Manchester United are looking to make it nine wins from nine under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when they welcome Burnley to Old Trafford tonight.
Six wins in the Premier League along with Friday night’s FA Cup win at Arsenal have seen the club legend get off to a perfect start in the United dugout.
United are now level on points with fifth place Arsenal and just three off fourth place Chelsea.
Given their upcoming fixtures, Solskjaer will be hopeful of cutting that deficit further.
Manchester United vs Burnley preview: Chris Smalling in contention for the return
This will be the 128th meeting between the two sides with United picking up 61 wins in that time.
Burnley have a respectable 41 wins to their name – their last coming in 2009.
The Clarets have left with a point in their last two trips to Old Trafford, however.
Chris Smalling is edging closer to a first-team return after his recent foot problem and could be available midweek.
Marcos Rojo and Marouane Fellaini are the club’s only other injury absentees.
Solskjaer should restore a number of first XI picks, with David De Gea, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial likely to return after being rested against Arsenal.
However, Solskjaer may also rest a couple of starters such as Nemanja Matic, United face a Champions League clash against PSG and League ties versus Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City all within the next two months.
Man Utd XI: De Gea; Young, Jones, Lindelof, Shaw; Herrera, Pogba, Fred; Mata, Rashford, Martial
