Manchester United vs Burnley prediction comes before the next round of the Premier League. This game will be played on Wednesday, January 22, at the Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester, England. In this match preview, we bring you some very useful betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two teams.
Manchester United vs Burnley Betting Tips
Burnley are coming to the Old Trafford after a win over Leicester City last weekend. The win got them up in the table, although they are still not safe from relegation. Still, if they continue playing well, they can hope for a place in the mid of the table.
Their opponent, Manchester United lost their previous match to the table leaders Liverpool. That was the second defeat of the Red Devils in the previous three rounds. The other defeat happened to Arsenal. However, before that defeat, Manchester United beat Burnley, their next opponent.
Manchester United are not a bad side and their current position in the Premier League table shows that. The Red Devils are 5th at the moment, with 5 points less than Chelsea who are a place above. Their fans would love to get into the competition for a place in the Champions League. In normal circumstances, such a wish would be justified. However, Manchester United are struggling with injuries.
The Red Devils are without Pogba who might be on his way to leave the club. Another midfielder, Scott McTominay is out, leaving Manchester United soft in the middle. Still, their biggest problem is the injury of Marcus Rashford, their arguably best player this season.
The English forward has been phenomenal in the final third, scoring a total of 14 league goals this season, which makes him the 3rd top scorer in the Premier League. Unfortunately, he is going to be out for at least a couple of weeks due to a lower back injury.
Unless Manchester United sign a striker over the January transfer window, their future does not look good. But, even if they do it, the player won’t be able to play in the game with Burnley. Instead, Manchester United will have to do with Martial and/or Greenwood in the attack. With those guys leading the offense, Burney’s chances of keeping a clean sheet don’t look too bad.

Manchester United Form and Latest News
They did lose to Liverpool in the previous round of the Premier League, but before that, they played a few fine matches. They thrashed Norwich 4:0 in the league and beat Wolves in the FA Cup. If it weren’t for the injury crisis, this team would be a major favorite in this game. This way, they don’t seem capable of scoring, at least not too many times.
Burnley Form and Latest News
They beat Leicester City in the previous round, showing that they’re not as bad as their form from the last year might have suggested. This team has an excellent defense, although they did allow a lot of goals so far. Still, the same players that helped Burnley get to the Europa League a few seasons ago are still in the team, defenders included. And these guys look capable of achieving a clean sheet against Manchester United.
