BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has got Manchester United playing with more 'freedom' as his Clarets side bid to become the first team to take points off the Norwegian's side.

United have reeled off eight straight wins since Solksjaer took charge and Burnley visit Old Trafford 16th in the table, three points clear of the Premier League's bottom three.

Dyche, whose side have drawn on their last two visits to Old Trafford, believes Solskjaer has induced more of a spark from the United players.

"From the outside looking in it seems like he has tried to loosen it a little bit and put a bit more freedom on it and a bit more energy seems to have back into the players. That is a skill in itself," said the Clarets chief.

"Maybe he has not changed too much, just changed the simple things and I think possibly that is what he has done in his own way.

"The players have responded and they are delivering good performances. There seems a little bit more spark."
