[Teams] Burnley vs Man Utd: Confirmed Line-Ups From Turf Moor

[Teams] Burnley vs Man Utd: Confirmed Line-Ups From Turf Moor

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Sean Dyche or José Mourinho? Dyche has done a fabulous job so far with the North West club but with only 5 points separating them and Arsenal - they have every right to aim to break into the European places, no matter how unrealistic they might seem - on paper.

Manchester United, on the other hand, have kicked off 2018 with a bang, winning each of their Premier League fixtures in convincing fashion. This year, however, they trail league-leaders City by 12 points, and will likely target the FA Cup and Champions League for trophies. United's previous trip to Turf Moor ended in a 2-0 victory and they will hope for something similar this time around as well.

The Chilean did not travel with the squad to Burnley today.

Tom Heaton (shoulder) and Robbie Brady (knee) remain long-term absentees. Scott Arfield could return after his hamstring injury.

Manchester United have been getting healthier over the past few weeks.

Jose Mourinho does not have any new injury issues to worry about ahead of this game. Instead, United now have the chance to close the gap on Manchester City to nine points, if only for two hours.




Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: "Alexis Sanchez could have joined Manchester United in time to feature in this game but, even if he hasn't, his impending arrival will lift the rest of the United team". Should he be unavailable, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata should line up as the attacking trio behind Romelu Lukaku.

Ashley Young is back from suspension, though Luke Shaw could retain his place at left-back. The role of Nemanja Matic will again be key, with the Serb tasked with keeping the unsafe duo of Defour and Gudmundsson quiet.

He managed to find Martial, who smashed home for his third in four games. They now sit 12 points behind Manchester City at the very same juncture.

A lot of the criticism aimed at him this season has been his inability to hold the ball up, something which United thrived off with Zlatan Ibrahimovic last season.

United won the game thanks to Anthony Martial's strike on 54 minutes.

On the contrary, United are in impeccable away form, going five unbeaten (4W 1D), in a stretch dating back to early November. On Saturday, some more hard work beckons for the midfielder, if Burnley are to ensure another result to remember this season.
