There is no two ways about it. Manchester United simply must win today to keep their title hopes alive.
Jose Mourinho’s job could well be hanging on by a thread should the Red Devils lose to Burnley this afternoon, but this match will not be easy by any stretch of the imagination.
Anyway, the self-proclaimed Special one has named his starting XI, with a few changes being made from United’s last outing at home to Tottenham Hotspur…

David de Gea starts in goal, with Chris Smalling keeping his place, while Victor Lindelof comes into the team. Luke Shaw, probably our best player to start the season, continues, while Antonio Valencia captains the team at right-back.
Marouane Fellaini plays at the base of the midfield for his first start this season, with Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba just in front of him.
Jesse Lingard will play on the right-hand side, with Alexis Sanchez starting on the left of the three. Romelu Lukaku leads the line, and we’re absolutely desperate for a goal from the big man.
