Manchester United vs Burnley Match Preview

The Red Devils managed an important 4-2 win against Sheffield United on Wednesday to take sixth place and a Europa League spot. They now have a three-point advantage over Newcastle, who they still have to face in the upcoming fixtures, and six points over Chelsea, who has one more game remaining.

After receiving hard criticism for their performance against Coventry in the FA Cup semifinals, Erik ten Hag made a comment that perfectly portrays Manchester United’s situation in the past years:

“Top football is about results. We made it to a final and we deserved it not only by this game but also the other games.”

The Dutch manager has struggled to implement a style of play in what is now his second season in charge of the team, more so it feels like a clear step down from last season. They could be facing their worst Premier League season ever, so a FA Cup final win over Manchester City may be his only chance of getting the all-important results to retain his job.

Burnley is back on the fight for survival after a key 4-1 win over Sheffield United last weekend. They trail Nottingham Forrest, the 17th place team, by three points but, have a big disadvantage in goal difference. That leaves The Clarets requiring at least four more points than them in their last five games to stay up for another season.

Manchester United vs Burnley Prediction

Manchester United to win at 1.50

Besides the lack of identity and style of play of this Manchester United team, the sheer quality advantage and attacking strength should be enough to get the win. They are unbeaten in their last six games without against the Clarets, with five wins and a draw.

Vincent Kompany’s team will be looking to score some crucial points at Old Trafford knowing that with every game that goes by the margin gets smaller and smaller. A win on the road against such a team can provide a big boost for the whole club in a moment of great need.
