Burnley vs Man Utd - Preview and possible lineups
Premier League game between Burnley and Manchester United at Turf Moor.
The hosts could have Scott Arfield back available following a hamstring strain, though veteran striker Jon Walters will be missing for up to eight weeks after undergoing knee surgery. Defender Steven Ward (knee) and striker Chris Wood (leg) are on right in schedule with their recoveries but they will not feautre in this one, meaning that Charlie Taylor and Sam Vokes should start, despite the former nursing sore ribs. Long-term absentees Tom Heaton (shoulder) and Robbie Brady (knee) remain sidelined.
Manchester United :
United have Ashley Young available once again after he completed a three-game ban, though Luke Shaw is expected to start at left-back. Daley Blind, Eric Bailly, Michael Carrick and Zlatan Ibrahimovic will all miss out, whilst Playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan will not feature as he closes in on a move to Arsenal.
Burnley boss Sean Dyche:
"If you look, every single club, other than the top six, have had various spells like we've just had. "Some, who are struggling a little bit down at the bottom, have had three or four spells. "That's how difficult the Premier League is. When we had a really good run I said the margins were tight and we were on the right side of them. We want to get back to doing that."
Manchester Utd boss Jose Mourinho : 7h
Alexis Sanchez deal "I think clearly everybody knows that we are there and especially when the Arsenal manager speaks so clearly like he did, there is no point in trying to hide or deny it. "But [the transfer] is not done at all, so in this moment [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan is our player, [Alexis] Sanchez is an Arsenal player and with a match tomorrow, I want to switch off and focus on the most important thing, which is the match."
