Manchester United must quickly rise from the downturn they have experienced in the past two weeks, the chance to raise the confidence of the players came at matchdays-4, where Jose Mourinho’s squad will travel to Turf Moor stadium against host Burnley. The match will take place on Sunday night, 2 September 2018.
Burnley’s host certainly has the same mission, winning 3 points in the next game, apart from playing at home, in fact, they also only collect 1 point from the first three Premier League matches this season, due to a draw in the inaugural match against Southampton and swallow two defeats in the next game. In all of his last five games, Burnley has only won one.
On paper, it is clear that Manchester United are more favored to win in the match, because Jose Mourinho’s squad has taken 2 successive defeats in the last two league games, against Brighton and Hove Albion and against Tottenham Hotspur. Winning in the fight will lift the confidence of the Red Devils players.
