And now Martinez adds to the list of woes in United’s backline with Jonny Evans coming in as a replacement.
It had fans fearing ahead of their trip to Turf Moor and the season ahead as one said: “Just give Burnley the 3 points.”
Another added: “We can as well start the tears now.”
One fumed: “”This lineup stinks!! What is Erik Teg hag doing?”
Sergio Reguilon slotted in at left-back with Diogo Dalot on the right with Victor Lindelof pairing Evans.
Casemiro, Scott McTominay and Hannibal Mejbri made up a three-man midfield allowing Bruno Fernandes to push further afield.
It comes with summer signings Mason Mount and Sofyan Amrabat both out injured but Raphael Varane did return to the bench.
“But Varane will train and we will see. Amrabat, he will train and we will see. Mount, as well, but they all didn’t play for a short or longer term.
“Varane, obviously, was the shortest [time] out.”
