Jose Mourinho revealed that Antonio Valencia may miss out on some action after injury problems were revealed before their clash against ​Leicester, with that in mind, Lindelof may start in the position of the United captain as he did in their previous game.


Smalling and Jones will look to continue their defensive partnership in the absence of Eric Bailly while Ashley Young will continue his fine form at left back.

Midfield

Matic and Pogba will look to continue their partnership in the middle of the field while Mourinho will look to Juan Mata to insert creativity into the midfield as he did against Leicester at the weekend.


Martial and Lingard will likely be on either wing, adding pace and flair to the side, while also adding a goalscoring threat.

Forwards

  • Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku has had an up and down season, with a strong start to the campaign but the Belgian forward's performances have since dropped off.


Lukaku has proven himself to be a prolific scorer and Mourinho has continued to persist with the 24-year-old, United will be hoping their forward can find the net against ​Burnley.
