We all know about the critics Manchester United have had this season. They have been 6th in the Premier League
table for large periods and drawn far too many games.
Let's talk about the positives in Jose Mourinho's first season though. It is now
22 Premier League matches without defeat and this should be praised.
The Red Devils have won their last two matches too, including a fantastic 2-0 victory
over league leaders Chelsea last time out. It was the best performance of the season.
It's now the challenge to replicate this against Burnley in what is a much different, but
equally important fixture. Because of games in hand, their top four fate is in their own hands
and three points is a must ahead of next week's Manchester derby.
Standing in their way is a Burnley side that has just one win since January and still needs
positive results to avoid the drop.
Sitting eight points clear they are likely to be fine, but one more victory is perhaps needed
They might struggle to get this against an organised, fluid and confident Manchester United side though. We're backing
the visitors to grind this one out, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the way.
