Betting tips for Burnley vs Manchester United 02.09.2018
Manchester United are under great pressure and a visit to Turf Moor is often not ideal for gaining confidence. However, Burnley FC's European dream fizzled out in smoke on Thursday and disillusionment could have a negative impact on the spirit of Sean Dyche's side. Mourinho, this, is on the verge of a nervous breakdown, and needs the results to begin to seem. For yesterday, as they say.
Burnley FC had a dream of being able to compete in the Europa League this season but Olympiakos was an insurmountable obstacle. After losing 3-1 in Greece, Sean Dyche's men could not do better than a home draw, clearly insufficient to counter the margin that the Hellenic formation had built. Daniel Podence was the Olympiakos service scorer, who did not even need it, and Matej Vydra still reduced a few minutes later but the tie was already decided.
Now, this is probably not a great consolation, but the experience is invaluable for a near and, hopefully, more fruitful return to European competition. This door is closed for this season, it's time for Burnley to focus on the Premier League without further delays or slips.
Sean Dyche's squad had only one point in the first three rounds - a draw at Southampton (0-0) - and came from two consecutive defeats with Watford (1-3) and Fulham (4-2). The English coach made Turf Moor a stadium where visitors felt uncomfortable and it is a long time to re-explore this lode. It remains to be seen how much the disappointment with the departure of the Europa League and some physical strain can not affect the ability of the Clarets to fight for the reception of the Red Devils.
Dyche can not count on Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Steven Defour, Nick Pope and Robbie Brady, all recovering from injuries.
Negative results puts Pedro Leagueram Manchester United under heavy pressure and the visit to Turf Moor is not the best occasion to shake. The Red Devils won the opening game against Leicester City (2-1) but have since added two consecutive and problematic defeats for different reasons. The first was on the move to Brighton (3-2) and, with all due respect for Hughton's competent lineup, is not exactly where a title contender is expected to leave all three points. And last weekend United were beaten at Old Trafford (0-3) by the Spurs, a heavy result that results from a poor showing of the home men. They immediately began comparisons between the coaches, with many suggesting that Manchester United should have spent their handsome money hiring the Argentinian rather than the Portuguese, which does not seem to be an option for the future. They spoke of Jose Mourinho as being old and buried, which caused that this one came to the press conference to demand respect for the trophy that carries in the curriculum. Although Mourinho's indignation is understood, the fact that he has to be indignant with such vehemence is symptomatic in itself.
Undeniable is that Man United plays poorly, there is no big game and the coach himself does not seem to have an eleven or a preferential scheme in which to rely to score points.
PhilJones had to be replaced against Tottenham with muscle complaints, and is in doubt. Marcos Rojo, Diogo Dalot and Sergio Romero are in the final stages of injury but still gaining physical form.
