Manchester United have not had the best of starts to the season, and will head into this match on the back of a 4-3 defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich. Ten Hag will expect a strong response from his side after having also lost three of their previous four Premier League games. Meanwhile, Vincent Kompany has struggled to adapt to Premier League management thus far, and this could well end up being another night to forget for the newly promoted side.

Statistics for Burnley vs Manchester United

Burnley’s start to the Premier League couldn’t be going much worse so far, after three straight losses followed by a draw away to Forest last weekend. Burnley also currently have the joint worst goal difference in the league with -8 after conceding 12 goals and scoring just four. Despite Manchester United having a rocky start themselves, it’s hard to see how Burnley will turn things around this weekend.

Manchester United head into this one off the back of three straight defeats in all competitions. With two wins, three losses, six goals scored and ten conceded, it’s a pretty poor start for a side that managed to secure its top targets in the summer window. That being said, it still feels like United will prove to be too much for Burnley on the day.
