Manchester United will visit Turf Moor Stadium to take on struggling side, Burnley on January 20. Both the teams will face-off in the 24th round of the Premier League. United will look to grab all three points, whereas Burnley will look to get something out of the game.

As the host team, Burley is currently in the seventh spot and has managed to get only two points in their last five outings. A defeat against Man Utd this weekend could drag their position further down. Leicester is in the eighth position with 31 points - three points less than Burnley- and can take the seventh spot from Burnley.

Man Utd is so much on track after three straight draws in their last five Premier League meetings. They won against Everton and Stoke City after three consecutive draws. United’s second spot will also be at stake this weekend as Liverpool and Chelsea are trailing United with three points less.

What to expect

Both the teams will eye for getting something out of this fixture. Jose Mourinho, United boss, will definitely try to snatch all three points from the hosts. Man Utd couldn’t take all three points from Burnley in their last meeting as the game was ended at 2-2.

Jose and Co. are now pretty much in-form. Meanwhile, Burnley has lost their last two games in the Premier League. United will look to take advantage of Burnley’s down team-morale and take each portion of the three points.

Man Utd will also look to give an outstanding performance as they need more goal difference to keep the second spot safe from Liverpool and Chelsea. Sean Dyche, Burnley manager, will look to replicate their last performance against Jose’s team and claim at least one point on the home ground.
