Matic expects a physical battle against a side which has recorded the second-highest number of long balls this season, after Sheffield United.
“Physically, they are very good," says the Serbian, who has featured in each of United's last seven matches in all competitions and started the recent win at Turf Moor.
“They are a strong team, all big guys, especially on set-pieces where they are very dangerous, and also with long balls and second balls.
“We know all that so we have to be fully focused in every situation and not allow them to have any chances.
“We're focused on scoring some goals and taking three points, that's the most important thing."
