Confirmed Man Utd line-up vs Burnley, Antony starts

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has named his starting line-up for today’s Premier League clash against Burnley at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils ended a four-match winless streak in the top-flight on Wednesday with a 4-2 comeback triumph over Sheffield United.

Bruno Fernandes was the standout performer with two goals and an assist. The fans will be hoping that he can continue his sparkling form.

Ten Hag has named an unchanged starting XI from the previous game. Andre Onana continues in goal behind the same defence.

Casemiro will partner Harry Maguire in the heart of the defence with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot occupying the full-back positions.

Kobbie Mainoo and Christian Eriksen retain their places in the centre of the park. Eriksen struggled for ball control against the Blades, but he has got the nod over Scott McTominay.

The front line remains the same. Fernandes will start from the number 10 role, with Antony and Alejandro Garnacho retaining their starting positions on the wings.

Rasmus Hojlund will lead the attack against the Clarets. The Dane has the position to himself with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial sidelined with injuries.

Confirmed Man Utd line-up (4-2-3-1) vs Burnley: Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Casemiro, Maguire, Dalot; Mainoo, Eriksen; Antony, Fernandes, Garnacho; Hojlund.

United are currently sixth in the standings with 53 points, and have the chance to strengthen their Europa League qualification hopes with a victory over the Clarets.

Ten Hag will be hoping for a convincing win with a clean sheet. The Red Devils have not managed to shut out their opponents in their last seven games in all competitions.
