Our football match prediction:
Thanks to Juan Mata’s goals Manchester United were on the verge of beating Leicester City at King Power Stadium, but the Foxes eventually scored a late equalizer and picked up one point from the game. As things stand now, the Red Devils are unlikely to win the Premier League title and, no doubt, the team’s main goal is to book a place in the Champions League. Manchester United have been impressive at their Old Trafford this season and it is no surprise they are seen as hot favourites to win Tuesday’s football match against Burnley. The Clarets head into the Boxing Day fixture following a 3-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur and seeing that coach Sean Dyche has a number of selection worries, the visitors are unlikely to spoil Man Utd’s party at the “Theatre of Dreams”. In their last meeting in the English top flight Man Utd recorded a 2-0 win over Burnley.
Highlighted Player (Antonio Valencia):
Antonio Valencia is a versatile right winger who plays for English Premier League club Manchester United. The 30-year-old is often deployed as a right-back too, both at the club and international level. Valencia was a first team regular at El Nacional after rising swiftly through the youth ranks. He would then move to Spanish side Villarreal whose time at the club was spent on loans to Recreativo and Wigan Athletic. After impressing for them on loan, Wigan Athletic signed Valencia permanently in 2008. His performance for them soon attracted interest from several high profile clubs and Valencia eventually signed for Manchester United. He was touted as a replacement to Cristiano Ronaldo at Old Trafford and would go on to win many titles with them. Valencia made his national debut in 2005 and represented in two FIFA World Cups and as many Copa America. He has won 80 caps for his nation and scored eight goals so far.
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.
