Mason Mount and Raphael Varane are in contention to play for Manchester United when they face off against Burnley at Turf Moor.
The Red Devils will be looking to get back to winning ways when they face off against the Clarets. Erik ten Hag was pleased with the news about the team ahead of the match.
This week, Mason Mount, Sofyan Amrabat, and Raphael Varane trained. These players are expected to be in contention to start against Burnley. In addition, Kobbie Mainoo and Harry Maguire are hoping to be available soon.
Some of the players who are still out are Luke Shaw, Amad Diallo, Aaron Wan-Bisaka, and Tyrell Malacia. Also, Jadon and Antony are not expected to be available for a long time due to their off-field problems.
During his press conference, Erik ten Hag was asked about the availability of various players. He wouldn’t provide much information about the players during his press briefing. This was the same approach he took earlier this week when discussing the match against Bayern Munich.

The goalless streak that the Clarters have been going through in August and September will be their motivation for this game. However, it might not be the end of their misery as Manchester United are expected to get a win through the efforts of Rasmus Hojlund.
