Manchester United side who appear to take one step forward before taking two steps backwards under Ralf Rangnick travel to bottom side Burnley on Wednesday evening.
On the face of it, United should be strong favourites. While the manner of their FA Cup exit was disappointing, wins against Brentford and West Ham United prior to the recent international break had raised hope of at least some sort of consistency.
Still, Burnley have tightened things up of late, keeping clean sheets against Arsenal and Watford and look exactly the kind of team United struggle against given they generally operate with a low block, albeit Sean Dyche’s are at their lowest ebb in years.
Anything but a United win at Turf Moor, however, would likely put more pressure on Rangnick’s position heading into tricky games against Southampton and Brighton.

Burnley 1-1 Man United
It finishes all square at Turf Moor!
United completely dominant in the first-half, couldn’t finish the game off and they’ve paid for it in the second half.
Rodriguez earns Burnley what could prove to be a crucial point for them.
90+3 mins: Dreadful place for McNeil to lose it, United can counter.
Ronaldo shoots… blocked. Lingard shoots… blocked. Corner.
Swung in, Maguire wins the header but it’s just wide! That could well be that.
90+2 mins: Lingard’s cross looks to be heading straight towards Pope… but the goalkeeper is suddenly looking worried and tips it behind for a corner.
Pressure really on now…
Comes to Fernandes on the edge of the box, drilled back in and once again Mee is there to clear.
90 mins: How long will be added on? United will be hoping for five minutes… they get four.
Great ball from Elanga and Ronaldo has room in the box, just slightly too high though and his header is well over the bar.
88 mins: Goalscorer Rodriguez is done for the night, as Dyche brings on Barnes to replace him.
Sancho down wanting a free-kick, doesn’t get it.
86 mins: Elanga on for Rashford, he’s got a few minutes to make the difference for the visitors.
United continue to have plenty of possession, struggling to turn that into anything more though.
83 mins: McNeil does well for the hosts, comes in and Weghorst somehow gets an effort on goal.
Beat Maguire to it, but no pace on the effort and couldn’t really direct it.
81 mins: Lingard is on for McTominay.
Shaw tries to inject some more pace into the build-up, but he runs into a wall of Burnley shirts. Dalot then swings a ball straight out of play.
Time running out for United….
78 mins: Pogba furious as Brownhill drags him back – Frenchman throws his gloves off in frustration.
Even Ronaldo decides it’s too far out for a shot. Comes to Maguire, he turns well and wins a corner.
Shaw swings it into the box, but once again a Burnley head is there. Rashford keeps the attack going, gets to the byline and pulls it back to Varane. Wonderful flick from him… WHAT A BLOCK! Huge defending from Mee to deny Varane.
