Roy Keane: Wayne Rooney on the way out at Manchester United

Roy Keane: Wayne Rooney on the way out at Manchester United

"Our focus is the next game, getting points on the board and seeing the Premier League campaign out".

Keane has another year remaining on his deal at Turf Moor, something Dyche pointed out.

Yet a heroic defensive display, particularly by former Manchester United Academy product Tom Heaton secured a vital point for the Clarets.

"On the day at Old Trafford in October, they were the best side we've played against this season". "The game against united is one we're looking forward to and one where we want to pick some more points up". José Mourinho's side have earned 30 points from 14 games on the road, winning nine and losing just two.

One more draw would equal their club record of 13 in a Premier League season, set in 1998-99.

The former Chelsea and United midfielder also spoke about the Red Devil's chances in the Europa League now that they have reached the last four.

"He is one of the defenders really involved in the season of Burnley - it's not easy to score, it is not easy to create against them".

They are now holding fifth place in the Premier League with 57 points from 31 matches.

The reverse fixture last October ended 0-0, meaning Burnley could go unbeaten home and away against Manchester United in a single season for the first time since 1973-74. Only in four Premier League seasons have they taken more at this stage (1993/94, 2006/07, 2011/12 and 2012/13). With the Swede looking likely to be unavailable, United will be turning to Marcus Rashford to grab the goals after scoring the victor in that Europa League game and netting in his last two Premier League matches.
