Burnley hosts Manchester United in round 24 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Tuesday, February 8th at Turf Moor (Burnley)
If earlier the main outsider of the Premier League was Norwich City, now Burnley has received this status. Unsuccessful results (an 8-match winless streak) pushed the team to the bottom of the standings. The 2021/2022 season is in full swing, and the Clarets gained only one victory in the English Premier League. Sean Dyche still hasn’t been fired. His charges concede a little, but the effectiveness of the attack leaves much to be desired. In the previous round, Burnley managed to defend a goalless draw against Arsenal in London. During the winter, management took advantage of Newcastle’s wealthy owners. Burnley arranged a great deal. The club sold central striker Chris Wood for 30 million euros, and Wout Weghorst was bought from Wolfsburg for 14 million. He is not only a year younger but also looks better on the pitch than Wood.

The change of head coach did not help Manchester United much. The team was unstable under Solskjaer, and the situation is about the same under Ralf Rangnick. The Red Devils are in fourth place in the English Premier League standings, but they make many mistakes and gain minimal victories with great difficulty. In the previous round, the Mancunians managed to miraculously snatch victory from West Ham only in the 93rd minute (1-0). The substitutions were successful. Cavani and Rashford, who appeared on the pitch in the second half, helped the Devils earn three points. The Uruguayan assisted, and Marcus scored. In winter, the club began cleaning the squad. Manchester United loaned out four players: Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek, Axel Tuanzebe, and Amad Diallo.
We think that the upcoming game will be rich in goals. Both teams need points. Manchester United will try to gain a foothold in the top four of the Premier League standings, and Burnley will strive to gradually leave the relegation zone and maintain a place in the top division. A month ago, the teams have already crossed paths in the championship. Then the Mancunians won 3-1. In such a short period of time, little has changed. The only difference is the venue of the game.
