Confirmed Man Utd XI vs Burnley – Nemanja Matic and Edinson Cavani start

It’s a big night at Turf Moor with Manchester United hoping to go three points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Who knew that we’d be writing like that in January given how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side start the season. A terrible home record and a defence leaking goals. We’ve fixed one of those problems, but continue to concede avoidable goals.

David de Gea is back between the goalposts after Dean Henderson played United’s last two games in cup competitions.

The back-four is as follows: Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Eric Bailly, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw.

In midfield we’ve got Nemanja Matic starting along with Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba.

And it looks like a front three with Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani.

United really shouldn’t struggle for goals with this line up, although Sean Dyche is likely to set his team up to defend like their lives depend on it.

But this United side must also learn to break down these teams because that is what we’re up against in the Premier League most weeks.

I think having Cavani back is a big boost tonight.
