How to follow United v Burnley

Friday 26 April 2024 10:49

Manchester United are back in action in the Premier League on Saturday, as we face Burnley in a 15:00 BST kick-off at Old Trafford.

It’s been seven months since we battled with the Clarets at Turf Moor in the Premier League, with United coming away with three points in a hard-earned 1-0 win.

Erik ten Hag’s side will be looking to ride the wave of the win in the FA Cup over Coventry last weekend, and the following victory over Sheffield United at Old Trafford on Wednesday, and use this fixture to close the gap on fifth-placed Tottenham.

Sunday’s FA Cup tie at Wembley added another two names to United’s extensive injury list, as both Marcus Rashford and opening goalscorer Scott McTominay were substituted, while Willy Kambwala, Mason Mount and Sofyan Amrabat were left out of the tie against Coventry.

Rashford missed Wednesday's win over Sheffield United, but McTominay and Amrabat came off the bench. Ten Hag said Mount should be available for Burnley.

Casemiro played his second game at centre-back against the Blades, partnering Harry Maguire.

For Vincent Kompany’s men, both Nathan Redmond and Aaron Ramsey are sidelined for the season, while Jordan Beyer and Ameen Al-Dakhil are unlikely to return. Lyle Foster has been passed fit to play after being withdrawn early last weekend.

United have been triumphant in the last two games against Burnley, with a 1-0 win last time out, and a previous 2-0 win in the EFL Cup at Old Trafford.

Bruno Fernandes was influential in both games, scoring an unbelievable goal at Turf Moor to seal the win, and the skipper is likely to have a key role in the game on Saturday.

It's a win and two draws in the last three Premier League games for United, as we shared four goals with Liverpool and Bournemouth before defeating Sheffield United 4-2. 

Burnley are currently 19th in the league, losing once in their last three games. The most recent match for the Clarets was an emphatic win over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane, putting the Blades away 4-1.

Kompany will be looking to climb to 18th in the league with a win on Saturday and could be level on points with 17th-placed Nottingham Forest by the time they face Manchester City on Sunday.
