That's all for today, goodbye!
That win means that United move to fifth in the table, now just one point off Chelsea who don't play until tomorrow. Next up for Solskjaer's team is a trip to Arsenal on Wednesday. Burnley drop to 13th and Dyche will be hoping that his side can get back to winning ways when they face Aston Villa next time out.
Rashford scores a late goal to seal a 2-0 win for United over Burnley. They took the lead just before half-time when a mistake by Taylor gifted the ball to Pereira and he set up Martial to open the scoring. Burnley improved in the second half and Bardsley did have a volley saved by De Gea. Rashford then scored with the final kick of the game when United set off on a quick counter-attack that saw him put the ball into the back of the empty net.
D. James
90' + 5' It's clever play by James as he gets ahead of Taylor and crosses it early to Rashford, who is onside, to set up the goal.
M. Rashford
90' + 5' RASHFORD SEALS THE WIN! James picks him out with the cross and Rashford is unmarked as he makes the run into the box. He's one-on-one with Pope and goes around the keeper before poking the ball past him and into the back of the net. 2-0 United!
J. Lingard
Yellow Card
90' + 4' Lingard is booked after he catches Pope with a late challenge. 
Yellow Card
90' + 4' Fred is booked for time-wasting.
90' + 4' Pope comes up for a Burnley corner, but United just about clear the initial ball into the box. The danger isn't gone though as McNeil swings another cross into the box and the Burnley players are claiming it hit a hand on the way through but the referee waves the claims away.
B. Williams
Yellow Card
90' + 2' Williams was expecting Bardsley to make contact as the right-back closed him down, but he didn't, so Williams is booked for diving.
90' + 1' United win the ball back on the halfway line and Shaw makes a driving run forward to get to the edge of the box. He tries to square his cross into the middle to pick out Rashford, but it's blocked by Bardsley.
D. McNeil
Yellow Card
89' McNeil is shown a yellow card for dissent for his reaction after he loses control of the ball and then catches Williams as he tries to win it back.
L. Shaw
A. Martial
89' It's a defensive change from Solskjaer now as the goalscorer, Martial, comes off to be replaced by Shaw.
R. Brady
J. Cork
86' Final roll of dice from Dyche now and it's Cork that's making way as Brady comes on.
86' Rashford was caught in the face by Tarkowski's trailing hand as they both went to head the ball and the medical team are on the field to give him some treatment. He's back to his feet quickly though and he'll be able to carry on.
84' United break quickly on the counter-attack and they have a man advantage in the attack. Lingard lays it off to Martial on the left of the box, but he decides to take a touch instead of hitting it first time which gives Burnley time to regain their shape as Pope closes down the angle.
82' Burnley win a free-kick in their own half and Pope tries the long ball over the top. Cork heads it on, but Rodriguez can't bring it down on the edge of the box as Maguire gets there just ahead of him.
80' It's another long ball over the top from Tarkowski to try and pick out Wood's run into the box. He overhits it this time though and it runs straight through to De Gea who clears his lines.
78' Burnley are keeping the ball well in United's half as they continue to press for an equaliser. Their passes into the final third are letting them down at the moment though as Young gets across to intercept Bardsley's cross.
76' CLOSE! It's Gudmundsson that steps up to take the free-kick and he curls his effort over the wall. He's going for the top-right corner, but his shot is just over the top of the crossbar on its way over.
75' It's patient build-up from Burnley and they work it well up the field. Westwood picks out Cork just outside the box with a good throughball and he wins a free-kick after being caught late by Lindelof.
J. Lingard
Andreas Pereira
73' United are making a change now, but it's not James that's coming off. Pereira is the one making way as Lingard comes onto the field.
72' James stays down after that challenge and he's receiving treatment for it now. He eventually gets back to his feet, but it's unclear if he will be able to carry on at the moment. 
C. Taylor
Yellow Card
71' Taylor is running to get on the loose ball, but James just beats him to it and the defender ends up kicking him in the leg. He's shown a yellow card.
69' GREAT SAVE! United don't clear their lines properly and the ball falls to Bardsley on the edge of the box. He hits the shot on the volley and it's going towards the far bottom corner, but De Gea gets down well to push it out for a corner.
J. Guðmunds­son
A. Barnes
68' The second change for Burnley sees Barnes making way for Gudmundsson.
67' There was a collision between Bardsley and Martial on the edge of the box that causes the United players to ask for a penalty, but there wasn't much in it. Bardsley came off worse and is receiving treatment, but he's quickly back to his feet and will be able to carry on.
65' A corner is played out to James, but his shot is blocked by Mee on the edge of the box. The rebound falls to Matic and he drills his shot towards goal. It hits Martial on the way through though and rolls wide.
63' Burnley are trying to go for the direct route to goal as Bardsley lifts a long pass over the top of United's defence into Barnes. He brings it down well with his first touch before hitting his shot on target, but the flag goes up for offside.
B. Mee
Yellow Card
61' Mee receives a yellow card after he catches James with his studs high on his shin.
J. Rodriguez
J. Hendrick
59' Dyche makes his first change of the game and he's bringing on Rodriguez to replace Hendrick.
57' Maguire doesn't clear his lines properly and heads the ball to Hendrick, who isn't picked up as he drifts inside from the right. He takes the shot first time, but it's a wild effort that flies high over the crossbar.
55' GOOD SAVE! Martial gets away from Mee on the edge of the box and cuts inside to drill his shot toward goal. It's a good effort from him but Pope stays standing and turns it away with his foot.
54' Martial has been involved in 10 goals in his 13 Premier League starts this season (seven goals, three assists).
52' Burnley just can't keep hold of the ball long enough to get out of their own half at the moment. Mee picks out Cork on the halfway line, but a heavy touch off him gives the ball straight to Fred.
50' It was a great run down the right by James and he squares his cross to Martial in the middle after getting past Taylor. The Frenchman pushes Tarkowski off the ball, turns with it and fires it into the roof of the net. It won't count though as he fouled Tarkowski and Burnley have a free-kick.
48' It's a long pass forward from De Gea to pick out Williams on the left and he then squares it to Rashford. The forward runs at Bardsley and tries to squeeze a cross into the box from the byline, but it's blocked by the right-back.
46' Burnley get us back underway for the second half!
Dyche will be expecting more from his players in the second half if they want to get back into the game. They had just one shot in the first half, which Barnes sliced wide, but haven't created any other chances. As for Solskjaer, he'll be pleased with how his side played, but he'll be expecting them to keep up the pressure after the break to try and add to their lead.
United take a 1-0 lead over Burnley into half-time. The away side have dominated possession in the first half and Martial did have an effort cleared off the line by Bardsley before breaking the deadlock. It was a mistake from Taylor that gave United the ball and Pereira curled a brilliant cross into Martial, who then lifted his shot over Pope and into the bottom corner just before the break.
45' + 3' Bardsley switches play out to McNeil with a wonderful cross and he puts the ball into the box with his first touch. The United defenders can't get near it, but none of the Burnley players have made a run to the far post to get on the end of it.
45' + 1' United are looking to their right side to make something happen whenever they go forward. James tries to play a one-two with Pereira to get into more space, but Taylor intercepts the return pass and gets it clear.
Andreas Pereira
44' Taylor takes too long to clear his lines and a heavy touch gifts the ball to Pereira on the right. He curls his pass in front of the left-back to pick out Martial in the box. 
A. Martial
44' MARTIAL SCORES! It's a great pass into Pereira from James and neither of the Burnley central defenders pick up the Frenchman's run into the box. He has time to take a touch and lift his effort over Pope and into the back of the net. 1-0 United!
42' Tarkowski plays a long ball over the top as soon as he receives the throw-in and he picks out Barnes on the right of the box. Williams is closing him down, but he still manages to get a shot away. He slices it though and it curls wide of the near post.
40' Pope is back on his feet and he's going to try and carry on after getting his treatment. Hart is still warming up for Burnley just in case though.
38' Pope has gone down on his line and he's getting some treatment for what looks like an ankle injury after he landed awkwardly on it when he tried to change direction to follow United's cross. Hart is getting ready to come on, so it doesn't look like Pope will be able to carry on.
36' Burnley have had just one shot on target in their last 3.5 hours of Premier League football, and are yet to have an attempt in this game.
34' OFF THE LINE! James tries to square a cross into the six-yard box but a deflection off Tarkowski gives it straight to Martial instead. He takes a touch before hitting his shot towards goal and Bardsley gets back to block his shot on the line. 
33' Burnley have all of their players sitting deep in their own half at the moment as they try to close down the space ahead of United and stop them from getting into the final third.
31' Pereira is given a lot of space on the right and he tries to square it into Rashford in the middle of the box. It's cut out by Mee though and Burnley have the chance to clear their lines.
29' Rashford takes the free-kick, but it's a long way out. It looks like he's trying to curl it into the top corner, but a big deflection off the wall takes it high over the crossbar and into the stands.
27' The Burnley fans are starting to get frustrated with the referee now as he points for another free-kick for United, but it did look like Mee caught Rashford with a trailing arm.
25' It's slow build-up from United now as their defenders keep hold of it on the halfway line due to Burnley closing down the space in midfield. Maguire tries to play a throughball to Pereira, but it's cut out by Cork.
P. Bardsley
Yellow Card
23' Bardsley picks up the first yellow card of the game after he catches Williams with a late challenge. 
21' It's a deep corner swung into the box from McNeil and he's looking for Tarkowski at the far post. He's leaning back to make contact with it and he can't direct his header back towards the target.
19' OFF THE POST! Cork almost gets on the end of Wood's nod down in the box but misses the ball and De Gea sets United off on the counter-attack. Pereira cuts the ball back to Rashford on the edge of the area and he curls his effort around Mee and off the outside of the right post.
17' The free-kick is just outside the box on the left and it's a tight angle for a shot, but Fred does go for goal. He gets his effort over the wall, but there's not dip on the shot as it sails over the crossbar.
15' Lindelof plays a good pass into James on the right and he gets the better of Taylor as he makes a run towards the box. The left-back tries to win the ball but ends up taking down James and United have another free-kick.
13' GOOD SAVE! It's Rashford that's standing over the free-kick just outside the box and it goes through the wall and is swerving towards the bottom right corner. Pope gets down well and pushes it away with both hands. 
12' It's a driving run through midfield from Rashford as he gets away from three Burnley players to get to the edge of the box. He pulls it back to Fred who has more space and he wins a free-kick after Tarkowski catches him late.
10' United are keeping the ball well at the moment, but they're struggling to get into the final third. Maguire tries to pick out Martial with a long ball over the top, but he overhits it and it rolls out of play for a throw-in.
8' Taylor does brilliantly to get away from Fred and Young down the left wing and curls a good cross into the middle of the box. He's looking for Barnes at the far post, but Williams just does enough to take it away from him.
6' Young lands heavily on his back after him and Barnes both get up to try and head the ball. The medical team are with him now, but it looks like he's going to able to carry on.
4' Williams plays a good throughball into the box and Pereira is the one chasing it down. Pope is quickly off his line and closing him down and makes the angle impossibly tight for him to squeeze a cross into the middle.
2' Maguire knocks Barnes down near the halfway line and Tarkowski puts a good ball into the box. It's nodded down by Wood on the edge of the box to try and pick out Barnes on the other side, but Williams gets across to clear it. 
1' Pereira gets the game underway for United!
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away.
Burnley haven't lost their last game in a calendar year since 2012 (1-0 v Leicester City in the Championship), winning three and drawing three since. Meanwhile, United haven't lost their last game of the year since 2011 (3-2 v Blackburn Rovers), winning four and drawing three since then.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes four changes to his team after their win over Newcastle United last time out, with Young, Williams, Matic and James all starting. Shaw, Wan-Bissaka and Greenwood start on the bench, while Scott McTominay misses out through injury. There is also no place for Paul Pogba in the squad as Solskjaer is resting him after his return from injury.
Sean Dyche makes just two changes to the side that lost to Everton on Thursday as he brings both Hendrick and Barnes into the starting line-up. Brady and Rodriguez drop down to the bench.
MANCHESTER UNITED SUBS: Sergio Romero, Mason Greenwood, Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Luke Shaw, Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
MANCHESTER UNITED STARTING XI (4-2-3-1): David de Gea; Ashley Young, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Brandon Williams; Fred, Nemanja Matic; Daniel James, Andreas Pereira, Marcus Rashford; Anthony Martial.
BURNLEY SUBS: Joe Hart, Danny Drinkwater, Kevin Long, Robbie Brady, Matthew Lowton, Jay Rodriguez, Johann Gudmundsson.
BURNLEY STARTING XI (4-4-2): Nick Pope; Phil Bardsley, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee, Charlie Taylor; Jeff Hendrick, Ashley Westwood, Jack Cork, Dwight McNeil; Chris Wood, Ashley Barnes.
United are looking to try and close the gap to the top four with a win in their final game of 2019 and have lost just one of their last eight matches in all competitions (W5 D2), though that defeat did come in their last away game against Watford (2-0). Burnley, on the other hand, have lost three of their last five matches (W2), including their last outing against Everton when they lost 1-0.
