Burnley are seventh in the English Premier League standings with thirty-four points while Manchester United are second in the standings with fifty points. Burnley lost 1-0 to Crystal Palace in their last game while Manchester United defeated Stoke City 3-0 in their previous outing.
Burnley had a great first half of domestic campaign but have struggled in the last few weeks, failing to win any of their last six matches, losing three of those. Although Manchester United are unbeaten in their last six league fixtures, three of those have been draws as well.
Tom Heaton, Robbie Brady, Chris Wood and Stephen Ward are sidelined through injuries for the home side while Scott Arfield is a doubt. The visitors will be without the injured Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the unfit Michael Carrick. Henrikh Mkhitaryan is also unlikely to be available especially with his probable transfer to Arsenal.
Burnley Possible Starting Lineup: Nick Pope, Phil Bardsley, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee, Charlie Taylor, Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Jack Cork, Steven Difour, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, Jeff Hendrick, Ashley Barnes.
Manchester United Possible Starting Lineup: David de Gea, Antonio Valencia, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Ashley Young, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial, Romelu Lukaku.
“The manager has been really good with me and has given me extra confidence. He’s just told me to go out and enjoy the games and that’s what I’ve been doing. I’m just focused on working really hard for the manager and for the team because I want to keep on playing and hopefully more games will come.”
– Luke Shaw, Manchester United.
