    I'd like to see the same team that started against Spurs. But I expect there'll be some tinkering.

    Fuchs or Chilwell?

    Fuchs doesn't get back into the team unless someone is seriously injured or flogged.

    Would be disappointed to see Chilwell lose his place.

    Shinji too. Although I could see a case for Gray or Slimani as Burnley will defend very differently from Spurs.

    We don’t play until next Saturday after this, so no tinkering for me.

    Same team and i think same result but maybe 2-0 Vardy Iborra

    Another chance to take points off of a top 6 side. No doubt Chris Wood will be looking forward to scoring against us too. Keep the same side as Tuesday and get at them from the start.

    2-0 Leicester. Glover, Stringfellow.

    Burnley have the same record in last 5 games as Man Utd, won 4, lost 1. It's not going to be as easy as I might have thought before the season started, as Burnley really improved their 'away' form this year.

    They are a bastard to play against. And, yes, Wood is a genuine threat.

    That Sean Dyche has done a magic job, wonder how it'll translate now that he's at a top-6 club

    Chilwell was the best player on display against Spurs in my opinion. Seemed to have a new air of confidence about him. Some of his runs were so good I almost thought he was wasted at left back.

    I think we need to start with the same line up. This is going to be an interesting game as Burnley are flying and I quite fancy them to pinch a champions league place. We are only 8 behind them and can make three of those up at the weekend ;)

    Burnley were the first team to beat us at the new "Walkers Stadium" after making us change ends and play towards the Kop in the first half.

    Burnley are massively overachieving. They are getting a ridiculous points return for their attacks/goals. It cannot continue for much longer.

    They are tough and they're brilliantly drilled though. And they have someone who is proving to be a excellent manager.

    They will target our weaknesses defensively and we have the talent to create chances against them.

    First goal is absolutely vital.

    Fuchs or Chilwell depends upon whether Burnley have a really good right winger or not.

    Chilwell is great going forwards, but Fuchs is still probably the better defender.

    A big call for Puel as Chilwell probably gives us better attacking options.

    I would definitely start Shinji.

    No chance.

    They’ve had a great start and deserve due credit. But I think they’ll end up much closer to, if not in, the bottom half.

    That was what most people said about us two years ago.

    Just what I was thinking.

    Spurs, Arsenal, and Liverpool are massively flawed. Even Chelsea have the odd wobble. While it's unlikely I think an outsider, like Burnley, could nick the 4th spot.
