Manchester Utd vs Burnley Premier League Live Football Score 12 Jan 2021
Manchester United will head to Burnley on Tuesday night knowing that a point against the Clarets would move them above Liverpool to the top of the Premier League table.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are currently second in the division, level on 33 points with the reigning champions, while Burnley occupy 16th, having picked up 16 points from their 15 matches in 2020-21
Burnley will enter Tuesday’s contest in good form, having won three of their last four matches in all competitions, including a 1-0 victory over Sheffield United in their last league game on December 29.
Sean Dyche’s side were due to face Fulham on January 3, but a coronavirus outbreak in the London club’s squad meant that the fixture had to be postponed.
The Clarets were in FA Cup action against MK Dons on Saturday, though, and needed penalties to overcome the League One outfit after a 1-1 draw; Burnley were actually heading for a surprise defeat on home soil, only for Matej Vydra to come up with a 94th-minute leveller, forcing extra time in the process.
Dyche’s team have picked up 16 points from their 15 league matches this season to sit 16th in the table, five points clear of the relegation zone; they have won three of their last four Premier League fixtures at Turf Moor, meanwhile, overcoming Crystal Palace, Wolves and Sheffield United.
Goals have been a real issue for the club during the 2020-21 campaign, though, with just nine scored in their 15 league matches, which is the second-worst record in the division behind Sheffield United.
