Are we going to have late drama here? United are dictating and probing while Burnley are still looking dangerous on the break.

75' 

Play stopped as Tarkowski receives treatment for a knock.

73' 

STAT: United's four league defeats this season have all come at Old Trafford. They've only twice lost more often at home in a Premier League season: 2013-14 (seven defeats) and 2001-02 (six).

71' 

Fernandes meets Shaw's left-wing cross but it's well kept out by Peacock-Farrell.

DID YOU KNOW? Burnley can set a new Premier League club record of five away games unbeaten against a single opponent.

Maguire looks to make amends for losing Tarkowski for the equaliser but he can only head well wide from a right-wing corner.

Dwight McNeil sees a goal-bound shot blocked by his teammate Brownhill after good hold up play from Wood on the left.

Henderson has looked wobbly all evening. He comes flying to the edge of his box to try and deal with a high ball that is Maguire's all day. The confusion almost provides Burnley with a gift, but it doesn't quite fall for the visitors and United escape.

HT: Man Utd 0-0 Burnley.

45+1' 

CLOSE! Wood caches Henderson as he slides in to try and convert at the far post after another deep free kick was flicked towards goal. The keeper is winded but should be okay. That'll do us for the first 45.

One minute added.

39' 

CLOSE! Greenwood can't quite time his slide to convert Rashford's superb volleyed cross from the right.

37' 

At the other end, VAR checks as Peacock-Farrell comes too far off his line and almost catches Rashford as he chased a through ball. It was rash from the keeper, but he then stood still and did not touch the United man as he lost his footing.

35' 

Wood continues to cause United's defence real concern.

33' 

Lots of rumours about a European Super League in the media and on social. It would obviously affect Man United. It's guaranteed to have a very mixed reception.

Lowton delivers a superb early cross from the right that Wood somehow meets between two defenders, but he can't divert his header on target.

30' 

Pogba rises highest to meet the resulting right-wing corner but flicks his header ay over the top.

29' 

Rashford saunters in from the left and thunders in a strike from a narrow angle that Peacock-Farrell is forced to tip over the bar.

28' 

Feisty.

Fernandes finds himself on the end of a couple of rough-house challenges. He's not best pleased but Burnley will be happy if it rattles him and affects his focus.

21' 
19' 

Greenwood takes down Pogba's sumptuous ball to the right and lashes in a low cross that Peacock-Farrell does well to hang on tight with.

It's been a very bright start from Burnley but they almost fall behind. McTominay sees a low shot from just inside the area blocked after good build up down the right.

Henderson got away with a howler there. He's clearly wary of Burnley's aerial threat.

Wow! Burnley have the ball in the net within seconds as Wood beats Henderson to a ball from the right and heads home. The forward was offside though and it won't count.

KICK OFF! Burnley get us underway after a minute of silence in memory of Prince Philip.

Sean Dyche: “We’ve had a few good results there in recent seasons, but it’s still an incredibly difficult place to go. United are in good form again this season, having put a lot of wins together and being unbeaten in 23 or so. They’re a good outfit, and you have to go there are respect them, for sure. But when the whistle blows, respect goes out of the window and that’s how I want my team to think.”

- 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on United’s unlikely hopes of winning the title: “Of course we will never give up. Man United will never ever give up. This team, this club has had too many setbacks, too many great comebacks to have that in our DNA. But is it realistic, no because when you have a team so consistent as Man City have been you don’t expect them to lose three games out of the last six but as long as we do our job we know we want to finish the season strong. So one game at a time.”

- 

Burnley are unbeaten in their past four Premier League away games against Manchester United (W1 D3). The only team to avoid defeat in five consecutive Premier League visits to Old Trafford is Chelsea, who did so in six consecutive fixtures between 1994 and 1998.
