Manchester United – Ole eyeing up fifth straight league success?

With long-time leaders Man City pre-occupied at Wembley this weekend with the semi-finals of the FA Cup, an opportunity presents itself for Man Utd (W18 D9 L4) to reduce the gap on the Premier League summit to eight points. In simple terms, three defeats in the remaining six matches for City, coupled with a flawless end to the campaign for United, and the latter would be celebrating league title number 21 next month.

As slim a prospect as this ultimately is, all Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his team can do is keep on applying pressure. The only way that is possible is by continually winning, something they have rediscovered a taste for. Last week’s resounding 3-1 success at Tottenham was their fourth on the spin in the league – last enjoying a longer such run when winning the first six league games under the Norwegian in January 2019.

Remarkably, United have never completed a league double over Sunday’s opponent. An alarming statistic having won 2-0 at Turf Moor in January. Moreover, Burnley have proven more than worthy adversaries at Old Trafford: the Clarets avoiding defeat on all four recent visits. Therefore the three points are by no means a given, three days on from easing into the last four of the Europa League.

Burnley – Quick-starting Clarets struggling to keep noses in front?

For the first time since 2009, Burnley (W8 D9 L14) have lost successive Premier League games despite scoring the opening goal in each. Having previously surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 away at Southampton, a side that hadn’t won any of its previous five home league games, the Clarets were then beaten 2-1 at Turf Moor by Newcastle, who secured their first win in the top-flight in eight matches.

Those results mean they are not yet assured of another season in England’s top division, still seven points above the relegation zone in 16th. It means we can expect another committed performance at Old Trafford on Sunday, a ground they are unbeaten on their last four visits (W1 D3). Meanwhile, Burnley have now scored in the first-half in each of their past five Premier League games, netting the opener in all but one.

Despite these lightning quick starts, Sean Dyche knows his team are labouring towards survival. Burnley have now won one league game in eight – a fine display in a 2-1 win at Everton before last month’s international break – and only twice since claiming back-to-back wins in January (D5 L5), when following up a memorable victory at Anfield against Liverpool by coming from behind to beat Aston Villa.

Manchester United Vs Burnley Betting Advice

Opposing Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s team hasn’t been a profitable venture for me recently. This is because Manchester United are enjoying their finest spell since December, with four straight league wins coinciding nicely with progress in the Europa League. Surprisingly, Solskjaer opted for a strong team for Thursday’s 2-0 win here over Granada, despite holding a commanding 2-0 lead from the fixture in Spain.
