Man Utd team confirmed: Jose Mourinho makes three changes to starting XI for Burnley clash | Football | Sport


Manchester United travel to Turf Moor seeking to bounce back from successive Premier League defeats to Brighton and Tottenham which have left Jose Mourinho under pressure.

And, as expected, David De Gea retains his place between the sticks with Lee Grant once again on hand to deputise if needed from the bench.

Antonio Valencia starts at right-back for Manchester United, with Luke Shaw providing overlapping width on the opposite flank.

Mourinho’s men have been shaky at centre-back this season and the Portuguese has entrusted Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling with shutting Burnley out today.

Nemanja Matic anchors the United midfield, with Marouane Fellaini to the left of the Serbia international.

Paul Pogba, who Express Sport understand wants to rejoin Juventus, slots in to the right of Matic.

Romelu Lukaku spearheads United’s attack and he will be eager to add to his solitary goal this season, which came at Brighton.

Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard are playing off the hitman and both will be keen to make their mark against Burnley.

Burnley, meanwhile, are looking to secure their first Premier League win of the season.

Sean Dyche goes with Joe Hart ahead of Tom Heaton in goal, with Phil Bardsley, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee and Charlie Taylor in defence.

Jack Cork sits in front of the back four, with Jeff Hendrick and Ashley Westwood either side of the Chelsea academy graduate.

Chris Wood comes in up top, with Aaron Lennon and Dwight McNeil on the wings for Burnley.
