Match Prediction for Manchester United vs Burnley:
Vincent Kompany’s side thought they had taken a late lead against Nottingham Forest on Monday evening, but a VAR decision saw them settle for a point. Despite heading into this one after three consecutive defeats, United should take the points in what is sure to be a close contest, which would ease the increasing pressure on manager Ten Hag following four defeats in their opening six games of the season. Burnley will look to get a point atleast against a better looking side.
Prediction: Burnley 1-3 Manchester United
