Old Trafford - Premier League
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer welcomes Burnley to Old Trafford on Tuesday night, looking to extend his eight game winning streak as Manchester United
United won 2-0 at Turf Moor, with Belgian international Romelu Lukaku scoring twice that day. The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last eight games against Sean Dyche's side.
Manchester United have no fresh injury news ahead of the visit of Burnley, with Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling and Marouane Fellaini all still sidelined.
Burnley are without defender Ben Mee, who has collected his fifth booking of the Premier League season, however Phil Bardsley and Johann Gudmunsson should be fit to play after recovering from injuries. Matthew Lowton, Robbie Brady and Aaron Lennon are all still out injured.
Manchester United v Burnley Predictions and Preview
Solskjaer has been trans-formative in his time at Old Trafford, with a 3-1 win away at Arsenal in the FA Cup last week his biggest achievement yet. It is back to league duty in midweek, and with six league wins already, under the Norweigan, they look in consistent mood ahead of Burnley.
Dyche's side look to have turned a corner in terms of relegation fears, but they have won just once in their last eight Premier League away games. That is a damning statistic for the Lancashire side ahead of the short trip into Manchester, and Dyche knows their key points will be won elsewhere this season.
Solskjaer should make it nine wins on the bounce, as he furthers his case to be given the job on a permanent basis, and a United win is at 1/4.
In front of their home fans, United have been in great form, scoring 11 goals at Old Trafford since he came in, and they should continue that on Tuesday night - with an over 2.5 total goals scored bet available at 8/15.
Manchester United to win 3-0 at 8/1
United look a new team under Solskjaer, with their forward players attacking with freedom and scoring goals for fun as they climb the table. They now have a real chance of sneaking into the top four, and that will require a statement in this match.
Marcus Rashford to score anytime at 10/11
England international Rashford has really benefited from Solskjaer's arrival, and he is bang in form ahead of this game. He has five goals in the eight games under the new regime, and his speed and finishing ability will cause real problems for Burnley.
