Starting XI: Manchester United v Burnley – Barclays Premier League

Manchester United entertain Burnley at Old Trafford in the Barclays Premier League this evening. The two sides have only met once at the Theatre of Dreams in the Premier League, with United winning that match 3-0. There is a lot history between the two clubs, but prior to Burnley playing at Old Trafford in 2010, they had not visited United since 1984. You have to go back more than 52 years to see a Burnley win at Old Trafford which was on the 22nd September 1962 in a 5-2 victory. United are currently fifth in the league with Burnley in nineteenth place and should United win with other results going their way, third place will be the highest United can make this evening, but Southampton would need to lose or draw against West Ham United. Should current champions, Manchester City slip up at Stoke City, not only would they be further behind Chelsea (who entertain Everton this evening), but United could be within two or three points depending on whether they win or draw, with United winning.

Here are the starting eleven and list of substitutes for both teams this evening:

Manchester United:

1. De Gea;

33. McNair, 4. Jones, 6. Evans, 5. Rojo;

17. Blind;

10. Rooney, 7. Di Maria;

11. Januzaj;

20. Van Persie, 9. Falcao


32. Valdés; 12. Smalling; 8. Mata, 21. Herrera, 25. Valencia, 31. Fellaini; 49. Wilson


1. Heaton;

2. Trippier, 25. Keane, 5. Shackell, 6. Mee;

21. Boyd, 37. Arfield, 14. Jones, 11. Kightly;

30. Barnes, 10. Ings


22. Gilks; 4. Duff, 3. Lafferty, 18. Reid; 7. Wallace; 9. Vokes, 19. Jutkiewicz
