Manchester United Team News & Preview
Manchester United host Burnley in the Premier League this weekend and José Mourinho will be looking to get back to winning ways after having failed to win five of United’s last six league games.
The Old Trafford outfit picked up a morale-boosting 1-0 win over bitter rivals Manchester City in the EFL Cup and will fancy their chances against a struggling Burnley side.
In terms of sheer quality, United should be able to win with ease. However, they have been very inconsistent lately and will need to improve.
José Mourinho will be without the services of Eric Bailly, Wayne Rooney and Phil Jones for this game. Marouane Fellaini is a doubt and will be assessed closer to kick-off. Bailly’s absence will be a major blow for the home side. The former Villarreal defender has established himself as a key player at Old Trafford in a short space of time.
Predicted Manchester United Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Blind, Shaw; Pogba, Herrera; Martial, Mata, Rashford; Ibrahimovic
