Dream 11 Top Picks and Player Stats
Anthony Elanga: He is one of the rising stars of the Ten Hag era. Elanga is expected to take control of the wings and will look to cut inside at every possible opportunity to trouble the Burnley defence.
Manuel Benson: The most dependable player for Kompany is Benson, who has seven goals for Burnley. He is a pain inside the box, and his instincts are amazing. Even when he is not in possession, he can still have an impact, and this will be his most significant game.
