Man United were back in action on Monday evening against Newcastle, having seen their previous two games against Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion postponed due to a coronavirus outbreak in the camp.
The 20-time English champions were going in search of a fourth straight Premier League victory against the Magpies but were forced to settle for a point in an underwhelming performance, as Edinson Cavani cancelled out an opener from Allan Saint-Maximin in a 1-1 draw at St James’ Park.
Man United have now picked up seven points from their three league matches under interim boss Ralf Rangnick, but the German was critical of his team’s performance on Monday, and the Red Devils now face back-to-back home fixtures against Burnley and Wolverhampton Wanderers either side of the new year.
The hosts are currently seventh in the table, seven points behind fourth-placed Arsenal but with two games in hand on the Gunners, while they are two points behind sixth-placed Tottenham Hotspur on the same number of fixtures after Antonio Conte‘s side were held at Southampton on Tuesday.
Man United have won their last two league games against Burnley, including a 3-1 success at Old Trafford last term, but the Clarets recorded a 2-0 victory in Manchester during the 2019-20 campaign.
Man United will again be without the services of Paul Pogba due to a thigh problem, while Victor Lindelof is absent, having recently tested positive for coronavirus.
Bruno Fernandes will also miss out here, with the Portugal international picking up his fifth yellow card of the campaign against Newcastle, which could open the door for Donny van de Beek to feature.
Jadon Sancho and Cavani both impressed off the bench against Newcastle and could now earn starts, with Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford potentially dropping to the bench.
Nemanja Matic and Luke Shaw are also in contention, but Rangnick is expected to resist the temptation to change his midfield two or defensive unit for Thursday’s contest.
As for Burnley, Ashley Barnes and Connor Roberts remain unavailable for selection, but the break has allowed the Clarets to recover Maxwel Cornet from injury, and the Ivorian should be in the starting side.
There are not expected to be any surprises in the away side’s XI, with Chris Wood joining Cornet in attack, while Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Dwight McNeil will play in the wide areas.
