Burnley vs Manchester United
2018/19 English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 1st September 2018
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).
Burnley continue in search of their first Premier League win of the season when they welcome Manchester United to Turf Moor on Sunday.
Burnley’s European outing ended in the mid-week as they drew 1-1 at Turf Moor and couldn’t turn over the 3-1 deficit from the first leg. They will be disappointed but that will give them a chance to focus on domestic games and get the desired results.
The Clarets good performance last season may not be replicated this season as they have started poorly. They weren’t able to win the opening game against Southampton and have since recorded worse results.
Burnley lost 3-1 at home against Watford and lost 4-2 last weekend which have left then with just a point after 3 games. Their problem can be traced to their defense, they have let in 7 goals in the Premier League and 11 goals in last 4 competitive games. They need to solve his issue soon or pay hugely.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils were humiliated at their own backyard on Monday night. They lost 3-0 to Tottenham at Old Trafford, this came after a 3-2 away defeat to Brighton in game week 2.
They were not convincing in their opening game despite winning 2-1 over Leicester City. Their defense seems to be the major issue just like their host, they have conceded 7 goals in just 3 games so far. Mourinho seem to be losing it but he needs to get back on track as soon as possible.
Burnley vs Manchester United: Head to Head
United are unbeaten in their last 6 meetings with 3 wins and 3 draws.
Also Manchester United have lost just once in their last 17 top flight meetings against Burnley.
Burnley vs Manchester United: Prediction
We see this game as an entertaining one, being that the two sides are having defensive issues. The Red Devils have seen at least 3 goals scored in their 3 games while Burnley’s last 3 games have recorded 10 goals.
We are backing the game to record at least 3 goals. Considering that the hosts were involved in a mid-week action, fatigue will play a huge role to Manchester United’s advantage. We are backing them to win this game.
