Things are going well at Manchester United at the moment — perhaps a little too well. Not even fixtures against both North London clubs have put paid to Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s winning start, and United have charged up to within three points of the Premier League’s top four. The run can’t go on much longer ... can it?
Burnley are next up to try and break the streak, visiting Old Trafford on Tuesday evening. After a terrible start to the season, Sean Dyche’s side have won three of their last four and moved out of the drop zone. It could be a tougher game than it looks.
United are still without Marcos Rojo and Marouane Fellaini, while Chris Smalling is a doubt. For Burnley, Aaron Lennon and Jonathan Walters are on the treatment table; Robbie Brady, Jóhann Guðmundsson, Phil Bardsley and Matt Lowton face late fitness tests.
