THE TEAM NEWS

BURNLEY

  • Burnley narrowly lost at Goodison Park on Boxing Day but they have to bounce back immediately as they face Man Utd in a Lancashire derby.
  • Boss Sean Dyche can welcome back Hendrick after suspension and he will come back into the side with Brady likely to drop to the bench.
  • Wood looked to be carrying a slight knock when he came off against Everton so Howe may use this opportunity to bring Barnes back in.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Pope; Bardsley, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Hendrick, Westwood, Cork, McNeil; Rodriguez, Barnes

Unavailable:

Doubtful: Lennon (Illness), Gibson (Injured), Wood (Injured)

MAN UTD

  • Man Utd got back to winning ways in style on Boxing Day after their shock loss to Watford as they took Newcastle apart 4-1 at Old Trafford.
  • The only real negative from that win was the injury to McTominay and he is expected to face a spell on the sidelines which is a big blow.
  • Pogba may get his first start after returning from injury while Lingard could also come back in unless Andreas Pereira keeps his place.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Pogba, Fred; Greenwood, Lingard, Rashford; Martial

Unavailable: Bailly (Injured), Fosu-Mensah (Injured), Rojo (Injured), McTominay (Injured)

Doubtful: Dalot (Injured), Tuanzebe (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Burnley have gone back to basics in recent matches with their last three all containing just one goal each. They will have to be at their best to stop this United attack that looked formidable against Newcastle and Rashford and co should eventually be able to break Burnley down at Turf Moor.
