Manchester United host Burnely in the Premier League as they look to build on their 4-2 win against Sheffield United in midweek.

The visitors are in good form themselves, having only lost once in their last seven matches. They will be without Nathan Redmond, Aaron Ramsey, Jordan Beyer, Ameen Al-Dakhil and Luca Koleosho for the visit to Old Trafford.

When it comes to United, injuries have been a major problem for the entire season. Harry Maguire is the only fit centre-back available currently, while Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are the most notable absentees the attack.

Erik ten Hag did provide a positive update on Mason Mount, saying that he will return to the squad for this game.

In even better news, the Dutchman said on Luke Shaw, Lisandro Martinez and Anthony Martial: ”They returned, all three on the pitch. Next week they have to make a step into team training and we think they can be available for the last weeks [of the season].”

The imminent returns of Shaw and Martinez in particular will be vital for United’s upcoming clash with bitter rivals Manchester City in the Emirates FA Cup final, set to be played on May 25.

Predicted XI: Andre Onana; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Casemiro, Diogo Dalot; Scott McTominay, Kobbie Mainoo, Bruno Fernandes; Alejandro Garnacho, Rasmus Hojlund, Amad Diallo.

Score prediction: Manchester United 3 – 1 Burnley.
