Manchester United will entertain Burnley at Old Trafford on Wednesday night hoping to bounce back in the Premier League and claim maximum points in front of their home supporters. The Red Devils will come into this contest on the back of a 2-0 loss at the hands of the Premier League leaders Liverpool last weekend.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hope to see a positive response from his players and will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation in midweek.

4-2-3-1 Manchester United Predicted Lineup Vs Burnley


David De Gea will continue to feature as Man United’s first-choice keeper after making some crucial stops to keep the scoreline respectable versus the champions of Europe on Sunday. Victor Lindelof will continue to play alongside Harry Maguire at the centre of the Red Devils backline.

Brandon Williams will retain his place in the left-back position while Aaron Wan-Bissaka will fill in on the other side as the right-back. Both full-backs need to be more adventurous at home if they are to ensure a win versus the Clarets in midweek.

Luke Shaw could be rested in this game after he got a start against the Reds at the weekend.


Nemanja Matic and Fred will operate as the holding midfielders as they focus on providing adequate cover for the backline. The midfield duo will also be instructed to be more inventive with their passes to the front players.

The talented trio of Daniel James, Juan Mata and Mason Greenwood are expected to play just ahead of them as part of Solskjaer’s attack. Mata managed to score and make the difference versus Wolves in the FA Cup last week so the Spanish playmaker will be in good spirits heading into this clash versus Sean Dyche’s men.

Both Andreas Pereira and Jesse Lingard will be available for selection on the bench. They might get a chance to come on and make an impact if Solskjaer decides to call upon their services.


Anthony Martial will spearhead the Man United attack up top. He missed a glorious chance to equalise versus Liverpool, so this match versus Burnley could be a perfect opportunity for him to make amends by putting in a match-winning display on Wednesday.
