Manchester United: What a roller coaster United is. One day, they can’t even compete with a really poor Watford side, and then they explode in attack to score four goals. Then there was the time they barely beat a team from Kazakhstan, only to then go on to beat both Tottenham and Manchester City. Based on how things have gone, this is a match United isn’t expected to win, but if they do, they’ll firmly be in the fight for European spots.
Burnley: Middle of the road and six points from safety, this is a team that probably won’t get relegated by season’s end, especially considering there are eight teams in a worse spot than them. But they don’t want to leave anything to chance and are only a point away from being in the top half of the table. To get there, the defense has to keep going. The club enters having won two of its last three, but the defense has come to life, conceding just once in the last three games after allowing nine to Man. City and Tottenham in back-to-back games.
United fails to build on its big win over Newcastle by dropping points on the road. Pick: Manchester United 1, Burnley 1
