Manchester United VS Burnley Match Prediction
It is a famous fixture with plenty of history from all the way back to their first meeting in 1892. This will be the 132nd game between the sides with Manchester United winning 63 to Burnley’s 45. However, Burnley have only won 3 times since 1968 so the momentum is very much with the Reds. When they met earlier in the season in January, it was a 71st minute strike from Paul Pogba which separated the teams. A result which ended Burnley’s hopes of securing three successive home wins at Turf Moor for the first time in four years.

Sean Dyche’s Burnley are experts at frustrating the top teams and will bring their brand of physicality and organised football to Old Trafford on Sunday. However, they are up against a Manchester United who are not only determined to keep Manchester City waiting to confirm their title, but also picking off teams at will in recent weeks. We are backing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team to pick up another three points in this game.
At half-time in both sides’ games last Sunday, the score was 1-0 to the home side. Manchester United’s grip on second place was looking unsteady and Burnley looked set to move way out of trouble and deposit Newcastle United in a relegation battle. However, it all changed in both matches. Manchester United saw off Spurs 3-1 and now have a seven point cushion over third placed West Ham, whilst Burnley conceded two against Newcastle and now find themselves only one point above them. The Premier League match takes place at Old Trafford on April 18 and the live action kicks off at 16:00 local time.
