Burnley FC

This is the Primership season’s first midweek games and we will see Burnley host the reigning Champions, Manchester United at Turf Moor. The newly promoted team will play their first premiership home game of the season and certainly be at its full capacity on Wednesday night. Manchester United will not have to travel far to Burnley and playing in front of a rare capacity of just 22,000 people.

Already in the second round of the Premiership, this will be a testing times for the Clarets as it doesn’t get any harder than the Champions coming around to Turf Moor. This game will mark their first home top flight game for 33 years and many of their supporters will spur them on to get that long awaited victory.  Coach Owen Coyle will need to get his men ready after their last weekend 2-0 defeat against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium. They were beaten by two first half set pieces and taught a harsh lesson in their Premier League debut. Coyle will have to work on the set pieces if they are to survive the Premiership and the Manchester United onslaught. It is most likely that he will recall the same starting eleven which played against Stoke.

Manchester United will travel to Turf Moor to face another promoted club from the Championship in a space of 4 days. Ferguson saw Rooney registering his 99th goal for Manchester United in the win against Birmingham and the win was never in doubt. Having defeated 1-0 against newly promoted Birmingham at Old Trafford in their first league game, Sir Alex Ferguson will want another victory to cement a good start to the season. The red devils might be without first choice centre backs Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand as they travel to Burnley. Although, this shouldn’t worry Ferguson too much as both Johnny Evans and John O’Shea proved their worth against Birmingham. 

The Premier League schedule has been kind to Manchester United and they could take full advantage by winning at Turf Moor. Manchester United might have lost C. Ronaldo in the close season but newly acquired Antonio Valencia has physically given more presence in the midfield. Burnley might have to learn the hard way by losing a game to gain experience. Manchester United got give Burnley a lesson to be remembered and Betsson is offering odds 1.30 for Manchester United win.
