Week 1 features a match on Tue Jan 12th, where Burnley will host Manchester United at Turf Moor in a clash of the Premier League. The game day is forecasted to be a cloudy and cold day, with daytime temperatures of only 0 degrees, so hopefuly the match makes up for the weather. Burnley sits at 16th place in the tables. In their last match they recorded a 1-0 shutout win against Sheffield United. Ben Mee struck first for Burnley in the 32nd minute on a feed from Robbie Brady, and that single goal was all that was necessary as neither team could manage any more scoring In the end, Sheffield United was frustrated by Burnley’s defence and couldn’t put any tallies on the board. Burnley ended the match with the shutout victory. Burnley is looking for direction having earned 15 points in their last 10 matches, while in their last match, 2nd placed Manchester United, recorded a 2-1 win against Aston Villa. Anthony Martial scored the first goal for Manchester United in the 40th minute, then Bertrand Traoré tied it up for Aston Villa in the 58th minute. Manchester United looks to continue their winning ways, having won 8 of their last 10.
This match will be the first time these two teams face eachother this season. Last season these teams were evenly matched with 1 win each.
Manchester United has been fortunate! In the last 5 matches, both Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes are on scoring streaks. They have each scored 4 goals for Manchester United and look to continue their dominance.. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Chris Wood are the top scorers for Burnley in the last 5 matches, but unfortunately they only have one goal.
Jóhann Guðmundsson is unavailable to play for Sean Dyche’s team, while Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s squad will be without Victor Lindelöf, Edinson Cavani, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones.
