Fred and Telles ruled out of Burnley game

Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick has confirmed a double player blow ahead of the Premier League clash against Burnley.

The Red Devils recently bowed out of the FA Cup in the fourth round after a shock penalty shoot-out loss to Middlesbrough.

They will be aiming to make amends at Turf Moor on Tuesday, but ahead of the game, Rangnick will have to cope without two key players.

Fred was a late substitute against Boro last week, but he won’t face the Clarets tomorrow after testing positive for coronavirus.

The Brazilian has been a key cog in midfield, but Rangnick has confirmed that he may also miss the weekend game versus Southampton.

Aside from Fred, compatriot Telles has also been sidelined with the virus. He went into isolation last week, and could make the Saints game.

Manchester United are presently fourth in the league standings with 38 points, one ahead of fifth-placed West Ham with a game in hand.
