February And March Will Be Make Or Break For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Posted January 29, 2019

Manchester United star Jesse Lingard has joined his other team-mates in praising fairly new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's impact on the club. Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling and Marouane Fellaini all remain out, although the former Fulham defender has been training for a whole week and could be ready to return. The same goes to Jonathan Walters and Johann Gudmunsson. The likes of Pochettino and Blanc are still options for United.

"This is a club that should be fighting for the title, but we are gaining in confidence, and we are going to try to achieve as much as possible from the rest of the season; winning games, hopefully getting into the Champions League places and doing well in the competition".

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Tom Heaton is set to start between the sticks for Burnley, replacing Nick Pope who started the cup tie.

Dyche could stick to a four-man backline comprising of Ben Mee and James Tarkowski in the central defence.

Iceland winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson and right-back Phil Bardsley face late fitness tests, while left-back Robbie Brady is unlikely to feature against United because of a groin injury.

Emery revealed ahead of Friday's FA Cup fourth-round clash that he tried to sign Sanchez for Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 before the Chilean joined United last January.

He said: "It's true that we had conceded a lot of goals in the first half of the season, and in the Premier League it's hard not to concede, but we weren't defending very well".

The 44-year-old Burnley FC fan, who is running to every Burnley away league game this season, will be setting off from Turf Moor at 8am tomorrow.

Sanchez has often been criticised for his form since joining Manchester United in January past year.

Arsenal: The Gunners already saw United this season in early December, and that game finished in a 2-2 draw. Solskjaer's arrival has sparked a massive turnaround of fortunes and the players are looking completely revitalized.

Solskjaer faces hard selection decisions on Tuesday night after Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez made the most of the opportunity when they were recalled to the starting line-up at Arsenal. In fact, Burnley last defeated the Old Trafford side back in 2009, so The Red Devils have a decent edge when it comes to playing The Clarets. However, given the vein of form that the home side are in, they should come out on top on Tuesday night and make it nine wins in nine under Solskjaer.
