BUR Vs MUN Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: A closely fought encounter awaits us in the middle today when Burnley and Manchester United battle it out.
Note: We have made changes to our Dream11 team after the lineups were announced.
Across the course of the last three seasons, Burnley have become a side who go about unnoticed, quietly carrying out their job to maintain a respectable position in the points tally. And the 2019-20 edition of the frontier league has been no different, one where the club has stayed steady as ever to sit in a more than befitting 12th spot.
However, they have unravelled a tad bit recently, unravelling to lose three of their previous encounters with the most recent outing seeing them being defeated 1-0 by Everton. It was a calamitous result for the side, a horrid result against an opposition who themselves made an advent into the tie in appalling and abysmal form.
It’s a result they’ll be looking to overhaul come their imminent encounter against Manchester United today, a side who have massively faltered this season. They did manage to pull off a 4-1 thumping of Newcastle United the last time around, a result which took them to 8th place in the points tally, a result they’ll be looking to emulate come today. And they’ll be needing to dwell deep into their repertoire of attacking skill set against a defensively resolute and resolve filled outfit Burnley side.

BUR Vs MUN Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Nick Pope from Burnley will be nailed down in our Dream 11 setup for this imminent encounter. The shot stopper hasn’t been in the finest of form this season, finding it extremely difficult to compensate for the void left by Tom Heaton but he’s someone capable of parrying away a slew of shots to see us make him our pick in this component of our side.
BUR Vs MUN Dream11 Defenders(Wan Bissaka has been dropped from our Dream11 team after the lineups were announced)
One of the most sound, responsible, disciplined and stoutheaded defence in the league, Burnley will be looking to revert to their compactness in defence come this tie as well. This is a side extremely tough to score against, a unit which has flourished immensely owing to their acumen at shunting and shunning away attacking sorties.
It leads us to a duo of picks from the side with the indomitable and diminutive partnership of Charlie Taylor and the ever reliable and dependable CB Ben Mee. Elsewhere, the attackingly inclined and quirky Arron Wan-Bissaka will be an instant pick from Manchester United given his ability to torch down the park and come up with either a goal or assist.
CB Harry Maguire comes in as well to see us opt for an akin partnership from Manchester United as well for the upcoming encounter.
BUR Vs MUN Dream11 Midfielders(Fred and Andreas Pereira have been added to our Dream11 team instead of R Brady after the lineups were announced)
David James didn’t play the last time around for his side but with the player having being accorded rest, it’s likely for him to come back for this one to see us move for the extradonaire player from Manchester United. Elsewhere, Burnley find representation in the form of deadly partnership, a duo which makes for rousing viewing with both Robbie Brady and Dwight McNeil capable of torching down the park and making things jittery for their opposition.
BUR Vs MUN Dream11 Strikers(Anthony Martial has been added to our Dream11 team instead of Mason Greenwood after the lineups were announced)
With 11 goals to his name, Marcus Rashford leads the ranks of goal scorer for Manchester United this season to make the striker an instant pick for this encounter. He scored the last time around as well for the side to see us rope him in as well for the upcoming tie along with Mason Greenwood who got a goal in that outing as well.
Elsewhere, Ashley Barnes will be our singular selection from Burnley for this tie to bring down the curtains on our Dream 11 framework for the day.
