No Sancho or Lingard? How Man Utd could line up against Burnley

Ralf Rangnick and his Manchester United side are in desperate need of a convincing win against Burnley in their Premier League clash

Ralf Rangnick will be desperate to get back to winning ways when his Manchester United side return to Premier League action to face Burnley on Tuesday night.

The Old Trafford side were recently humbled in the FA Cup by defeat to Middlesbrough and should err on the side of caution when they make the trip to Burnley.

In defence, Rangnick will still be without Eric Bailly through injury, while Victor Lindelof could make a return to the bench after being out with an illness. As such, Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane should make up the defensive pairing on the night.

Alex Telles will also be back from international duty and ready to start for Man Utd at left-back.

Bruno Fernandes took a heavy knock against Boro at the weekend, but he should be in midfield alongside Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay for this top-flight clash.

In attack, Rangnick is unlikely to call upon Jesse Lingard and admitted on Friday that Jadon Sancho was “tired”, so a starting front three of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Elanga and Cristiano Ronaldo seems like the most likely combination for Man Utd.
