair last locked horns at the home of the Premier League's most successful club and have also secured draws on their two prior trips to Old Trafford.
