Burnley vs Manchester United Forest at Turf Moor is a game that the Red Devils should win. Before the kickoff, here are some things you need to know.

Manchester United are having one of the most horrible starts to the season. They have lost three out of their first 5 games of the season. Burnley, on the other hand, have had a similar start to the season. After getting promoted to the Premier League, they lost three of their first 4 games of this season. So, when they take on Manchester United this weekend at Turf Moor, it is expected that they should be registering their fourth defeat. However, with the kind of form United are in, Burnley could cause an upset and might register their first win at Turf Moor against the Red Devils since 2009.

Only 1 win in 15 games for Burney vs Man United

Burnley don’t have a good record against Manchester United. The last time they beat Man United was at Old Trafford where they won 2-0 in January 2020. That was their only win against the Red Devils in the last 15 meetings between the two sides.

Manchester United last lost at Turf Moor in 2009

Yes, Manchester United have lost at Turf Moor and that was in 2009. However, in the last seven visits from the Red Devils, they are unbeaten here by winning 5 and drawing just 2. So, United fans should feel positive about this game even if they are playing away and their away form is horrendous.

Man Utd lost only one of the last 24 PL games against promoted teams

Man Utd do have a great record against sides that are promoted to the Premier League. They lost just once out of the last 24 games. However, the last game they lost against a promoted team was in 2021 at Watford. It proved to be the last game for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Man Utd manager.
