and live on Freeview channel 276
The Red Devils sit fourth in the table, while the Clarets are bottom, but with several games in hand.
United will be looking to extend their unbeaten run at Burnley, having not lost at Turf Moor since 2009.
Ralf Rangnick’s side has been training hard ahead of the game and are looking to bounce back from their fourth round FA Cup exit to Middlesbrough on Friday.
Ahead of tonight’s game, let’s take a look at three things we spotted during Red Devils training this week.
Lingard, Cavani and Lindelof return
Jesse Lingard, Edinson Cavani and Victor Lindelof returned to training this week after the former was given time off due to personal reasons. The Englishman was heavily linked with a departure from Old Trafford during the January transfer window, but a move didn’t materialise.
Cavani is back following international duty with Uruguay where he scored an overhead-kick in their 4-1 win over Venezuela, while Lindelof missed the cup clash with Middlesbrough due to illness, but is now in contention for a place in the starting XI on Wednesday.
Trio passed fit to play
Jason Sancho, Bruno Fernandes and Raphael Varane have all trained ahead of Tuesday’s fixture. The trio were taken off during United’s defeat to Middlesbrough, with Red Devils’ midfield duo recovering from knocks, while the latter was withdrawn in extra-time, but has passed fit to face Burnley.
Young guns in contention
Anthony Elanga, Hannibal Mejbri and Matej Kovar have been training with the first team this season and could be in contention for minutes on Tuesday, though the latter’s chances are minimal.
