Premier League: Burnley vs Manchester United preview


Second-placed Manchester United have a tricky away match on Saturday as they face Burnley at Turf Moor. In the reverse fixture the Clarets stunned the Red Devils at Old Trafford, the match ended 2-2 on Boxing Day but Burnley had a 2-0 lead at half-time. Last season Manchester United won 2-0 at Burnley after being held to a goalless draw at Old Trafford. Burnley have lost just one of their last three home matches against Manchester United but they have not won against the Red Devils since 2009.

Burnley are in a bit of a crisis at the moment, they have not won any of their last seven matches in all competitions and have lost the last three. Last weekend they lost 1-0 at Crystal Palace but they are still seventh in the Premier League table following their great start to the season. However, they have lost three of their last five Premier League matches and scored just three goals. Chris Wood, Tom Heaton, Robbie Brady and Stephen Ward are still out of contention for the home side.

Manchester United are now just twelve points behind leaders Manchester City, they might start dreaming about the Premier League title again if things go well as they took advantage of the Citizens' defeat at Liverpool with a 3-0 victory over Stoke City on Monday. That was their third consecutive victory in all competitions and the fourth consecutive clean sheet. Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are the only injury concerns for manager Jose Mourinho while Ashley Young is back from suspension.

Probable line-ups:

Burnley: Pope - Bardsley, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor - Gudmundsson, Cork, Defour, Nkoudou - Hendrick - Barnes

Man United: De Gea - Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Young - Matic, Pogba - Mata, Lingard, Martial - Lukaku

My prediction: Manchester United to win 1-0.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Burnley win - 6.50
Draw - 3.79
Man United win - 1.53

    Burnley are not in that good form they've had started the season and that's obvious lately.
    So no wonder they loosing on a constant bases and if United players were more concentrated (or better coached..) they could of easily scored 3 or 4 on counters after the first goal.
    A decent side should be able to do that because next time it would end 1-1.
