Burnley v Manchester United: match preview

Burnley have not made the blistering start they did last season. Sean Dyche’s side have yet to record a league victory and have conceded seven goals in their past two games. Dyche conceded his side were second best at Fulham and some sort of reaction might normally be expected against Manchester United, except the visitors themselves will be highly motivated as they look to avoid a third successive defeat and the “crisis” inquest that would surely follow.
