A scan of the Manchester United team sheet ahead of kick-off at Turf Moor showed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had picked a team to deal with a very unique threat.

Physicality was evidently the order of the day against Sean Dyche's side, with Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba picked in midfield ahead of Scott McTominay and Fred, while Edinson Cavani was back in attack.

It was a horses for courses selection from Solskjaer but again it displayed the depth available to the United manager and what could be a crucial asset in the title race, because this side are now most definitely in contention for a 21st league title.

Solskjaer said pre-match Eric Bally was desperate to play but he was probably the better option than Victor Lindelof and this wasn't a night for testing out Axel Tuanzebe.

Twelve months later it will be a very different game, which speaks volumes for United's improvement.

Thankfully there's one trip a season to Turf Moor.

The last time United were beaten away from home domestically was against Jurgen Klopp's side on a day when the home fans began their title celebrations after Mo Salah's late goals.
