Burnley predicted the line-up against Man Utd

6

Over two weeks since their last Premier League outing, Burnley make the short trip to face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Thursday.

Sean Dyche’s men have been out of action since their goalless draw against West Ham on December 12 after three straight Covid-19 forced launches.

Meanwhile, the Clarets have slipped to the bottom of the league – just one point above Norwich – and Dyche will be keen to curb any relegation problems.

This is how Burnley could line up.

Nick Pope (GK) – Did not cover himself in honor during the defeat against Newcastle earlier this month.

Matthew Lowton (RB) – Offers greater defensive protection in the back line.

James Tarkowski (CB) – Strongly linked to a move to Newcastle in January when the Magpies seem to weaken a relegation rival.

Ben Mee (CB) – Has formed a strong partnership with Tarkowski over the years.

Charlie Taylor (LB) – Defensively sound and provides a platform for McNeil to be aggressive on the left wing.

Johann Gudmundsson (RM) – Boasts an excellent delivery from large areas, which is the key for Burnley.

Jack Cork (CM) – Has worked his way into the team in recent weeks and he will be keen to nail his starting spot.

Ashley Westwood (CM) – A regular match in this Burnley site under Dyche over the years.

Dwight McNeil (LM) – Part of the Man Utd Academy lineup until he was released as a 14-year-old.

Maxwel Cornet (ST) – Missed a draw against West Ham and a two-week break will have helped him recover.

Chris Wood (ST) – Has not been productive in front of goal this season, but his height makes him such a handful for defenders.
