Man Utd v Burnley team news

Solskjaer told his pre-match press conference that he hopes to call upon Marcus Rashford and Eric Bailly here.

Bailly was not in the squad against Granada on Thursday but has apparently tested negative for Covid and should return to training ahead of this one.

Rashford was on the bench for the 2-0 win but didn’t come on and Solskjaer said he will make a decision over the England star’s involvement on the day of the game.

Anthony Martial and Phil Jones are long-term absentees, although the latter was spotted in training at Carrington for the first time in 2021 earlier this week.

Our prediction: United v Burnley

On paper, this is a game you’d expect United to win.

But Solskjaer hasn’t guided United to a win over Burnley at Old Trafford, which proves Sean Dyche’s side are capable of springing a surprise.

Burnley lost 5-0 at Manchester City and 4-0 at Spurs which should encourage United that goals are on the cards if they play as well as they can.

That said, the Clarets won 1-0 at Anfield in January and 2-0 at Old Trafford last season, so they can’t be underestimated.

After a midweek of European action, a routine win to close the gap on City and end the poor recent home run against Burnley would do nicely.

Our prediction: United 2-0 Burnley
