Manchester United travel to Turf Moor tonight in a game live on Sky Sports.
United go into the game with the opportunity to go three clear at the top of the table. With a game in hand, they currently sit in second place behind leaders Liverpool on goal difference.
This Sunday, the two rivals come face to face at Anfield. The Red Devils can go into the game with a psychological advantage should they avoid defeat against Sean Dyche’s men.
The Clarets, however, do come into the game off the back of a good recent run of form.
Since their heavy defeat at the hands of Manchester City at the end of November, they have suffered just one defeat and conceded only three goals in their previous six matches in the league.

Phil Jones and Marcus Rojo are still out on the sidelines. New signing Amad Diallo, meanwhile, could be in line to make his debut.
For opponents Burnley, winger Dwight McNeill faces a late fitness test. As too does full-back Charlie Taylor and forward Jay Rodriguez.

United’s terrific away form sees them go into the game as strong favourites, priced at 4/9.
Burnley, meanwhile, are at 13/2 while the draw, which would also see United claim top spot, is 15/4.
