Man United – Burnley, Premier League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR MAN UNITED - BURNLEY
United do not stop winning duels. Solskjaer have now 8 wins from 8 games and if he goes on like that, it will be no wonder if they give him a new contract this season, especially they end in top 4 or eliminate PSG, which does not seem so impossible anymore. United now score more goals and they do not have important injuries, so they have quite a lot of attacking options.
Burnley are out of the FA Cup and again allowed 5 goals from City, as happened earlier in the season at Etihad, but in the league. They are now returning to Manchester, where they conceded total 10 goals this season and their place in the standings remain dangerous. They still had huge difficulties in their visits and managed to win only over Cardiff and Huddersfield, who are in the relegation zone.
Something that is very important for our prediction is that United have received at least 1 card in each of the matches since Solskjaer is the coach of the team. In addition, when United hosts, they have received a card in each of the league matches. Against Burnley only Southampton in the first leg and Tottenham have not received a card in clarets visits. Referee here is Moss, who is looks for discipline and United had a card in each of the last 7 games between them and Burnley, so here the odds for United – Over 0.5 cards at 1.65 is great.
