Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Burnley will look to escape the relegation zone when they take on struggling Manchester United in the Premier League round 6. The Clarets won their first point of the season thanks to a 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest on Monday, but they face a difficult task against the EPL powerhouse. Since key attacker Lyle Foster is banned for the match, home win should not be considered.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, are eager to make amends for back-to-back losses to Arsenal and Brighton and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Both Jadon Sancho and Antony are suspended, while the likes of Raphael Varane, Luke Shaw, Mason Mount, and summer signing Sofyan Amrabat should miss out with injuries. A man to watch in the away team will be Marcus Rashford, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line.
Highlighted Player (Bruno Fernandes):
Bruno Fernandes is a Portuguese footballer who used to play for Novara before joining Udinese in a co-ownership deal in the summer of 2013. The Portuguese midfielder scored his first goal for the club in a 3-3 draw with Napoli on 7 December, 2013.
Three years later he signed a deal with Sampdoria for a fee of €7 million. Fernandes moved to Sampdoria in order to replace Roberto who reinforced Villarreal. Soriano He played 33 games for the Zebrette in the 2015/2016 Serie A campaign, scoring three goals for the club, while providing four assists for his teammates.
Fernandes is a central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as a secondary striker as well. He was born in Maia, Portugal on 8 September, 1994 and he began his youth career at Infesta. Fernandes has seven caps for Portugal U21 team and he has played 4 matches for the U23 team.
Highlighted Team (Burnley):
Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since.
Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season.
Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.
