Premier League Preview: Manchester United vs. Burnley FC

It's Matchday 24 of 38 and United has a chance to make a move on the table with a win against Burnley on Tuesday at 20:00 GMT.

Manchester United are poised to finish the month of January with a perfect record, not having lost a match during the first year of the month. Much like a year ago, the Reds have started the New Year at a fantastic pace, but, hopefully, unlike last year, they will be able to seal the deal tonight against Burnley. 

It will not be an easy match for the Reds, as the Clarets have been on a run of their own lately, and have also begun the year in great form. They started the season with a losing record, but they have managed to turn things around and win four games to get climb out of the bottom. True, they did lose in a tough way to City on Saturday, but that was a FA Cup match. The run of good performances by the Clarets should heed a warning to the Reds that they will not be pushovers in tomorrow's match-up.

Sean Dyche, Burnley coach, related, "We’ve been on a run of five very, very good performances and we had to protect the situation today and get some minutes into the players who were coming back from injury. We have two right backs down, and we lost Robbie Brady at the half. A lot is going on and, at the minute, we know the bigger picture and the bigger fight — and that is the Premier League.”

Premier League Prediction

It is great to see the lower ranked teams make up some headway in the Premier League, but as we are closing in on the final stages of the season, Manchester United will be playing as hard as possible. United will win tomorrow night, and it will be a win that was similar to Manchester City's FA Cup win over Burnley. Expect a 3-0 or 4-1 result. bet365 Sports has posted its odds ahead of this match, and they too give it to United at 1.25 for the outright win, while the Clarets come in at 14.00 and a draw at 6.50.
