Preliminary Team Information for Burnley Vs. Manchester United in the League Cup
The fourth round of the League Cup will mark the return of home football for Manchester United, who will be in play once again the following week.
As stated on the official website of the club, we are still in the process of determining which of the United players will report for duty in Qatar following the conclusion of the World Cup.
Burnley, captained by Vincent Kompany, will take against United on the following Wednesday, and given the fluid nature of United’s roster, Burnley will be trying to pull off an upset.
Due to the fact that they will be competing in the World Cup final on Sunday, central defenders Lisandro Martinez and Rafael Varane will not be eligible for selection as a result of their commitment to compete in the game.
It is almost inevitable that Victor Lindelof will begin the tournament on the sidelines, possibly alongside Harry Maguire, who will return to the club after a successful performance in Qatar.
Eric ten Hag has high hopes that the two will be able to form a productive working relationship, and he believes that he will be able to select them for the league encounter against Nottingham Forest after the holidays as well as the match against Burnley.
Other English players, like Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford, who were eliminated from the World Cup on the previous Saturday will also be evaluated to determine whether or not they are fit to play the following week.
Diogo Dalot also played in Qatar but was eliminated in the quarterfinals by Portugal; as a result, it is likely that Aaron Van Bissaka will be brought in from the cold to start the season for the first time in the right-back position.
Even if he did not travel to Qatar, Jaydon Sancho is still unable to play since he is continuing to work on his conditioning outside of the club.
As a result of Sancho’s absence, Alejandro Garnacho is in a strong position to start on the left side. After playing a significant part for United before to the World Cup, the young player will strive to take up where he left off before the break and continue where he was going.
Anthony Martial will play in two recent friendly matches alongside Garnacho in the hopes of returning to full fitness and getting his season started. Garnacho will play in the attack alongside Anthony Martial. Garnacho will play alongside Anthony Martial.
Ten Hag has options in goal, as David de Gea will not be playing in the World Cup and Martin Dubravka is also vying for the win. Despite the fact that there is no question that Dubravka is the head coach of choice, he did not start the most recent match versus Villa.
