Blackburn boss Mark Hughes believes his side are capable of 'causing Manchester United problems' at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Rovers have made an impressive start to this season and currently sit sixth in the Premier League after losing only once this term.

"We're on the back of a great run of form and results are going for us," Hughes told Sky Sports News.

"We are playing with a lot of confidence and the players are enjoying the situation they find themselves in and they are looking forward to games.

"Obviously it will be another big test going up against United at Old Trafford, they are an exceptional side this year.

"They seem to have a real desire to retain the Premier League and defensively they are rock solid.

"They are going to be very difficult to overcome, but confidence is high from our point of view.

"You have to have confidence in your ability if you are going to cause United problems when you play them at Old Trafford, and we certainly believe we can do that."
