Jesse Lingard of Manchester United

Manchester United would love to continue their incredible winning streak under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as we play a struggling Burnley in midweek.

The Red Devils saw off Arsenal 3-1 in the FA Cup at the Emirates Stadium and we return home to face the Clarets. Alexis Sanchez started in the win over his former club and scored while we saw goals from Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial for the Red Devils.

Chris Smalling could be close to a return for the side, but the Englishman should be a part of the bench and not be risked for this clash.

The Red Devils have the chance of ending this game week with the same number of points as Chelsea, who lie fourth on the table, and here is the predicted line-up for the home side.

Predicted Manchester United XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

David de Gea (GK)

The Spaniard was rested for the FA Cup clash but should return to the starting XI against Burnley.

Diogo Dalot (RB)

Ashley Young could do with a break after his FA Cup exploits. Dalot has impressed in certain outings this season and should get the nod for this tie.

Phil Jones Manchester United
Phil Jones

Phil Jones (CB)

Eric Bailly was played in the win over the Gunners, but we should see Jones return to the starting XI while Smalling looks to regain match fitness.

Victor Lindelof (CB)

The best central defender we have had this season. Lindelof cannot be dropped and should start for United on Tuesday.

Luke Shaw (LB)

The Englishman is another player who cannot be dropped, and his runs down the left will be important in breaking the Burnley defence.

Nemanja Matic (CDM)

Matic provides us with additional protection from the midfield, and with Marouane Fellaini still out, the Serb should start on Tuesday.

Fred (CM)

Solskjaer might be tempted to shuffle his pack a bit, and Ander Herrera could be replaced by Fred against the Clarets.

Paul Pogba (CM)

Pogba is unstoppable and undroppable at the moment. The Frenchman has grown from strength to strength under Solskjaer and should keep his place in the starting XI.

Anthony Martial (LW)

The Frenchman came off the bench against Arsenal to restore our two-goal advantage. Martial should be played on the left.

Marcus Rashford (ST)

Rashford was on the bench for the game against Arsenal, however, the Englishman should start for United in place of Romelu Lukaku.

Jesse Lingard (RW)

Lingard was excellent in the 3-1 win over Arsenal, even breaking out a bit of a moonwalk after his goal. The Englishman should keep his place in the XI to face the Clarets.
