Manchester United will hope to climb to the top of the Premier League table when they host Burnley for their postponed match at Turf Moor on Tuesday.
The Clarets have recovered superbly from a frustrating start to the season and are now slowly but surely moving up the Premier League table.
Burnley have faced defeat in just one of their last seven games across all competitions, having tightened things up at the back.
Their most recent result was a win over MK Dons in the FA Cup, with the game going to penalty shootouts.
United, on the other hand, have continued to take big steps forward under the tutelage of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.
Like Burnley, the Red Devils had also made a slow start to their Premier League campaign, spending a few weeks in the bottom half.
However, heading into Tuesday’s clash, the Red Devils now have the chance to climb to the summit of the top-flight.
The corresponding fixture last season saw United beat Burnley 2-0, courtesy goals by Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.
Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters, Gudmundsson, Westwood, Brownhill, Brady, Barnes, Wood
Man Utd XI (4-3-1-2): Gea, Bissaka, Lindeloef, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Pogba, Fernandes, Rashford, Martial
Kick off is at 21:15 (GMT +1).
