Man United hope to get on top of the Premier League table for at least until their trip to Anfield when they will face defending Champions; Liverpool.

Speaking ahead of the game tomorrow, Solskjaer said; “I hope so,” when asked if the players will be available for the Burnley match.
“I hope all of them for Liverpool anyway,” he continued via the video link.
“I’m not sure if they’ll make the Burnley one, but we have light training tomorrow [Sunday] and we’ll see on Monday.”
Solskjaer speaks on match importance
With the Burnley match considered important as that would see United 1st placed before the Liverpool game where a draw will be profitable to them as well, Solskjaer added;
“We’re not even halfway through the season yet, I feel that every game in the Premier League is a challenge, is a test.
“Every game gives you a test – Watford today gave us a test; Burnley is one test, Liverpool is another, then you go to Fulham [the following week] which is a different test again. No-one will remember how the league table looked on 12 January 2021.”
