Burnley may be looking over their shoulder at the Premier League relegation battle, but their remarkable home record at Turf Moor this season suggests they could cause visitors Manchester United problems on Sunday.
Jose Mourinho's side will make the short journey to Burnley aiming to extend their 22-game unbeaten run and boost their bid for a top-four finish in the Premier League.
However, Burnley are sixth in Premier League home-record table after collecting 32 points from a possible 48 on their own patch.

Burnley's defence has been extremely impressive at Turf Moor, conceding just 14 goals in 16 games. In terms of home form, their defensive record is only bettered by Tottenham, Manchester United, Chelsea and Everton.
The bad news for Burnley, however, is Manchester United boast the third best away form this season. They have registered 30 points from a possible 42 - winning nine games out of 14.
They have scored 25 goals away from home and, after being frustrated at Old Trafford by Sean Dyche's side in October's 0-0 draw - despite firing 38 shots at goal - will be eager to get three points this weekend.
As for Burnley's away record, they have the worst in the division, which highlights just how much they have relied on fortress Turf Moor this season.
