Manchester United vs. Burnley Match Analysis and Prediction

After confirming their credentials in the Europa Last Four, Manchester United focuses on the Premier League, where they play host to Burnley. The match schedules for Sunday at Old Trafford with kickoff at 6 pm.

The Red Devils enter the clash 14 places and 30 points clear of their visitors’ visitors. However, Burnley has been a thorn in the eyes of the Red Devils in their home turf in recent years.

A home tie against Burnley looks like the Red Devils’ match needed to secure their top-four hopes this finish after another successful week in the Europa League. A spot in the Europa semi-finals against Roma is a mouth-watering encounter for Ole Gunnar to search for the first medal at the helm.

However, the Clarets won the corresponding fixture last season and remain unbeaten in their last four Premier League visits to Old Trafford. It is a streak that produced three draws in their long run.

Sean Dyche’s men find themselves in an unlikely position to become the second team in the Premier League history to avoid defeat in five consecutive away games against Man United, with Chelsea from 1994 to 1998 the only team to have achieved this status.

Moreover, the Red Devils have not managed to secure a league double over Burnley since 1975-76. Therefore, there is a need to secure the three points at their home turf.
