Manchester United fans will be demanding both a good performance and all three points when they watch their side face an impressive Burnley side on Boxing Day afternoon.
Man United failed to react positivvely from their stoppage time defeat to Championship club Bristol City in the Carabao Cup quarter-final by conceding a 94th Harry Maguire equaliser on Saturday as Leicester bounced back to claim a 2-2 draw at the King Power Stadium.
Two points dropped meant Mourinho’s side now trail leaders Man City by 13 points and a number of United players have faced some huge criticism for their performances in recent games.
In reaction, Mourinho has decided to stick with Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford in attack but has decided to hand Zlatan Ibrahimovic his Premier League start of the season.
Juan Mata’s brace v Leicester is enough for him to keep his starting place while Paul Pogba is handed the captain’s armband.
Here’s how Man United fans reacted to the team news…
