Burnley vs Middlesbrough
Date: 17 December 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).
Burnley host Middlesbrough in one of the most exciting games of Matchday No 23 in English Championship on Saturday afternoon at Turf Moor.
Both teams have been successful last weekend on the competition’s restart. Clarets continued from where they stopped before the World Cup break, snatching a demolishing 0-3 victory over Queens Park Rangers away at Loftus Road.
Nathan Tella maintained his extraordinary spell of form by netting his seventh goal of the season on the occasion.
It was Burnley’s third consecutive victory in all competitions. Vincent Kompany’s men won six of the last seven outings in all competitions, netting at least two goals in each of these seven matches in the process.
Burnley boast the best goal-scoring record in the entire league by a mile with their 43 goals scored in 22 outings so far in the season.
It will be very interesting to see how the current table-toppers will cope with rejuvenated Middlesbrough here.
Boro picked up their third subsequent victory seven days ago, beating Luton 2-1 at Riverside Stadium.
Michael Carrick’s men showed a great team spirit to score the late winner through substitute Matt Crooks.
Boro are flying high under Carrick. They have five wins and a draw in the last six matches in all competitions and they have also bagged at least two goals in each of the previous four victories in the process.
