Man Utd have the highest PL win-rate for Tuesday fixtures, with 62.5 per cent, but Burnley manager Sean Dyche is undefeated in his five PL matches played on a Tuesday.

Burnley have won 45 per cent of their 22 PL points in their last four matches, while Man Utd have won 41 per cent of their 44 points in their six outings under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer could become the first-ever manager to win his first seven PL matches in charge of a club. He is currently level with Carlo Ancelotti (Chelsea) and Pep Guardiola (Manchester City) on six.

Marcus Rashford can become the third-youngest player to score in five successive PL appearances, behind Nicolas Anelka (1998) and Jose Antonio Reyes (2004).
