Well then, Manchester United well and truly threw a spanner in the title race last weekend and our resident Red Devils in the Transfer Tavern loved every minute of it.
Boss, Jose Mourinho did the ultimate job on his former club, Chelsea, and although the Blues look more than comfortable at the top of the table – their lead over second place, Spurs, has been narrowed down to four points.
The win also helped United in their pursuit of fourth spot in the Premier League but with that said, many of our United punters believe that Mourinho’s men should be looking to win the Europa League and bring another trophy to Old Trafford alongside Champions League football next season.
Our landlord agrees and that is why when devising the XI to take on Burnley this weekend, he has looked at which players may be rested especially after United play on Thursday against Anderlecht and with the Manchester derby coming up in the week.
However, with that said, the Red Devils cannot expect an easy ride at Turf Moore – especially following the Clarets battling performance in the reverse fixture in which they came away with a 0-0 draw.
So with maybe not the most straightforward fixture as it seems, our landlord has noted down the United XI he expects to take the field come Sunday.
Let’s take a look here…
