Manchester United were dealt another blow when they went down 2-0 to runaway leaders, Liverpool last time out, with Virgil van Dijk and Mohammed Salah scoring the decisive goals for the Reds.

Thus with Chelsea slipping to Newcastle a day before, United failed to make the most of their rivals dropping points and so remain five points adrift of the top four as the race continue to intensify.

They have the chance to get back to winning ways when they welcome Burnley, and the reverse fixture in December saw them emerge 2-0 victors.

Burnley on their part, ended a four-game losing streak when they came from behind to beat Leicester City 2-1 same day their opponents lost to Liverpool. Chris Wood and Ashley Westwood struck either side of Harvey Barnes’s effort for the Foxes as the Clarets won their first league game of 2020.

A tough task await them in Manchester however, as they have not managed a win over United in a run of ten previous meetings, stretching since 2009.
