Burnley vs Man United live score, updates, lineups, and result from Premier League match at Turf Moor

The final match in the Premier League on Saturday features two teams trying to arrest winless runs when Burnley host Manchester United at Turf Moor.

Burnley drew 1-1 at Nottingham Forest on September 18 to take their first point of the season at the fourth time of asking.

The visitors have lost three of their past four Premier League games, conceding at least twice each time, and were beaten 4-3 at Bayern Munich on Wednesday to open their Champions League campaign.

On the upside for United, they have only lost one of their last 15 meetings with the Clarets – but last season’s Championship winners may feel there has never been a better opportunity to improve that record against out-of-form opponents.

The Sporting News is following the match live and providing updates and highlights below.

20 mins to kickoff: “There’s a big separation between the top teams and the other sides in this league,” Burnley boss Vincent Kompany tells TNT Sports. “We’re up against a top team and I want to see a solid performance – hopefully we’ll get a result for the fans.”

Asked whether his hero status at Manchester City gives him extra incentive in this game, Kompany smiles: “I try to do the job for Burnley. That’s my priority and I don’t need any extra motivation. There’s a lot of work gone into this game and I want them to show it today.”

40 mins to kickoff: Ex-United captain Rio Ferdinand is at Turf Moor and having a chat with TNT Sports.

“You can’t be making excuses,” he says of his former team’s travails. “The players who are out on the pitch should be good enough to be taking the points. They haven’t been this season.”

1 hour to kickoff: Team news! Here’s how Burnley start, with Zeki Amdouni alone up front in the absence of the suspended Lyle Foster, who was shown a straight red card at Nottingham Forest on Monday.

Connor Roberts starts in defence on his 28th birthday.

Jonny Evans, who rejoined Manchester United in the summer, is in defence for the visiots, and Hannibal Mejbri, who scored a superb consolation goal in the 3-1 home defeat to Brighton last Saturday, also starts.

1 hour 20 mins to kickoff: Let’s take a look at how Man United feel about this game – last season’s Red Devils top scorer, Marcus Rashford, has been talking about their dreadful run.

“We’re the ones on the pitch and you don’t want anything more than to get back to that standard that you know you can be at,” the striker told the club website. “And when you get there, you want to push on. So for us, it’s about finding that again. And the only way to do it is sticking together as a team.

“No matter which 11 is playing, who’s on the bench, that’s the squad. And we’re going to need this squad to win this game.

“I don’t care what role you have to play in the squad or what your role is in the management, when Man United are losing games , it’s a difficult place to be. And from periods when we’ve been in this situation before, there’s only one way out.

“Each individual has to look at themselves in a mirror and say that they’ll give everything for the badge. You know you’ve got the ability, otherwise you wouldn’t be here. So we need to tighten up a few things in our defensive organisation, right from the front all the way to the back, and just play the game.”

1 hour 40 mins to kickoff: Burnley chairman Alan Pace – made more recognisable to many by the TV documentary, Mission to Burnley – says he was “proud” of Burnley’s 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest on Monday.

“It was a game full of talking points but I’m pleased to get our first point on the board,” Pace adds in the programme for tonight’s match. “While we have endured a challenging start to the campaign, there have been positives we can take forward and I felt that for large periods of the match, you could really see what we are building here.

“Our new signings are showing excellent signs and I’m excited to see the progress Vincent and the team will undoubtedly continue to make moving forward.”

Kompany, meanwhile, has used his programme notes to emphasise that this season is “all about improvement” for his side.

“We hope you saw that at Nottingham Forest,” he writes. “The better our players get, the bigger the impact they will have.

“This journey is not without challenges but this makes it the most exiting path to be on and hopefully we can surprise more than a few people.”

2 hours to kickoff: Hello and welcome to The Sporting News’ live coverage of the final Premier League game of Saturday’s fixtures between Burnley and Manchester United.

Neither team has won a match this month across five matches combined, so managers Vincent Kompany — a club legend at Manchester City — and Erik ten Hag will both be hopeful that today is the day their fortunes take a turn for the better.

We’ll have team news, stats and all the action live coming up.

United boss Erik ten Hag’s injury list continued to grow, with defenders Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire ruled out of the 4-3 defeat at Bayern in United’s Champions League opener and Lisandro Martinez reportedly missing this fixture due to continued pain in his foot. None of the three featured in his squad against Burnley.

Alongside a host of injuries, Jadon Sancho is not currently involved with the United first team due to a disciplinary issue, with Antony taking a leave of absence to contest allegations of domestic violence in Brazil, which he strongly denies.

Raphael Varane and Mason Mount returned to training a day before the defeat to Bayern, with the France international on the bench at Turf Moor. Kobbie Mainoo and Sofyan Amrabat had been working individually and were not ready to return.

Facundo Pellistri was handed his full Champions League debut on the right wing, with Scott McTominay only a substitute – Ten Hag left Pellistri on the bench but started Hannibal, as well as introducing Jonny Evans in defence.
