Watch Manchester United vs Burnley Live match and Goal Highlights
Hello and welcome to live coverage of Manchester United v Burnley at Old Trafford. It’s the final part of what nobody is calling the Dropzone Trilogy.
United struggled to beat 20th-placed Norwich before Christmas, really struggled to draw against 19th-placed Newcastle on Monday, and I won’t insult your intelligence by telling you where Burnley are in the league.
We’re hardwired to perceive Manchester United v Burnley as a home banker. It isn’t, not the way United are playing, and it hasn’t been for a while. Burnley have drawn three and won one of their last five games at Old Trafford. Even when they lost 3-1 on Super League Day in April, they were level after 83 minutes.
