    TRIP-PED UP

    Manchester United were very keen on signing Kieran Trippier this month but pulled out when he was handed a ten-week ban, according to the Manchester Evening News.

    Trippier has now appealed his global ban for breaching betting rules and is free to continue playing until the result of his appeal is known.

    The 30-year-old has 18 months left on his Atletico Madrid deal so could be available again for a cut price fee in the summer.

    INTER THEM

    Inter Miami are expected to appoint Phil Neville as their next manager and he could bring two Premier League stars with him from England.

    David Beckham is expected to give his old mate the nod and Neville could soon have Mesut Ozil and Everton's Jonas Lossl at his disposal.

    Former Manchester United man Neville will bring to an end almost three years in charge of England's women's team.

    He is desperate to break into the men's game and will take control of old pal Beckham's MLS side who parted company with Uruguayan coach Diego Alonso last week

    Here's how the team could look under the management of Neville…

    ALD NEWS

    Liverpool icon John Aldridge has threatened to wind up United fans by claiming they'd be outside the top four without Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes.

    Reported in the Liverpool Echo, he said: "You can give the strikers as much finishing as they want or work through drills with the defence but Jurgen Klopp will be making his players aware of what United are good at this week.

    “What they are good at is getting the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford on the ball – they’re the danger.

    “The rest of their team is pretty ordinary, they’d be coming in fifth or sixth place but those two make them into a team."

    'MORE LIKE A MAVERICK'

    Gary Neville wants to see Paul Pogba back on the left flank despite his impressive display against Burnley.

    He told Sky Sports: "I really think Pogba's far better when he plays off that left-hand side forward position because it frees him up.

    "It makes him more like a maverick, he can go and do his little one-on-ones, his little tricks.

    "I think when he plays deeper, he sometimes stands still and plays and tries to look for the killer pass too early."

    Pogba, 27, scored the only goal of the game against Burnley from his midfield role.

    ABIDE WITH THE RULES

    All clubs left in the FA Cup have been warned they will face penalties for breaching Covid regulations.

    Wembley beaks moved to draft the letter to the 33 teams that currently remain in the competition after a series of weekend incidents during the third round.

    The letter was said to “strongly reiterate the importance of complete compliance” with Covid protocols and Government legislation.

    Premier League and EFL bosses will send out similar letters to their individual members as football braces against calls for a shutdown if regulations are not followed.

    MAT'S YOUR LOT

    Nemanja Matic has insisted that United are 'ready' to compete for the title.

    The Red Devils are top of the table following last night's win over Burnley.

    After the game, Matic said: "I think that these sort of wins show that we are ready to compete for the title.

    "Sometimes we have looked like a team who wants to score as soon as possible, then we get panicked.

    "But I think today we showed more maturity, we showed we are more clever."

    SHAW ENOUGH

    Premier League chiefs have revealed why Luke Shaw and Robbie Brady both dodged red cards in a mad minute at Burnley.

    A statement read: "In the 27th minute of Burnley vs. Manchester United, Robbie Brady was shown a yellow card for a foul on Edinson Cavani.

    "On the recommendation of the VAR, referee Kevin Friend went to the Referee Review Area to check for a possible red card for Brady for a denial of a goalscoring opportunity offence and a possible foul by Luke Shaw that was in the same attacking phase of play.

    "When the referee was at the screen, he was first shown the challenge by Shaw on Johann Berg Gudmundsson.

    "He determined that this was a foul and was part of the phase of play that led to the challenge by Brady.

    "The restart was a Burnley free-kick, with Brady’s yellow card rescinded, and a yellow card issued to Shaw."

    BISH'S EFL BASH

    United are looking to loan goalkeeper Nathan Bishop out to the EFL this month.

    The stopper, 21, signed from Southend last year and then put pen to paper on a contract extension on Monday, tying him down at Old Trafford until 2023.

    With Bishop behind David De Gea, Dean Henderson and Sergio Romero in the pecking order – and battling with Paul Woolston and Ondrej Mastny in the Under-23s – the club are trying to find somewhere for him to build experience.

    And it is thought United want to send the former England U20 international to the Championship or League One.

    NEV-ER SAY NEVER

    Gary Neville has predicted that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will make TWO changes for the Liverpool clash.

    The Old Trafford has claimed that Fred and Scott McTominay will return to the line-up on Sunday.

    Speaking on Sky Sports, the pundit said: "The defence looks more solid, it doesn't matter if they play Pogba and Matic tonight or whether Sunday, I'm sure it'll be McTominay and Fred, they're consistent.

    "He's changing the team around, he's rotating and he's getting performances out of all of them, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    "He's taken some criticism himself but at the moment it's going well."

    OLE'S OMEN

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the first United manager to be top of the table as late as this since Sir Alex Ferguson won the title in 2012-13.

    The Red Devils leapfrogged Liverpool on Tuesday night to be the No1 team in English football.

    Paul Pogba's deflected volley was the only goal of the game in a tight win at Burnley.

    It meant United went top of the tree for the first time since September 2017.

    But that was after just four matches as they ended the campaign 19 points behind Manchester City.

    However, with 17 games under their belt and 36 points, no manager since Ferguson left can match this feat from Solskjaer.

    GOOD MORNING UTD FANS

    The Red Devils went to the top of the Premier League and leapfrogged rivals Liverpool with a narrow 1-0 win over Burnley.

    Yet Man of the Match Paul Pogba insisted that United are staying grounded.

    He told Sky Sports: "The game today was very hard.

    "We know it's not easy to play here, but we got the three points and we’re very happy.

    "There’s still a long way to go so we have to focus again, and until the end of the season."

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer added: "When you get three points in the Premier League it makes you smile. It was a hard fought three points though. It always is up here.

    "Liverpool have had an unbelievable three-and-a-half seasons, but we couldn’t have asked for a better time to play them.

    "We’re in good shape, and we’re hungry."

    Meanwhile, on the transfer front, Borussia Dortmund have been linked with another player designated to ‘replace’ Jadon Sancho.

    United are set to reignite their interest in the winger next summer and the Germans have a plan if the deal comes off.

    Tanguy Coulibaly is said by France Football to be their favoured alternative.

    The 19-year-old winger has broken into Stuttgart’s team and is highly rated in Germany.

    And finally, United are reportedly in talks with Rapid Vienna’s 17-year-old starlet Yusuf Demir as they aim to beat Real Madrid to his signature.

    The teenage midfielder has burst into the Austrian side’s first team, scoring four goals and bagging two assists in 17 senior appearances this term – attracting the attention of Europe’s big boys.

    And United are believed to be the club most interested with Los Blancos also in the frame, according to Defensa Central.

    The report states United are yet to make a formal offer but have started negotiations with the player’s representatives.

    FT: BURNLEY 0-1 MAN UTD

    United go three points clear at the top of the Premier League thanks to Paul Pogba's second half strike.

  • Joe Brophy

    BURNLEY 0-1 MAN UTD

    Manchester United have the lead!

    Paul Pogba has been the best player on the pitch this evening, and it's no surprise that the Frenchman is the player to break the deadlock.

    Marcus Rashford finds space on the right, and that allows him time to wait, weigh up his options, and then pick out Pogba on the edge of the box with a lofted cross.

    The French midfielder's connection is true, but the strike still needs a slight nick off Matthew Lowton to beat Nick Pope.

    United are heading to the top of the Premier League table tonight!

    CAN'T GO RON

    Rio Ferdinand hopes Amad Diallo can surprise people at Old Trafford – just like Cristiano Ronaldo did.

    He told his YouTube channel: “If you see his clips and speak to some of the people at the club that were involved in buying him, potentially this kid could be an absolute world beater.

    “I think that’s the thoughts of Manchester United people that they’ve unearthed… I’m not going to give him that pressure of Cristiano Ronaldo, but nobody knew about Ronaldo when we bought him really other than people in Portugal.

    “This kid seems quite similar in that sense. if you see his clips and the way people talk about him then I think the world is his oyster if he applies himself right.”

    BURNLEY 0-0 MAN UTD HT

    Harry Maguire had thought he had opened the scoring with a towering header but it was disallowed!

    The United captain met Bruno Fernandes' free-kick at the far post to head back past Pope and Mee on the line – but Kevin Friend immediately blew his whistle to signal a foul.

    Maguire was deemed to have pushed Pieters in the back

    KOUL INTENTIONS

    Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis has warned Manchester United they must offer at least £100million if they want to sign Kalidou Koulibaly this month.

    Speaking on talkSPORT, White revealed: “There isn’t a window in the last two, three or four that we don’t see big mentions of the Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

    “This morning, I spoke to Aurelio De Laurentiis, the Napoli owner, and said what about your player, are there bids in for him?

    “He laughed it off saying he’s not for sale.

    “It seems on this occasion Koulibaly is going nowhere.

    "He stays and that was as recent as this morning.

    "Anyone going in with anything other than £100million for Koulibaly can forget it.

    "He’s absolutely not for sale unless one of the big clubs in England come up with £100million."

    THREE-YEARS LIONS

    The FA now wants England to WIN a major tournament by 2024.

    Nearly a decade after former Wembley chairman Greg Dyke set the 2022 World Cup as the prime target for the Three Lions, the latest official aims of the governing body show a slippage in that timeframe.

    Instead, the FA believes England should be seeking to win a major tournament, by either the men’s or women’s teams, over the next THREE seasons.

    That period includes two European Championships and a World Cup for the men’s team, and the delayed Euros and 2023 World Cup for the Lionesses.

    PAUL ALL OVER

    Manchester United will struggle against Burnley if they do not listen to Paul Pogba.

    Liverpool legend Steve Nicol told ESPN: "Absolutely, yeah there's a chance [United] don't win this game.

    "Listen, Burnley don't give points away. I think they lost a few to City and they lost a few to Chelsea, but every other game they've had – the losses and the wins – have been 1-0, and of course they've had some draws that have all been 1-1.

    "So they don't generally give an awful lot away so yes [they have a chance].

    "We were talking last week about a statement Pogba made about how Manchester United need to be better on set pieces, well I'll tell you what, if there's one team you don't want to be giving set pieces away to is Burnley.

    "So yeah, Man United absolutely are favourites but this is no foregone conclusion."
