Manchester United vs Burnley Prediction
By defeating Tottenham and seeing third-placed Leicester struggle, Manchester United took a huge step towards winning second place last weekend. A victory here will cut the deficit between Manchester City and the league leaders to eight points. Nobody expects City to lose, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would want to finish as close to Pep Guardiola’s team as possible in terms of points.
Burnley is now seven points behind the bottom three and has now lost back-to-back Premier League games. Burnley’s recent record at Old Trafford can not be overlooked, and they will head into this game with a higher level of confidence than they would under usual circumstances.
We predict the home team to win another major three points, even though it isn’t a masterpiece.
Our Prediction: Manchester United 1-0 Burnley
