BUR vs MUN Dream11 Match Prediction: Burnley FC will be playing hosts to Manchester United as they look to bounce back with a positive result after a 1-0 loss to Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton side. Meanwhile, Manchester United redeemed themselves by comprehensively beating Newcastle United 4-1 at home after a disappointing outing at Watford. Ole Gunnar Siolsjkaer’s side has lacked consistency this season and that is something which Burnley could take advantage of at home.
Date- Sunday, December 29 | Kick-Off- 1:15 AM (IST) | Venue- Turf Moor
Jeff Hendrick should be back in the team after undergoing suspension. Ashley Barnes was given a break on against Everton but could return in the starting lineup. Ben Gibson and Aaron Lennon remain doubtful to start versus United. Whereas, Johann Gudmundsson returned from injury in the defeat to Everton.
Though Mason Greenwood scored a screamer against Newcastle, there is a possibility of Daniel James coming in place of him on the right-hand side. Scott McTominay hobbled off in the second half after sustaining a knock and should make way for Paul Pogba to start for the visitors. Andreas Periera and Fred are likely to accommodate the midfield as well. Marcos Rojo, Diogo Dalot and Eric Bailly remain on the sidelines due to injury.
BUR (Expected Playing 11)- Pope; Taylor, Mee, Tarkowski, Lowton; McNeil, Cork, Westwood, Hendrick; Wood, Barnes
MUN (Expected Playing 11)- De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Young; Pogba, Periera, Fred; Greenwood, Martial, Rashford
Dwight McNeil has been one of the top performers from Burnley’s end. McNeil has scored one goal while bagging for assists with a pass accuracy of 79.4% from 1635 minutes in the league this season.
Marcus Rashford continued his foal scoring run against Newcastle to add his tally to 11 goals and four assists from 19 appearances in the league this season. Rashford also has a pass accuracy of 77.1%
Chris Wood has also been lethal in attack for Burnely. The 28-year-old has seven goals and a pass accuracy of 63% from 1385 minutes in the league.
Anthony Martial scored a brace in the last game and got his goal-scoring tally up to six while also having three assists under his belt in the league. The Frenchman also has a pass accuracy of 82.1% this season.
With consistency being a problem for United, it won’t be a surprise for them to drop points against Burnley. However, they do start as favourites.
