Burnley vs Manchester United: Prediction,team news, h2h results, odds

Burnley forward Lyle Foster begins a three-match ban as a result of his red card at Nottingham Forest on Monday.

Manager Vincent Kompany has no fresh injury concerns, with Darko Churlinov, Hjalmar Ekdal and Michael Obafemi all still sidelined.

Manchester United could welcome back Mason Mount and Raphael Varane, who both returned to training this week.

Midfielder Sofyan Amrabat has overcome a back issue and may make his debut, while Harry Maguire hopes to be fit.

Erik ten Hag remains without a host of players, including Luke Shaw, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Antony.
