Manchester United return to Premier League action with a short trip to Burnley on Tuesday, knowing that a point would be enough to leapfrog Liverpool and claim top spot. At almost the midway point in the campaign, it’s looking increasingly like everyone else is sufficiently crap to enable the Reds to partake in the title race, and Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side will be gunning for three points at Turf Moor.
Burnley have endured a patchy few months, but still sit five points clear of the drop zone. Sean Dyche might have to do without Jimmy Dunne, Jay Rodriguez, Charlie Taylor and Dwight McNeil, who are all injury doubts. United are boosted by the return of Edinson Cavani from a three-match ban, and the Uruguayan might immediately come into the Reds’ starting lineup. Facundo Pellistri is out with COVID-19, while Victor Lindelöf, Eric Bailly, Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba all face late fitness tests.
