4-3-3: Mourinho To Make 2 Key Changes | Expected Man Utd Line-Up vs Burnley
Manchester United take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon. Here is the line-up I think Jose Mourinho will go with:
Manchester United will be desperate to get their season back on track following consecutive defeats when they take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon. Here is the line-up I think Jose Mourinho will go with:
Goalkeeper: David De Gea will be disappointed to have conceded seven goals in his opening three games but the Spanish international is certain to keep his place between the sticks. Sergio Romero is close to making his return from a knee injury but Lee Grant should continue on the bench tomorrow.
Defence: United’s defence was poor in the second half against Tottenham and the shock experiment of playing Ander Herrera in a back three must surely be ditched against Burnley.
I expect Mourinho to revert to a flat back four with Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly pushing for recalls in the middle of defence. Chris Smalling and Phil Jones could make way after mistakes against Spurs.
Antonio Valencia and Luke Shaw could keep their places in the full-back positions meaning Ashley Young may have to make do with a place among the substitutes once again.
Midfield: Nemanja Matic made his comeback last week after recovering from an abdominal injury so the Serbian international should keep his place in the middle of the park tomorrow afternoon.
Fred was disappointing against Spurs but I still think the Brazilian star will keep his place in midfield tomorrow with Herrera dropping out to join Marouane Fellaini on the bench. Paul Pogba is expected to retain his place in what could be a three-man midfield against Burnley.
Attack: Alexis Sanchez was named on the bench against Tottenham but I think the Chilean international could be recalled to the starting eleven tomorrow as United need a ‘spark’ in attack.
Jesse Lingard was one of the few positives from the Spurs game so I expect he’ll keep his place ahead of the likes of Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford at Turf Moor.
Romelu Lukaku missed a golden chance to give United the lead at 0-0 against Spurs and it was a pivotal moment in the game but the Belgian international should still keep his place up front.
