After the Tottenham diaster where Jose Mourinho suffered 3-Nill loss which was the worst home defeat for the special one, Manchester United will be travelling to Turf Moor to face Sean Dyche’s Burnley

This trip to Burnley is really important and a must-win fixture for both Manchester United and Jose Mourinho to stay in the title race for the Premier League. With just 3 points from the first three games, this game against Burnley would a tricky fixture for Jose Mourniho’s Manchester United.

With Manchester United suffering on one end Burnley are also in a similar situation. Burnley had a floundering start to the season with just one point in the first three games, drawing against Southampton before losing to Watford and Fulham.

This was buzzing with the awkward press conferences of Jose Mourinho, he walked out of the post-match press conference by shouting “Respect!” and in the pre-match conference for the game against Burnley he told the reporters that he remains as “one of the greatest managers in the world”.

“I am the manager of one of the greatest clubs in the world but I’m also one of the greatest managers in the world,” said Mourinho.


Jose Mourinho has accepted that he doesn’t know his back four yet till now. It looks like he would experiment again with a new combination in the game against Burnley. With an injury to Phil Jones last week it looks like Marcos Rojo who seems to be fit enough to make his return from injury


The midfield trio of Matic, Pogba and Fred would be making into the starting the eleven. Pogba who had a brilliant outing against Leicester City has failed to put forth similar performances against Brighton and Tottenham.


As always Romelu Lukaku would be leading the line for manchester united with Juan Mata and Alexis Sanchez on the wings. For United to do well in the premier league the likes Lukaku and Sanchez have to step up and take the responsibility

Probable XI (4-3-3)

De Gea

Valencia – Smalling – Rojo – Shaw

Pogba – Matic – Fred

Mata – Lukaku – Sanchez
