Forecasted Starting XI for Manchester United against Burnley

Forecasted Starting XI for Manchester United against Burnley

Manchester United will face Burnley this weekend in the Premier League; here’s our predicted lineup. 

Manchester United advanced to the FA Cup finals this week before defeating Sheffield United 4–0 at Old Trafford.

Despite these two results, Erik ten Hag remains under intense pressure, and Jason Wilcox will undoubtedly be watching the game on Saturday as he evaluates the manager. 

Ten Hag’s squad continues to be plagued by injuries, particularly in defence, so he’ll have to fit some square pegs into round holes. 

However, after Wednesday’s 4-2 victory, he will be reasonably confident of getting a result here. 

Predicted Manchester United XI versus Burnley

Ten Hag will prioritize performance over anything else in the league right now, as he will be desperate to prove to Ineos that he deserves to keep his spot. 

So we anticipate that it will be a strong team with little rotation. 


We wouldn’t expect to see rotation at the first position, given that it has only happened once this season. Andre Onana will start in goal again. 


Diogo Dalot is expected to start on the left and Aaron Wan-Bissaka on the right in defence. This pairing performed well on Wednesday, and Wan-Bissaka is far more comfortable on the right. 


Harry Maguire and Casemiro will start at centre-back, with no other options given the current injury crisis. 


In midfield, the only question is who to pair with Kobbie Mainoo. Following Christian Eriksen’s poor performance midweek, we believe Scott McTominay should start. 

Then there’s little doubt that Bruno Fernandes, who scored three goals on Wednesday, will be ahead of these two. 


After Antony squandered his chance last time out, Amad Diallo will almost certainly start on the right side. Then on the left, Alejandro Garnacho, as Marcus Rashford’s situation is unclear. 


Rasmus Hojlund, who has ended his goalless streak, will lead the line as the striker. He’ll now try to start a scoring streak like he did last time.
