Sean Dyche is not being suckered in by the "noise" surrounding Manchester United ahead of Burnley's trip to Old Trafford.

United go into tomorrow's game buoyed by victory over neighbours Manchester City in the League Cup but still looking to put right last week's 4-0 thrashing by Chelsea in the Premier League.

"For all the noise that's been made about the ups and downs of Manchester United over the past couple of weeks they're still a fine side," he said.

"I look at the manager, the club, the players they've got and they're still a super strong group of people operating at the highest level.

"I'd be very surprised if this group of players is not still a very, very strong group and a group to be reckoned with over the course of the season."

Dyche, who brings up his fourth anniversary as Clarets boss this weekend, added: "Pep (Guardiola) is being spoken about as being on his worst run in, probably, ever. He's still finding out how it works."

Burnley have striker Andre Gray available again following a four-game ban for offensive social media posts.
