London - English Premiership strugglers, Burnley, will be out to get a result when they travel to face Manchester United on Wednesday.

Burnley have won just once away from home all season and, after letting slip a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at home to West Bromwich Albion last Sunday, have tasted victory only once in their last eight league games.

But Sean Dyche's side are renowned fighters, coming back from 2-0 down to draw at Manchester City over Christmas.

And after holding United to a 0-0 draw at Turf Moor earlier in the season, midfielder David Jones, who started his career at Old Trafford, believes they can again cause van Gaal's side problems.

"We are looking to get something from the game and it's a big one for us," Jones said.

"Personally, I've been back to Old Trafford a few times with my previous clubs and it's always good to go back to a ground such as that and see people.

"But beyond that, I just want to get on with it and go and put in a performance for Burnley.

"We'll be determined to get something there and we know that if we get everyone performing well, we're a match for anyone."

Dyche may be forced to change his starting line-up for the first time in 11 league games with key midfielder Dean Marney a major doubt with a knee injury.
