Predicted Man Utd XI against Burnley as Erik ten Hag makes popular decision

Burnley’s visit to M16 is expected to produce another victory, but Ten Hag continues to contend with several high-profile injury problems. Express Sport runs through the Dutchman’s likely team.

Goalkeeper – Onana
Andre Onana offered Sheffield United some unlikely hope with his midweek howler. He has gone seven games without a clean sheet.

Defence – Wan-Bissaka, Casemiro, Maguire, Dalot
Ten Hag is still without seven defenders, including every senior centre-back except Harry Maguire and both his left-backs. So Casemiro will have to cover alongside Maguire at the heart of the back line, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot operating on either side.

Lisandro Martinez and Luke Shaw are set to return to team training next week, while Ten Hag also expected Raphael Varane to feature again before the season concludes. Striker Ethan Wheatley became the 250th academy graduate in United’s history on Wednesday.

Louis Jackson and Harry Amass are bound to join him on the bench again; either of them could be in line to become 251. Midfield – Mainoo, Eriksen, Fernandes
Ten Hag has confirmed that Mason Mount will return to the squad this weekend after missing the last two games through a fresh injury.

The United boss will have been happy with his side’s dominance on the ball against Sheffield United, so Mount should join Scott McTominay and Sofyan Amrabat on the bench. Christian Eriksen brought much-needed control last time out.

The experienced Dane should partner Kobbie Mainoo and Bruno Fernandes again, but McTominay may be in line to start if he’s back to full fitness. Our community members are treated to special offers, promotions, and adverts from us and our partners.
