Last weekend, the Red Devils came from behind to beat Tottenham 3-1 in London; Fred, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood scoring. This means Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side have now won four league matches in a row and are unbeaten in 11. Thus, Man United remain second, 11 points behind Manchester City but nine clear of fifth placed Chelsea. With top four all but secured, perhaps their focus can be on winning a trophy, namely the UEFA Europa League. On Thursday, they progressed to the semi-finals, beating Granada 2-0 in both legs, with Cavani and then an own goal seeing them win the second leg at home in midweek.
Manchester United could take another major stride towards securing Champions League football next season when they host Burnley at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon. The Red Devils are 14 places and 30 points better off than their visitors in the Premier League table, but have found the Clarets an unlikely bogey team on home turf in recent years. Sean Dyche’s side find themselves in the unlikely position to become just the second team in Premier League history to avoid defeat in five consecutive away games against Man United, with Chelsea from 1994 to 1998 the only other team to have achieved that feat.
Manchester United will look to continue an impressive recent run of results when Burnley visit Old Trafford for Sunday’s Premier League clash. The game will also represent an opportunity for the Reds to strengthen our hold on second place and cut the gap to leaders Manchester City at the top of the table. Last time we locked horns with the Clarets this season, Paul Pogba’s second-half strike ensured it was United who took all three points back home from Turf Moor. Another victory at the weekend would be our fifth consecutive win in all competitions.
