PREDICTION
Burnley will go to Old Trafford intent on frustrating Mourinho's men for as long as possible with the aim to nick a goal on the counter attack or from set pieces. United know that nothing less than a win will suffice and on paper they should edge it but expect a tight and low scoring affair.

MEMORABLE MEETING
Goalless draws are not usually the most memorable games but this one at Old Trafford last season certainly was. Tom Heaton would have the most column inches written about him as the former Manchester United goalkeeper withstood everything that his previous employers threw at him. It was a frustrating afternoon for the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic as they could not breakdown a very stubborn Burnley resistance.
