Manchester United welcome Burnley to Old Trafford in the Premier League on Thursday as they look to put the disappointment over their draw against Newcastle earlier this week behind them.
United needed an intervention in the second half from substitute Edinson Cavani at St James’ Park to save a point against a team from Newcastle with just one win throughout the season.
Burnley, meanwhile, are catching up on their squad after a series of forced launches by Covid-19, with their final outing all the way back on December 12 in a goalless draw with West Ham.

The recent postponement of matches against Brentford and Brighton for Man Utd has given Rangnick the opportunity to get his injured stars back in the group.
Raphael Varane and Edinson Cavani returned from their long injury spells against Newcastle, although Anthony Martial was absent with a knee injury after it was revealed that the Frenchman wants to leave the club.

There will probably be some rust in the Burnley squad after fourteen weeks without games, although the break can see forward Ashley Barnes returning to the Clarets.
Maxwel Cornet is also likely to be involved after he missed the goalless draw against West Ham with a minor strain.

United are unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 meetings with the Clarets and have won on seven different occasions.
However, Burnley will be comforted by their trip to Old Trafford in January 2020 when goals from Jay Rodriguez and Chris Wood drove the Clarets to a famous victory in Manchester in the Premier League.

The match can be a slow burner given both sides’ lack of match sharpness due to the recent launches.
However, the extra time given on the training ground can be beneficial for Rangnick as he aims to permeate an energetic style of play at Old Trafford.
Burnley’s fight this season has been well documented and it is difficult to see United stumble at home in the middle of the week.
Prediction: Man Utd 3-0 Burnley
