Where to Watch

Kick-off is set for 7.45pm GMT. There is no live TV coverage of the game in the UK. Live updates on the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Manchester United will be looking to get back to winning ways when they host relegation battlers Burnley at Old Trafford, after struggling against West Ham United on Sunday.

Louis van Gaal's men needed an injury time goal from Daley Blind to secure a point at Upton Park, but will now look to get all three and consolidate their place in the top four.

United have the second best home record in the Premier League this season and the manager will want his team to get back to their fluent best, after West Ham manager Sam Allardyce branded their style as 'long-ball' football.

Meanwhile, Burnley are staring down at relegation and come into this match on the back of a 2-2 home draw against West Bromwich Albion, a game in which they blew a two-goal lead.

Sean Dyche will be aware that the results in their next six fixtures will decide their fate in the league as following their clash against United, they then face Chelsea, Swansea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Southampton, Tottenham, Arsenal and Everton.

That is a fixture list that will intimidate any side in the Premier League. The manager will hope for a good start against the 20-time English champions ahead of the season defining run of fixtures.

What Managers Say

Louis van Gaal [on Sam Allardyce's 'long-ball' claim]: "We can play along the floor against Cambridge and we did, so it is not true what you are saying. Because of Big Sam, you are talking in behind, but it is not like that. I think we have played attractive games and less attractive games, with every club I think, so there's no discussion."

Sean Dyche: "It's the challenge we all wanted. I want it, the players want it, the town wanted it, and the club wanted it. You can't then go, 'Oh, they're big games against big clubs'. Yes they are and that's exactly what we were expecting."
