Burnley vs Manchester United: Preview and Predicted Line-up 

About Football Express UK

Manchester United will go head-to-head against Burnley at Turf Moor on Tuesday night in a crucial Premier League encounter. 

Despite leading the game, Ralf Rangnick’s side had to endure a disappointing defeat against Middlesbrough in penalties. After getting eliminated from the F.A Cup, the Red Devils’ chance of achieving any silverware is looking pretty thin. 

Meanwhile, the Clarets are enduring a difficult season this term as they are currently sitting at the bottom of the table with 13 points in 19 games. 

Sean Dyche’s side will be coming into this fixture with the back of a 10 games winless streak in all competitions. And they will be looking to break their winless streak against a struggling United team in front of their home crowd. 

Burnley lost the game by 3-1 in the reverse fixture against the Old Trafford side and they will be keen on taking revenge for that defeat.

Manchester United have won their last two games in the Premier League before the international break and they will be looking to keep their winning run going on Tuesday night. 

They are currently sitting in fourth with 38 points in 22 games. West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are all in the race for the fourth spot in the Premier League. The top three teams are looking likely to be Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea.

Pope; Roberts, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; McNeil, Westwood, Brownhill, Cornet; Rodriguez, Weghorst

Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly will be in doubt for this encounter after their absence in the F.A Cup tie against Middlesbrough. Jadon Sancho and Bruno Fernandes should be fit enough to start in this game after picking up knocks on Friday.
