The English Premier League returns today with three matches after a two weeks break to facilitate the playing of the FA Cup.

Manchester United will head to Burnley today knowing that a point against the Clarets would move them above Liverpool to the top of the Premier League table.

United are currently second in the division, level on 33 points with the reigning champions, while Burnley occupy 16th, having picked up 16 points from their 15 matches.

Burnley will enter today’s contest in good form, having won three of their last four matches in all competitions, including a 1-0 victory over Sheffield United in their last league game on December 29.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United will lock horns with Sheffield United at Bramall Lane looking to return to winning ways.

The Magpies suffered a disappointing 2-0 loss versus Arsenal in the FA Cup last Saturday, so they will be desperate to put on a much-improved performance against the Blades.

And Wolverhampton Wanderers will look for their first win in five Premier League games against Everton.

The Toffees visit Molineux having seen their run of four successive league wins ended by West Ham on New Year’s Day.

Wolves go into the game buoyed by Friday’s FA Cup victory over Crystal Palace.
