Predicted teams: Burnley vs Manchester United

Manchester United could move three points clear at the top of the table as they make the trip to Burnley on Tuesday.

The Clarets have been struck my a Covid-19 outbreak and it is yet unclear whether the home team will be able to field a full-strength team but manager Sean Dyche has delivered a boost ahead ot the fixture.

“Nick Pope should be fine,” he said after the goalkeeper sat out their FA Cup game against MK Dons. “Charlie Taylor is touch and go with Jay Rodriguez and Dwight McNeil. We’ll wait and see on Westwood, Brownhill, Peacock-Farrell and Dunne.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjær will nearly have a full squad up for selection but there are doubts over Paul Pogba and Eric Bailly.

Bailly was substituted against Watford with a head injury whilst Paul Pogba missed the game entirely.

“Eric (Bailly) and Paul (Pogba) trained today, but they didn’t do all of it,” Ole said in his pre-match press conference.

Edinson Cavani is available again after completing a three-match suspension.

United go into the game full of confidence with 8 wins and 2 draws in their last 10 league games.

Burnley (4-4-2): Pope; Lowton, Mee, Tarkowski, Taylor; Brady, Brownhill, Westwood, McNeil; Wood, Barnes

Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelöf, Maguire, Shaw; Matic, Fred; Rashford, Fernandes, Martial; Cavani
