Cape Town - Burnley manager Sean Dyche feels Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given Manchester United's players more energy after the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

Dyche will take his team to Old Trafford on Tuesday to face a rampant United side that has won eight games out of eight in all competitions under Solskjaer.

With an already daunting task on their hands, Dyche believes the Norwegian has not made massive tactical changes but just gave the team a "little bit more spark" since he took over from Mourinho.

Dyche said: "It seems from the outside looking in, it seems like he has just tried to loosen it a little bit and put more freedom on it.

"A bit more energy seems to have come back to the players. I think that's a skill in itself. I think possibly that is what he has done; he has just given a different feel to the group in his own way.

"But I think they have responded, and they are delivering good performances. It seems there is a little bit more spark, not massive tactical changes, but just that spark within the group."

Burnley have not lost in their last four league matches but are still 16th in the Premier League table going into the game with United.
