England Premier League
(26 Dec 2017)
Manchester United – Burnley
Manchester United welcomes Burnley in a match of the 20th round of the Premier League.
Manchester United: The home team is currently taking the 2nd position in the league with 42 points won after 13 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses. In the last match, Manchester United suffered an injury-time equaliser to draw (2-2) at Leicester. Besides that match, they have been faultless in front of their own fans. Also, they are undefeated in their last 3 matches. They haven’t been very strong defensively since they have suffered goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offence has scored frequently and kept them in top two.
Burnley: The away team is currently in the 7th position in the league. They managed to win 32 points after 9 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses. In the previous round, Burnley lost (0-3) out to Tottenham at home. However, this will be a monumental task for Burnley at Old Trafford although they usually get better results in away matches than at home.
Conclusion: Both sides come into this game on the back of disappointing results. Therefore, both of them will try to get some points after the final whistle. In terms of the head to head, the last six matches have been close and hard-fought. However, the recent matches have seen a return to scoring form for Romelu Lukaku while the hosts have many stars who can contribute in beating Burnley. Therefore, a home team should win today, maybe with 2 or more goals winning margin.
