Manchester United take on Burnley On Sunday in a must-win affair for José Mourinho if he must save his job after the game.

The Red Devils were defeated 3-0 in their last Premier League fixture against their North London rival Tottenham, therefore, they must defeat Burnley, who have also been poor since the start of the season.

In order to emerge victorious for the first time in three weeks, the Portuguese manager is set to ring changes to his starting lineup ahead of the game.

Mourinho is likely going to turn to a 4-3-3 formation after he was thrashed by Tottenham when he tried a 3-5-2 formation last Monday.

David De Gea is set to start in goal for the 20-time Premier League Champions on Sunday.

Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are out injured, therefore, Chris Smalling and Eric Bailly are set to replace both players at the heart of defence for the game.

After a woeful performance against Spurs during the Week, Victor Lindelof is set to remain on the bench while Antonio Valencia takes his place.

Luke Shaw is definitely going to retain his place in the starting eleven after his blistering display against Tottenham.

Fit-again midfielder Nemanja Matic is set to start alongside want-away Frenchman Paul Pogba and Fred at the middle of the pitch to complete a three-man midfield.

In attack, Marcus Rashford and Alexis Sanchez are going to start at the right and left flank of attack respectively. It means Jesse Lingard would be dropped to the bench.

Romelu Lukaku will feature as a center-forward during the game.

Predicted XI: David De Gea, Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly, Luke Shaw; Nemanja Matic, Fred, Paul Pogba; Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford.
