Match: Burnley vs Manchester United
League: English Premier League
Date: 28 December 2019, Saturday.
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 Central European Time
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).
Burnley vs Manchester United: Burnley will be interested in taking advantage of the bad form of Manchester United and ending his bad record against visitors since 2009.
United came after a solid victory over Newcastle and it was a game we expected. But things can get difficult on the weekend trip to Turf Moor, although this is a stadium where the Red Devils have had considerable success in recent seasons.
Sean Dyche’s men are a well organized group and can often block teams looking to play football. Meanwhile, they represent a considerable threat at the counter and free throw situations.
It is an appointment that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would like to get rid of at this moment with his team, which comes with a disappointing track record.
We know that United defeated defending champions and Manchester City rivals on the road a few weeks ago, but it must be remembered that they fought together against mediocre teams, especially those who started in a great defensive strategy
It is important to keep in mind that Manchester United has not kept the white sheet on the road this season. And Burnley rarely failed to score against his local fans.
A first half without goals is certainly a problem for the Red Devils and despair in the last hour could see this game played in favor of the hosts.
However, I am not brave enough to achieve an unprecedented victory for the hosts, but I see that they win at least one point of this match and, therefore, a double chance comes into play.
And the goals will be very important here, as we have seen in most Burnley games lately, and that is a reason for me to choose the highest half score as the second half, which I think is the safe option for This Premier League match.
Manchester United scored Newcastle United with a 4-1 foot score line and offsetting a 0-2 loss loss threatened Watford last week.
Solksjaer’s men have now approached the top six, with most points attributable to home games.
It was the results away from home that left United this season, who fell to Watford last time. His overall visitor record in the Premier League so far is a humble 2 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses.
Burnley had a solid performance against a new aspect of Everton the day after Christmas, but ended up losing 0-1. This ended his streak of two consecutive wins, with both winning streaks tied 1-0.
The Clarets start this game in twelfth place, a good position to reach a mid or high point on the table.
Sean Dyche’s men won a narrow 1-0 victory over Newcastle in their last home game and scored in every home game this season, even if the results have been reversed (5W, 4L).
