Burnley’s status as a Premier League club is under threat this term, as the club sit languishing in bottom place with no wins in their last 15 matches in all competitions. However, with many of their games called off due to adverse weather and COVID-19, they do have games in hand, including three on 17th placed Norwich City.
The Clarets returned from a rather long enforced break by drawing 0-0 away at Champions League chasing Arsenal last month, before another goalless outing over the weekend against Watford in the Premier League. A win in this fixture would be unexpected but most-welcomed given the club’s current situation.
Manchester United’s season has been as idiosyncratic as many have in recent seasons. The Red Devils are now operating under the guidance Ralf Rangnick on a temporary basis following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and trying to hold onto their top four spot in the Premier League table to secure Champions League football for next season.
While some aspects of their play have improved under the German, the Red Devils are still inconsistent to say the least and they suffered an embarrassing FA Cup exit at the hands of Championship outfit Middlesbrough on Friday night. Can they bounce back as soon as possible with three points at Turf Moor on Tuesday?

Burnley vs Man Utd: Match Stats
Paul Pogba made his return to the Manchester United squad on Friday night and marked said return by picking up a yellow card. In his last six matches for club and country, the French midfielder has picked up three yellows and one red, so is a good bet to find himself in the referee’s book once again on Tuesday night.
All four of Manchester United’s last four Premier League games have seen more goals scored after half-time than they half beforehand, with only one first-half goal being scored in comparison to nine in the second-half. Burnley meanwhile have scored just one first-half goal in their last seven league games.
