Man Utd vs Burnley: Predictions

Despite being written off time and again, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to keep Man Utd competitive. The Red Devils cruised past Granada in midweek to reach the Europa League semi-finals, while they remain seven points clear of Leicester City in second place in the Premier League. That said, they are 11 points adrift of leaders and rivals Manchester City but with them and Leicester both in FA Cup action this weekend, United at least have a chance to solidify their runner-up standing.

Burnley head into the weekend on a run of just one win from their last eight Premier League games, while they’ve suffered back-to-back defeats to fellow strugglers Southampton and Newcastle United. As a result, Sean Dyche’s men remain just seven points clear of the relegation zone and although they have a game in hand over Fulham in 18th, the Clarets need to pick up a few more results to confirm their survival. Luckily for Burnley, they boast a strong recent record at Old Trafford.

The home side won three of the first four Premier League meetings between Man Utd and Burnley (D1) – since then, the home side has failed to win any of the nine meetings between the sides (D3 L6).

Only five visiting players have scored in three consecutive appearances at Old Trafford in the competition – Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink (2001), Mark Viduka (2007), Emmanuel Adebayor (2014), Sergio Agüero (2015) and Gylfi Sigurdsson (2017).
