Michael Owen has given his prediction on Sunday’s Premier League clash between Manchester United and Burnley.
The Red Devils are currently sitting in 2nd place in the league table and will be looking to celebrate another win in order to get closer to the leaders of the race, Manchester City, with their points. Meanwhile, the Clarets are 16th on the list, near the relegation zone.
And speaking about the upcoming clash, Owen has backed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side to beat the rivals with a score of 2 – 0.
“Despite going a goal down, Manchester United produced another memorable victory on the road last weekend, defeating Spurs 2-0,” the pundit said.
“It was a typical United performance, and although I still think there is room for improvement at Old Trafford, the visit of Burnley should present itself as another opportunity to gain maximum points.
“The Clarets simply aren’t scoring enough goals and if it wasn’t for the poor form of those in and around them, their concerns of falling out the Premier League would be a real possibility.
“As I mentioned, United have been much better on the road, but on this occasion, I think they’ll come away with all three points.”
