Manchester United vs Burnley preview: Premier League prediction, tickets, TV, live stream, H2H, team news

Manchester United will look to get back to winning ways in the Premier League against Burnley at Old Trafford tonight.

The fifth-placed Reds - who could be without Marcus Rashford for up to three months due to a back injury - were defeated 2-0 by rivals and runaway leaders Liverpool at the weekend following back-to-back wins against Norwich and Wolves.

They will hope to close the gap on the top four by overcoming a Burnley side that ended a dismal run of four straight defeats with a surprise 2-1 win over Leicester at Turf Moor at the weekend.

Date: Wednesday, January 22, 2020

Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester

Kick-off time: 8:15pm GMT

Prediction: Man Utd 2-1 Burnley

Burnley's apparent descent into free-fall would have made this an easy fixture to predict before their impressive performance against Leicester, despite United's ongoing inconsistency.

However, that win will have no doubt boosted their confidence and they should be capable of giving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men a run for their money, particularly with the hosts stung by the loss of Rashford for the foreseeable future.

Narrow home victory.
