Ole Solskjaer speaks ahead of his side’s clash against Burnley

Manchester United host Burnley at Old Trafford as they aim to further bridge the gap between them and the top 4 sides

Manchester United have been a side reborn ever since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho at the helm of the club. The Red Devils have won all 8 of their games across all competitions that the former United forward has overseen. 6 of these have come in the Premier League and have thereby made genuine contenders for a top 4 finish and qualification for next season’s Champions League. United have scored 8 goals during this run and have conceded just 5. Under the guidance of Solskjaer, they already have some big scalps to their name in the form of Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.

The Red Devils will be aiming to make it 9 in a row as they welcome Burnley who are languishing in the 15th spot. Manchester united, on the other hand, are 6th with 44 points (level with Arsenal who are ahead on goal difference). They trail 5th placed Chelsea by just 4 points. And while Burnley have won 3 of their last 4 premier league games, United will be fully expected to get the better of them at old Trafford. Manchester united boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke anout their opponents ahead of tonight’s clash,

“Well, I think he [Sean Dyche] was thinking more about Tuesday night and getting through to that game with no injuries, and having fresh legs before he comes to Old Trafford. I enjoyed the day out, watching a game of football, but we know it’s going to be a tough game against Burnley. We know what we’re up against – they’ve turned a corner a little bit because their results have picked up and maybe they saw an away game against City as a chance to give someone else a run in the team. I didn’t get too much information about them, I felt.”

“As much as [Arsenal or Tottenham] because every game you prepare the same. I think the analysis team, Kieran [McKenna] and Michael [Carrick] are doing a fantastic job preparing for every single game. We’ve got a great team behind the team and, of course, they’ve got the job of looking at Burnley. I wanted to see them myself, just because there are always one or two things that you can spot that you can work on.“

Author’s take

While Burnley have been in good form lately, it does seem unlikely that they will be able to stop Solskjaer’s rampaging Manchester United side.
