Since losing their first ever Premier League meeting against them in August 2009, Man Utd are unbeaten in their last eight against Burnley (W5 D3), keeping six clean sheets in that time.
Burnley are winless in their last 19 away games against United in all competitions (D7 L12), since winning 5-2 in a top-flight game in September 1962.
United have a higher win rate in games played on Tuesdays (62.5%) than any other side in Premier League history, winning 30 of their 48 such matches.
Tuesday is the only day of the week on which Burnley manager Sean Dyche has never lost a Premier League game, winning three and drawing two of his five games.
Since beating Chelsea on the opening weekend of the 2017-18 season, Burnley are winless in their last eight away league games against ‘big six’ sides, losing the last four in a row by an aggregate score of 1-14.
45% of Burnley’s 22 points won in the Premier League this season have come in their last four games (W3 D1 L0), while 41% of Man Utd’s 44 points this season have come in their six games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Burnley have opened the scoring in just six different Premier League games this season (W4 D1 L1) – only Cardiff (3) have done so in fewer matches.
Romelu Lukaku has had a hand in six goals in his six Premier League starts against Burnley, scoring four and assisting two.
Marcus Rashford has scored in his last four Premier League appearances for Man Utd – should he score in this match, he would be the third youngest player to score in five in a row in the Premier League, behind Nicolas Anelka in 1998 and Jose Antonio Reyes in 2004.
The dream start continues for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer!
I still think United are not good enough defensively but they’ll have too much going forward against a Burnley side who come into the game off the back of a 5-0 drubbing at Manchester City.
So it’s a win for United and nine in a row for Solskjaer. Wow!
PAUL PREDICTS: 3-1
