Burnley v Manchester United

Robbie Blake's strike in that 1-0 win is the only goal the Red Devils have conceded in their last nine visits to Turf Moor in all competitions, keeping eight clean sheets.

Speedster Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is expected to make his first start for the club on the left-wing.

Romelu Lukaku, probably the most debated name in the Premier League this season.

Burnley themselves could lose their 7 place in the points table, to Leicester City, who are just three points away, if they are not able to hold United or beat them this weekend, making this game an important one for both teams and the shape of the points table. Only centre-back Eric Bailly and striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic are among the notable absentees, per Sheridan.

The good news though for United is the fact that Ashley Young is available for selection again after completing his three-match ban, but Luke Shaw is likely to still keep his place at left-back given his run of good form which hasn't gone unnoticed by the United boss. They will also be without the likes of Tom Heaton, Stephen Ward and Chris Wood, who could be back in the next few weeks. With only one blank from his last six appearances, his star has begun to fade with errors in commanding his box and collecting high balls coming into his game. Ashley Young, though, is set to return to the matchday squad after serving the final of his three-match suspension in the game against Stoke earlier this week. Used as an outlet to relieve pressure on the defence as well as the obvious attacking threat, Brady's absence has also coincided with a loss of form for Jeff Hendrick. Having only managed 19 goals so far in the season, i.e less than a goal per game, the Clarets are among the lowest scorers in the division (only 3 have scored less). On Saturday, the Clarets could be without as many as seven first-team players.

Nice to see Lukaku getting some well-deserved praise.

Manchester United, on the other hand, have kicked off 2018 with a bang, winning each of their Premier League fixtures in convincing fashion.

The focus on Saturday, meanwhile, will be to defend in numbers, with two blocks of four in front of the goalkeeper, remaining compact to force Manchester United wide.
