Manchester United vs Burnley – Premier League : Manchester United is the English team that occupies the 2nd position of the Premier League with 42 points in 19 matches
José Mourinho’s United is far from the title race, although the Portuguese manager hasn’t given up yet.
Manchester United recently lost at home against City and on the last round they conceded the tying goal at the 94th minute against Leicester, despite them playing with only 10 men, and they’ve dropped 2 very important points.
Of course that they are better than last season, but this season Manchester United had the expectation of winning/fighting for the league title, which is something that is getting further and further from them, due to Manchester City’s consistency.
United goes into this match knowing that they can’t drop any more points.
Burnley is the English team that occupies the 7th position of the Premier League with 32 points in 19 matches.
This Burnley has been a pleasant surprise in this league, because they were expected to be at the bottom half of the league table, fighting to avoid relegation, and here they are now, close to the European spots.
They don’t have a roster with great individual talents, but they work very well as a team.
They don’t concede much goals, which shows good defensive consistency. Burnley hadn’t conceded for 3 matches, but on the last round, things went poorly, and they lost 0-3 with Tottenham at home.
Manchester United vs Burnley – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Manchester United are favourites and they need to win this match, because they have no way of escaping that responsibility. This opponent is within their reach, but they have been playing well and do their defensive tasks pretty well.
They are coming off a negative exhibition against Tottenham, but the Spurs, when they attack, are deadly. United is kind of faithless and their performances haven’t been the best.
I believe that they might win this match, but the first part will be complicated, and I think that, at most, this goal will have 1 goal at half-time.
United will surely have more of the initiative, but Burnley defends well and that defensive cohesion makes me believe there will be Under 1.5 Goals in the first half of this match.
