After beaten by Championship side Bristol City in the League Cup fixture, much has been expected of the Red Devils in their visit to King Power stadium on the weekend. But it was not there to be and Leicester deservingly took the share of the spoils courtesy of the wasteful front line of Manchester United.

It was surprising at times to see the number of time Leicester managed to breach the United defense with 10 men on the field.

Burnley were well beaten by Tottenham on the weekend, or I would rather say by the individual brilliance of Harry Kane, who bagged a hat-trick.

Sean Dyche might not take this seriously as he knew his team was always the second best while coming up against a side in form like Tottenham.

But, he will be clearly aware of what to expect from a desperate Manchester United on Tuesday afternoon. Mourinho is desperate for a win and will be adventurous, which suits Burnley’s style of play.

Manchester United vs Burnley: Predictions

On paper, this might look like easy pickings for Manchester United. But personally, I think this will be a tough game for the Red Devils with Burnley being one of the most disciplined defensive units in the Premier League.

The Clarets had already managed to take points from their away visits to Stamford Bridge and Wembley Stadium. Besides, there is little pressure on them to win here, which help the team to perform at the very best.

United’s recent form is sloppy and they are totally undone by watching cross city rivals Manchester City running away with the league title. I hardly doubt if there is any motivation left in the players to perform at the highest level.

  • Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw at odd.

Manchester United vs Burnley: Head-to-head

United are unbeaten in the last five Premier League meetings with Burnley, 4 wins and 1 draw.

The last Burnley win in their head-to-head meetings can be dated back to the 2009/10 Premier League campaign, which remains to be their only win against Man United in a high number of matches since 1968.

The corresponding fixture at Old Trafford last season was a goal-less draw, which put a halt to United’s 6 match winning streak at home over the Clarets.
