Everything you need to know ahead of the match
Injuries and positive Covid tests have meant both Manchester United and Burnley have had matches called off recently, but they are both back in action at Old Trafford tonight.
The Red Devils were fairly dismal against Newcastle in a 1-1 desenhar just a couple of days ago and now face the team level on points with the Magpies in the relegation zone.
As for the Clarets, they are still searching for just a second win of the Liga Premiada season and haven’t scored since the third week of November.
Sean Dyche will be hoping Maxwel Cornet is fully fit after a very impressive debut season at Turf Moor so far.

Quais são as novidades do time?
Bruno Fernandes is suspended after a fifth yellow card, with Paul Pogba out injured and Scott McTominay likely to join him. Victor Lindelof has Covid but Eric Bailly could play after returning to his club before another departure for the AFCON.
Dale Stephens may miss out with Covid for the Clarets, but there are few other concerns aside from Ashley Barnes’ injury.
MNU – De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Shaw, Matic, Fred, Van de Beek, Sancho, Ronaldo, Cavani
BUR – Papa, Lowton, Mee, Tarkowski, Taylor, Gudmundsson, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil, Cornet, Wood
On home soil we can expect a response from United, at least in terms of more energy and shots on goal if not necessarily in a hugely improved all-round performance. If they find the breakthrough they’ll surely go on to win, with the Clarets still struggling for goals of their own. Unido 2-1 Burnley.
