BREAKING: Manchester United XI vs Burnley announced as Mkhitaryan left out in cold again

Jose Mourinho has named his starting eleven to face Burnley at Old Trafford this afternoon.

This is the United team that will kick-off against the Clarets at 3pm:

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has again failed to make the matchday squad despite being pictured coming off the United bus this afternoon.

Juan Mata dons the captain's armband as Chris Smalling is not fit enough to make the squad, while Michael Carrick drops to the bench after leading United to victory over Manchester City in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.

Matteo Darmian comes in at right-back with no sign of Antonio Valenica in the squad, meaning Mourinho goes into today's game without a recognised defender on the bench.

The Ecuadorian full-back is thought to have picked up an injury in the midweek Manchester derby:

Sean Dyche's team, meanwhile, line out as follows:

Andre Gray returns from a four-match ban for social media comments to partner Sam Vokes in attack.

The Red Devils' last outing in the Premier League was a forgettable one, being trounced 4-0 by Mourinho's former side Chelsea.
