Manchester United can go top of the Premier League with a win over Burnley on Tuesday and have been strong away from home this season.
Despite sitting 16th in the Premier League table, Burnley’s form has improved of late after losing one of their last six matches. Burnley’s most recent defeat came away from home against Leeds, losing 1-0 at Elland Road. They have bounced back from that result with a 1-0 win over Sheffield United and progression in the FA Cup at the weekend. Sean Dyche’s team beat League One outfit MK Dons on penalties. Matej Vydra equalised in the 94th minute to send the game to extra time before the Clarets won the shootout. Burnley look set to be without Jimmy Dunne, Charlie Taylor, Dwight McNeil and Jay Rodriguez through injury.
Manchester United have the chance to move top of the Premier League if they win at Turf Moor on Tuesday. The away side have won three of their last four matches in all competitions, starting with wins over Wolves and Aston Villa in the Premier League. That was followed up by a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City in the League Cup semi-final. Last time out, they defeated Watford 1-0 in the FA Cup. Captain for the day Scott McTominay scored in the fifth minute to book their place in the fourth round. Manchester United are missing Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw, Eric Bailly, Facundo Pellistri, Édinson Cavani, Victor Lindelof, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones.
Burnley have 45 wins in this fixture to Manchester United’s 62. They have also played out 23 draws. Manchester United won this fixture 2-0 last season. Despite Burnley’s upturn in form, Manchester United’s run of 10 wins in 11 away matches in the Premier League is too difficult.
