Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Burnley FC


Manchester United must be feeling kind of invigorated right now, as they’re cruising in both the Premier League and the Europa League. A convincing and emotional win over good old friend Jose Mourinho and Tottenham, complements the big wins they have had recently over Manchester City and West Ham.

Through to the semis of the UEL, maybe this will finally be the time that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer breaks his seminfinal jinx?
