Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Burnley

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday's Premier League showdown with Burnley.

Manchester United face Burnley at Old Trafford on Wednesday in the Premier League, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side keen to keep the pressure up in the chase for the top four.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the midweek clash.
