Burnley vs Manchester United Prediction & Match Preview

Burnley vs Manchester United
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 12 January 2021
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: Turf Moor.

The Red Devils are placed second in the table at the moment. However, they have a game in hand, and are level on points with the toppers Liverpool, who also appear to be struggling as of now.

In short, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have a great opportunity to climb to the top of the table for the very first time since Sir Alex Ferguson bid goodbye to them. And be assured that they will not take this chance lightly.

Moreover, they are pitted against the Clarets, who have been one of the worst teams in the league all through this season. Note that they are also placed 16th in the table, and have posted a total of just four wins so far.

In addition, they have scored a total of just nine goals in the competition so far, and most importantly, have a worrying h2h record against this rival over the years.

For the reasons, expect Manchester United to post the win this Tuesday, and get to the top of standings.

Burnley vs Manchester United: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The Devils have a 100% unbeaten record since 2010, barring a single defeat.
  • They have scored two or more goals in five of the preceding seven clashes.
  • They have kept clean sheets in seven of the former eleven encounters.
  • At this venue, the guests are on a four-game winning run.
  • Since 2009, not once have the hosts scored a single goal at this stadium.

Burnley vs Manchester United Prediction

Sean Dyche’s men recorded a 1-0 win at home the last match-day, against Sheffield United. In the meantime, Solskjaer’s men posted a 2-1 win at home the past game week, against Aston Villa.

Going on, the Clarets were winless in 16 of their last 21 overall match-ups, and they remained so in ten of their former thirteen appearances at this venue.

On the other hand, their opposite number have lost just thrice in their past 16 fixtures – once against arch-rivals Manchester City, and twice in the Champions League.

And on the road, their only three wins in the whole of 2020 had come in either Europa League, or the Champions League.

And finally, the Devils have a great h2h record against this opponent over the years as well, and especially so at this stadium.

Considering these factors, expect Manchester United to post a convincing win this Tuesday.
