Burnley vs Manchester United live score and goal updates as Jose Mourinho's men travel to Turf Moor

Jose Mourinho will not consider Henrikh Mkhitaryan for Manchester United’s trip to Burnley.

Mkhitaryan will be left out of United’s squad for the second straight game while negotiations continue with Arsenal over a swap deal that would see Alexis Sanchez move in the opposite direction.

Mirror Sport understands Sanchez left Arsenal’s team hotel last night just before 11pm and was bound for Manchester to complete his move to Old Trafford.

Ashley Young is back from suspension and comes in at left-back, with Daley Blind picking up a problem that could rule him out along with Eric Bailly (ankle) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (knee).

Scott Arfield returns to the Burnley line-up for Saturday’s clash with Manchester United after shrugging off a hamstring strain sustained in the New Year’s Day defeat to Liverpool.

Arfield’s return would be a major boost to Burnley boss Sean Dyche, who will be without striker Jon Walters for up to eight weeks after the 34-year-old underwent knee surgery.

Defender Stephen Ward (knee) and striker Chris Wood (leg) are both making good progress but will not be in contention this weekend, while Tom Heaton (shoulder) and Robbie Brady (knee) remain long-term absentees.

Burnley: Pope, Bardsley, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Cork, Defour, Berg Gudmundsson, Hendrick, Arfield, Barnes

Subs: Lowton, Nkoudou, Westwood, Wells, Lindegaard, Long, Vokes

Manchester United: De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Jones, Young; Matic, Pogba; Mata, Lingard, Martial; Lukaku

Subs: Romero, Rojo, Shaw, Fellaini, Herrera, McTominay, Rashford

He has to have a go! With as limited as chances have been, Mourinho won’t like Martial passing up the chance to shoot from 15 yards, on the end of a strong run from the forward. Instead he tries to lay it off for Lingard, but the pass is behind him and the chance is gone.

33 minsminute by minute

Both goalkeepers have been non-factors in this first half. Chances have been non-existent as the bulk of the match is still being played in midfield. Neither side has shown a willingness to take chances and commit men forward, instead sticking to their guns and keeping their stern defensive shape.

Still goalless here

Ouch! Mee charges ahead to put the pressure on Lingard, and winds up clattering through the attacker with a very late challenge. That’s a nasty one, and entirely unavoidable, and it will earn the Burnley skipper a yellow card.

STAT: This is Sean Dyche’s 100th Premier League game in charge – the last three managers whose 100th game in the competition came against Manchester United have all won (Mick McCarthy with Wolves in Feb 2011, Roy Hodgson with Fulham in March 2009 and Steve McClaren with Middlesbrough in Feb 2004).

Rather muted appeals for a penalty from Pogba as he goes down in the area with Bardsley marking him closely as a cross is floated in from the right. There was nothing really in that, though, and referee Mike Dean looks the other way.

25 minsminute by minute

A half-chance for Burnley as a cross in from the left makes it over the head of Young, falling for Hendrick. The attacker lines up a strike and lashes a half-volley at goal, but doesn’t make the best contact as he slices it high and wide of the top corner.

23 minsminute by minute

Manchester United have little margin for error if they are to make the title race more interesting. That means they can’t afford to come out and lay an egg in any of their league matches, with points at a premium. Still plenty of time left here, but they have offered little to inspire thus far.

21 minsminute by minute

Burnley are definitely showing some intensity, but neither side has been able to produce much in terms of quality. It’s all been a bit pedestrian from these two clubs in possession, which has made for a bit of a difficult watch.

19 minsminute by minute

STAT: Manchester United have conceded just one goal in their last nine visits to Turf Moor in all competitions, keeping eight clean sheets.

17 minsminute by minute

The ball is largely being contained in midfield. United have had no answer for Burnley’s pressing and have been unable to transition into attack with any sort of consistency. Burnley, meanwhile, are just a bit sloppy and rushed in trying to get the ball forward when they win it back.

Burnley have shown plenty of energy as they don’t let up with their high press, really doing a nice job of disrupting United’s rhythm in possession. It’s making for a bit of a cagey affair, but that of course will favour the hosts.

Possession

13 minsminute by minute

It’s been a rather sluggish start from the visitors, who have yet to get the ball forward since a couple of early attacks in the opening few minutes. Their first foray into the final third in close to 10 minutes results in a half-chance for Pogba, but his deft little touch on the end of a ball over the top is sent sailing over the bar.

11 minsminute by minute

United have yet to show any real urgency or intent as they’re allowing Burnley their fair share of possession. The hosts don’t look a side lacking in confidence, at least at the moment, but they are lacking a bit of quality when they get the ball forward.

STAT: Only Southampton (10) are on a longer winless run in the Premier League than Burnley (6).

7 minsminute by minute

Better from Burnley as they give their supporters something to cheer about. Pogba is swarmed in possession, with the hosts fervently winning the ball back high up the pitch. Jones makes a terrific defensive challenge to block Barnes’ passage through on goal, before Hendrick’s follow-up is sent straight at De Gea from 20 yards.

5 minsminute by minute

Possession dominated by Manchester United in the opening stages. Despite coming just a few weeks later, this is a very different side than the one that drew 2-2 at Old Trafford in the reverse fixture on Boxing Day – confidence in much shorter supply as the Clarets have picked up just one point, losing three of four matches since that day.

3 minsminute by minute

It’s very chilly at Turf Moor at the moment and is expected to dip below zero before the end of the match. It’s far from the nicest day in Lancashire, but at least the rain has held off.

AND THEY’RE OFF! The fog has crept into Turf Moor as Manchester United get the match underway in their gray away strip, attacking right to left, with Burnley in claret and blue.

Manchester United cruised to victory over Stoke at Old Trafford on Monday, and Jose Mourinho trots out close to the same team today, the lone change coming at full-back where Ashley Young returns from suspension to replace Luke Shaw.

Sean Dyche makes one change from last weekend’s defeat at Crystal Palace. Scott Arfield returns from a hamstring injury and is restored in the side, replacing Sam Vokes who drops to the bench as Ashley Barnes pushes up to lead the line.

SUBS: Rojo, Rashford, Romero, Herrera, Shaw, Fellaini, McTominay.

MANCHESTER UNITED (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Young; Pogba, Matic; Mata, Lingard, Martial; Lukaku.
