Manchester United travel to Burnley in the English Premier League today knowing that a victory is a must if they’re to keep up their bid to finish in the top four this season.
With Manchester City also finally showing a bit of fragility last week, the Red Devils must ensure they continue to win in case their city rivals contrive to drop points at home to Newcastle later this afternoon.
Jose Mourinho has named his starting eleven for the match at Turf Moor with a largely predictable line-up, perhaps with one exception.

Defender Luke Shaw has surprisingly featured heavily for United in their last four Premier League matches after an extended spell on the fringes of Mourinho’s starting eleven, impressing supporters with his performances.
Mourinho himself was full of praise for the left-back this week, a big u-turn on his previous public statements about the player.
Today though he’s opted for Ashley Young and supporters aren’t happy, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on Shaw’s exclusion…
