Manchester United’s 4-3 defeat to Bayern Munich in midweek puts further pressure on manager Erik ten Hag heading into Saturday’s game against Burnley.
The Red Devils have now lost 3 games in a row, having conceded 10 goals, and ten Hag has said his players have “to look in the mirror” after some very poor defensive displays.
Ten Hag’s men travel to Turf Moor where they haven’t lost in their last 7 visits. They last suffered defeat at the ground all the way back in 2009.
However, Vincent Kompany’s team did go toe-to-toe with Manchester City on the opening day of the season, despite going on to lose the match 3-0, so this will be a test for United.
Manchester United Injury News
There is optimism that Raphael Varane (knock), Mason Mount (hamstring) and Sofyan Amrabat (back) could all be fit to face Burnley. Both Varane and Mount have been sidelined for a month while Amrabat hasn’t made his debut since arriving from Fiorentina.
However, the likes of Aaron Wan-Bissaka (hamstring), Luke Shaw (muscular), Harry Maguire (knock), Kobbie Mainoo, Amad Diallo and Tyrell Malacia (all knee) remain on the treatment table.
Jadon Sancho and Antony are both fit but they are not available for selection currently. It means United could still have eight players sidelined.
Despite United’s poor form, the away side are still odds-on favourites to secure the three points against Burnley, with Betfair making them 3/4 for the win.
A draw is 16/5 with Bet 365, while a victory for the Clarets is currently 18/5 ay Unibet.
