Burnley welcome inconsistent Manchester United to Turf Moor for a crunch Premier League clash, as they look to end their year on a high with a win. In a bid to achieve this feat, a fixture against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s sub-par side could not have come at a better time.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 20
Kick-off:
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley)

The history books have it that the home side have struggled against this opposition over the years, given you would have to go as far back as 2009 to highlight a Burnley win against the Red Devils.

With Manchester United struggling on the road against mediocre Premier League teams, the Clarets are definitely in for a shout in this one. They will likely setup a defensive block while looking to hurt the visitors on the counter.

An exciting game on the cards, count on both sides to register goals before the end of the ninety minutes in a free-flowing attacking game.

Burnley vs Manchester United Team News

Manchester United were on song on Boxing Day, hammering Newcastle United by a flattering 4-1 score-line to give the Old Trafford faithful something to cheer about. They completed the Magpies drubbing in brilliant fashion, dominating the game from start to finish.

As Newcastle’s Longstaff sent the visitors ahead, the mood around the stadium simmered slowly as the Stretford End could not hide their frustration. They were staring another humiliating defeat right in the face following the annihilating 2-0 loss to relegation-threatened Watford last weekend.

However, the Red Devils rallied around, goals from the likes of Martial, Greenwood and Rashford clinching maximum points for the home side in amiable fashion.

Burnley, on the other hand, will be kicking themselves for falling to a narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of a new-look Everton despite putting up a very strong performance against the Toffees. They put no foot wrong throughout the course of the game but ended up with a defeat.

That loss put an end to their two-game winning streak in the league as they sit 12th on the log, a good position to achieve a decent midtable finish come the end of the season. Their last home game saw them edge out Newcastle in a thrilling 1-0 encounter on this ground.

The Burnley attackers definitely know where the goalpost is at, finding the back of the net in every single home game this season, even when the results went sideways. A record of 5 wins and 4 losses at Turf Moor this season is a pretty decent record, by all standards.

In sharp contrast, the hosts have been mediocre on the road, more so against teams in the bottom half of the table. They have managed a disappointing record of 2 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses on their travels.

The Red Devils have failed to register a clean sheet on the road so far this season and the Clarets have seldom failed to find the back of the net in front of the home support. Expect a very tough game at Turf Moor between two unconvincing sides come Saturday evening.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Burnley vs Man United Predictions

An out-and-out win for the visitors is definitely not something you can bank on, given Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s struggles against the league’s minnows, especially on the road. However, they should have enough about themselves to salvage a point against the Clarets.

Sean Dyche is likely to set his side up to frustrate the Red Devils by dropping deep to defend while looking to break on the counter. This tactic has proven to be so efficient against Manchester United and Saturday evening is unlikely to be any different.
