BUR Vs MUN Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Manchester United approach today’s encounter knowing a win takes them into top spot in the league.
Slumped in the relegation zone back in December, Burnley have overhauled their horrid form across the course of the last month. With three wins in their last five matches, the side has climbed into 16th position, a solid 5 points above the drop.
Although the team is far from its best, the side is gradually rediscovering its fight and character. With the club’s gritty and plucky defensive setup reverting to its usual mannerisms, the side is capable of challenging the best in the league currently.
With wind in their wings, Burnley will take on high flying Manchester United in a bid to curtail the second placed side’s unbeaten run.

Top Goal Scorer
- Wood: 3 Goals
- Bruno: 11 Goals, 7 Assists
He’s been the talk of the town for some time now and Nick Pope has been the catalyst of his side’s defensive unit this season as well.
A massive reason for Burnley’s rejuvenation has been their backline. The club has pulled off three cleansheets in its last five matches, a club which can leave any team barking up the wrong tree.
We’ll be opting for Erik Pieters from the side while Manchester United will be represented by a trivalent of picks. Burnley have scored on only four times in their last five matches, a side Manchester United can easily spurn from scoring today.
Harry Maguire, two assist man Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Victor Lindelof all feature from the club for us.
Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United’s top scorer in the league with the 12 goals to his name retains his place in our team for the day. Fred will join him up for the day’s clash owing to his ability to do the dirty work at the back.
Burnley will elsewhere find company in Ashley Westwood who has the one goal and one assist to his name.
Completing the set of picks from Burnley’s setup is Chris Wood with the striker having netted three times for the side. Marcus Rashford will be inducted in our team from the other side given his 7 goals and 4 assists.
Anthony Martial has managed to scamper his way to three assists to see him complete the one-two of picks from the club.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His hand in 19 goals make Bruno our captain while Rashford is the vice-captain.
Pope, Maguire, Lindelof, Aaron, Pieters, Bruno, Ashley, Fred, Martial, Marcus, Wood
