Manchester United hold a healthy lead over their rivals in the race for a top-four finish in the Premier League. On Sunday, the Red Devils will host Burnley as they look to consolidate their hold on second place.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side has been playing some fantastic football in recent weeks and they’ve so far won all their matches since returning from the international break.
The Reds have won each of their last four matches, including home and away victories against Granada in the Europa League. Fresh from reaching the semi-final of the Europa League, Manchester United will be hoping to continue with their winning run when Burnley visits Old Trafford.
Unfortunately for Sean Dyche’s side, they are currently enduring a miserable run of form. Burnley have lost each of their last two Premier League matches and it may just be the wrong time to be coming up against an in-form side like Manchester United.
However, the Clarets are not new to causing upsets. They’ve already beaten Liverpool and Everton this season and also recently held Leicester City and Arsenal to draws.
These are impressive results and if Burnley can produce a similarly spirited performance against Manchester United, then they could cause Solskjaer’s side a lot of trouble.
In terms of injuries, both teams do not have any major concerns. Marcus Rashford is nursing an injury but is expected to start for Manchester United on Sunday after being rested in midweek.
Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay also missed the game against Granada due to suspension and will be available for selection against Burnley.
Meanwhile, the Clarets also have Chris Wood back in action and will be counting on the Aussie and his strike partner Matej Vydra to get something out of this game.
As of the time of writing this piece, Betika prices Manchester United at 1.40 win, Burnley also has a winning odd of 8.50 and a draw is priced at 5.20.
