Fernandes and Telles start, Paul Pogba misses out: Manchester United Predicted XI vs Burnley

Manchester United are back in action this evening, as they travel to take on Burnley in their first Premier League game since the 2-1 victory over Aston Villa.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side beat Watford 1-0 in the FA Cup on Saturday night, but it’s back to the top flight action today as the club legend chases a league title.

What's YOUR PREDICTION for Manchester United vs Burnley?

Man Utd win!

Solskjaer rang several changes for the home game against the Hornets, meaning some key players should be fully fit and firing on all cylinders.

With that in mind, here is Football Fancast’s prediction for this evening’s starting line-up, which sees Solskjaer make eight changes to the team that edged past Watford at Old Trafford.


Solskjaer faces some tough decisions as he looks for a big reaction from their workmanlike performance against Watford.

The Red Devils have some injury issues though so his side mostly picks itself for this one.

Eric Bailly joined Paul Pogba on the treatment table whilst Luke Shaw is also struggling.

It means Alex Telles is likely to keep his place in a back four consisting of him, Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Aaron Wan-Bissaka in front of veteran goalkeeper David de Gea.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thinking

Who did Manchester United face in their first game of 2020?

Telles has been in such fine form in recent weeks and made an impact almost immediately against Watford in only his eleventh start of the season.

Fred and Scott McTominay will resume their burgeoning partnership in the midfield, with Bruno Fernandes joining them in the engine room.

Asking Pogba to play again may be a bit of a stretch too far, so switching Mason Greenwood back to the right and bringing Marcus Rashford in on the left could prove to be a tempting option, with Anthony Martial likely to lead the line.
