According to Manchester Evening News, Manchester United will host Burnley in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Carrington later today.

It will be the second time United have faced Premier League opposition in a friendly match this month, having defeated Everton at their training ground a week ago.

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag wants to use the friendly against Burnley to build match fitness, with a number of fringe players set to feature.

Anthony Martial and summer signing Rasmus Hojlund could feature in the friendly against Burnley to build their match fitness.

Hojlund is yet to make his Manchester United debut, as he continues his rehabilitation from a minor back injury.
