Man United’s Official Starting Eleven vs Burnley

EARLY TEAM NEWS

Chris Smalling could return after seven weeks on the sidelines. The defender has not featured since December 8 due to a foot issue, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is considering him after training over the past week.

Marcos Rojo and Marouane Fellaini remain sidelined, while David De Gea will return in goal after being rested for the FA Cup win at Arsenal.

Robbie Brady is a major doubt for Burnley. The Republic of Ireland international picked up a groin injury in the Clarets’ FA Cup thumping at Manchester City and is unlikely to be passed fit.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson could return after three weeks out with a thigh injury, but doubts also remain over Phil Bardsley and Matt Lowton.

OLE, OLE, OLE, OLE

The 45-year-old has made a record-breaking start in charge at Old Trafford, becoming the first boss to begin his United career with eight straight victories.

A ninth straight win could move United into the Champions League places for the first time since the opening weekend of the season, but Solskjaer expects a tough test from Burnley, who have steadied the ship somewhat after a dreadful run of form in the league at the start of the season.
