Burnley vs Manchester United
English Premier League
Date: 8 February 2022, Tuesday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).
Manchester United somehow stole the victory in the previous round’s affair against direct rivals in the battle for the Champions League spots two weeks ago.
Substitute Marcus Rashford bagged the late stoppage-time goal after a nice delivery from another substitute Edinson Cavani for the delirium among the players on the pitch.
The victory pushed the Red Devils into the top four in the Premier League standings. They will be hoping to stay there after this mid-week round given they travel to Turf Moor to face the rock-bottomed Burnley on Tuesday evening.
Burnley are having a terrible campaign in this term of Premier League. They are the only team in the league with a single win so far in the season.
Sean Dyche’s men are now four points behind the safe zone and there is not much to suggest better days for them right now.
On a positive note for Dyche, his key man Maxwel Cornet did not have a successful African Cup of Nations campaign with Ivory Coast and will be available here.
Also, Burnley signed a great addition in attack as the former Wolfsburg talisman Wout Weghorst arrived at Turf Moor.
Also, it is worth noting that Clarets managed to keep Arsenal at bay in a goalless draw two weeks ago at Emirates Stadium.
Last but not least, Burnley are unbeaten in the last four home matches in Premier League. Can they make it five on the spin here against Manchester United?
Burnley vs Manchester United Head-to-head
- Manchester United travel to Turf Moor on the back of three straight wins over Clarets.
- Manchester United won the last two H2H meetings with Burnley with an identical 3-1 scoreline.
- Interestingly, Manchester United have only won 17 of 43 away clashes against Burnley.
Burnley vs Manchester United Prediction
Manchester United did not impress at all in the recent outings even despite the wins over Brentford and West Ham in the last two rounds.
Knowing that Burnley are undefeated in four successive Premier League affairs at Turf Moor, we are tempted to take the 2.25 odds offered for the hosts not to lose here.
