Burnley v United: Essential information

Friday 27 December 2019 12:09

Manchester United will be hoping to extend the Christmas cheer when we travel to Turf Moor on Saturday to take on Burnley.

The Reds enjoyed a straightforward 4-1 win over Newcastle United on Boxing Day  barely 48 hours before our clash with the Clarets  and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be looking for a similarly convincing showing in Lancashire.

During this busy festive period, it is easy to lose track of all the fixtures, so we’ve rounded up everything you need to know ahead of our next match…

Saturday 28 December | Premier League | Turf Moor | 19:45 GMT | Live build-up on MUTV from 18:30 GMT | Referee: Mike Dean.


Saturday’s game will be shown live in the UK on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League. Alternatively, you can keep across all of the action via MUTV. Prior to kick-off, subscribers can watch all of the build-up via the ‘Match Day Live’ show from 18:30 GMT. This will then be followed by live radio commentary of the match. Keep up to date with everything that happens on and the Official App, where you can track live data and player statistics in the Match Centre. MUTV will show a re-run of the post-match reaction at regular intervals throughout the following day, while the full highlights will be shown from 18:00 GMT.

Mike Dean will oversee proceedings at Turf Moor. It will be the third United game this year that the experienced referee has taken charge of and the 51-year-old has proved something of a bad luck charm for the Reds so far, with us failing to win either of the two games he has officiated: the 1-1 draw with Southampton in August and a 1-0 loss to Newcastle two months later. Dean actually refereed this fixture two years ago, when we won 1-0 thanks to Anthony Martial’s second-half strike. Ian Hussin and Darren Cann will be the assistant referees, while Anthony Taylor will assume the role of fourth official. Michael Oliver and Lee Betts will oversee VAR checks from their Stockley Park base.
