Manchester United would be hoping to get back to winning ways when they entertain Burnley at home in the last game from the current set of Premier League matches scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week. The Red Devils take on Burnley at Old Trafford on Thursday night with the target of getting a win on the back of the disappointing 1-1 draw at the home of Newcastle United in their last league game on Monday night.


Manchester United were very fortunate to come out of the Newcastle United game with a draw as their hosts were denied on several occasions by David De Gea. The Spaniard made several saves in the Manchester United goal shortly after French winger Allan Saint-Maximin had given Newcastle United an early lead in the first half. The Red Devils stole a point in the second half when Uruguayan international striker EdinsonCavani came off the bench to scorethe lone goal for his team. Manchester United were favourites for the Newcastle United clash according to the various soccer betting odds from soccer betting sites but they could not make it count as the two teams settled for a point apiece. The Red Devils are also the favourites for the Burnley game just like what’s obtainable with the Magpies match according to the soccer betting odds from several soccer betting sites.

Ahead of the Burnley game, Manchester United have the opportunity to close the gap on the top four teams with a win. The Red Devils can move within four points of Arsenal in fourth place if they beat the opponents. On their part, Burnley can move out of the relegation zone with a win at the Theatre of Dreams.

Interim Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick has a record of two wins and two draws from four games in all competitions ahead of the Burnley game.
