Burnley's English manager Sean Dyche (L) greets Manchester United's Norwegian manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during the English Premier League football match at Turf Moor in Burnley, north west England on January 12, 2021.

Sean Dyche's side can make it five successive games unbeaten at the Theatre of Dreams - the club's longest run on the road against a single opponent - if they're able to add another point or three on the board.

The Clarets had drawn three games on the bounce on United's own patch, but won for the first time since 1962 when goals from Chris Wood and Jay Rodriguez settled the game last season.

Burnley have won just twice in their last 12 games in the top flight and victory for the hosts would be the first time since the 1975-76 season that United have completed a league double over their opponents.
