All is right as rain at Manchester United once again.At least thats what the reaction from within the club would have many believe after their 1-0 EFL Cup victory over neighbours and rivals Manchester City on Wednesday.But Jose Mourinhos United (4-2-3) have won just one of their last six Premier League games, and many concerns remain over the make-up of the side and their prospects for the remainder of the season.They will try to turn things around Saturday against visiting Burnley.The respective form of the Red Devils two most high-profile summer recruits are chief among those concerns.Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who started against City in midweek and failed to score against a weakened back-line, has gone five league games without finding the back of the net -- his longest goal drought in over six years.And in the case of Paul Pogba, the France international has yet to tie down a set role in a confused Manchester United midfield. At times, the former Juventus star has been used as a number 10 off the striker and at others he has been used in a midfield two with either the excellent Ander Herrera or Marouane Fellaini.But Pogbas best performances for his country and former club have come as part of a midfield three with an effective anchor player in midfield -- something that Mourinho has yet to successfully recreate.However, there were signs that an effective tactical set-up could be blossoming during the win over City with Herrera and veteran Michael Carrick dovetailing well to allow Pogba the freedom to be closer to his dynamic, box-to-box best. And full-back Luke Shaw was certainly encouraged by the display, before adding that the win over the clubs closest rivals had been hugely important to the players.We focused on Man City leading up to the game and we knew how big this game was, Shaw said. We saw Guardiola said it was like a final and, to us, that is what it felt like; to get the win was massive.I think it was a big confidence boost after the disappointing result (a 4-0 defeat at Chelsea last weekend) but we bounced back, got a win and now we need to go on a winning streak.Saturday sees newly-promoted Burnley (3-1-5) visit Old Trafford, with Sean Dyches side in high spirits after last weekends 2-1 victory over European hopefuls Everton.The Clarets will bring England international and former United academy goalkeeper Tom Heaton with them. He cant wait for the challenge of playing against the club where he learned his trade.Its a special game -- I still hold a lot of affection for the football club, Heaton said. I spent 13 years there and its always a nice feeling going back. But, as ever, there will be a job to do and that will be the focus.We know the quality theyve got, but we know the quality weve got and how we want to go about things. We want to make it uncomfortable and impact on the game how we know we can. And if do that then hopefully we will give ourselves a great chance of coming away with a result.Burnley have concerns over the fitness of Ashley Barnes, George Boyd, Steven Defour and Stephen Ward.United have doubts over the fitness of Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial and Chris Smalling. Eric Bailly is out.The English Football Association announced this week that it has charged Mourinho with misconduct for his comments that it might be difficult for referee and Manchester resident Anthony Taylor to have a very good performance prior to their Oct. 17 match with Liverpool. Often disciplined while at Chelsea, this is the first time Mourinho has been charged at United.He has until Monday to respond.Air Force 1 Alte Supreme .
