Burnley vs Manchester United Match Preview and Team News
Burnley required a 90th-minute equalizer from Matej Vydra to force their third-round tie against MK Dons to extra time and a penalty shootout, which the Clarets eventually won. Burnley is unbeaten in their last five matches at Turf Moor, winning three on the spin. The hosts are 16th in the table on 16 points – five points above the relegation zone. The Clarets have two games in hand over three of the sides below them. Burnley and Manchester United have faced each other 12 times in the Premier League, and United have won half of those matches, drawing a further four and losing two. The two sides’ most recent meeting ended in a shock 2-0 win for Burnley at Old Trafford in January 2020. Chris Wood and Jay Rodriguez scored Burnley’s goals on either side of the break. Chris Wood is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
Manchester United can go three points clear at the top of the Premier League table with a win at Burnley and are tipped to seize that opportunity. The Red Devils have won on their last four trips to Turf Moor, keeping clean sheets in all of those matches and netting seven times themselves. Manchester United bounced back from a 2-0 loss to neighbors City in the EFL Cup semi-finals to shade Watford 1-0 in the FA Cup, thanks to Scott McTominay’s early header. The Red Devils were made to work harder than expected by the Hornets, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did make wholesale changes for that contest. United are unbeaten in 10 outings in the league, winning eight of those games to draw level at the summit with Liverpool, who they visit on Sunday. Back-to-back victories over Wolves and Aston Villa, coupled with dropped points for Liverpool, means that United are level on points with Jurgen Klopp’s side, and a draw or victory at Turf Moor would see them take the lead ahead of next weekend’s huge game between the top two at Anfield. McTominay has excellent control of the ball, he can play in several positions, and every team needs a player like this. Marcus Rashford is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance.
