    RAINING SHOTS

    No player has had more shots without scoring in the Premier League this season than Burnley’s Josh Brownhill (27).

    Indeed, Brownhill hasn’t scored with any of his 33 attempts in the competition since his debut for the Clarets in February 2020.

    ONE TO WATCH

    Man Utd’s Mason Greenwood has scored in each of his last two Premier League appearances, having scored in just one of his first 23 games this season.

    The 19-year-old has scored 13 Premier League goals in total, with only Wayne Rooney (15) scoring more as a teenager for the Red Devils in the competition.

    TABLE CHECK

    Man Utd are still occupying 2nd spot in the Premier League, and Burnley are JUST above the relegation zone.

    Elsewhere in today's games, Arsenal and Fulham are drawing at the Emirates.

    As long as Fulham don't win, Burnley will be happy.

    GOOD AFTERNOON

    And welcome to the live blog for Man Utd vs Burnley!

    Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's men could take another big step towards confirming their place inside the top four and qualifying for next season's Champions League if they beat Burnley today.

    The Red Devils beat Jose Mourinho's Tottenham 3-1 last week, dealing a blow to Spurs' top-four ambitions.

    Man Utd are currently on 63 points with seven games to go, and they're eight points clear of 4th place West Ham with a game in hand.

    Burnley, on the other hand, are down in 17th place on 33 points, just above the relegation zone.

    They do, however, have two games in hand on 18th place Fulham and one game in hand on now-relegated Sheffield United.

    In terms of team news, Man Utd starman Marcus Rashford was left on the bench for last Thursday's Europa League second leg quarter-final.

    But the forward should be ok to start today.

    Centre-back duo Eric Bailly and Phil Jones will miss today's game alongside Anthony Martial.

    And Edinson Cavani is set to keep in his upfront after scoring in both of his last two appearances.

    As for Burnley, Ashley Barnes, Robbie Brady and Kevin Long will all miss out.

    Jay Rodriguez could return for the visitors, adding some much-needed firepower upfront.

    The teamsheets are due to be released in half an hour so don't go anywhere!
