Manchester United vs Burnley: TV channel, stream, kick-off time, odds & match preview

Jose Mourinho's Red Devils are performing below the level required and they will have to up their game against a high-flying Clarets team

Manchester United will be desperate to return to winning ways when they welcome local rivals Burnley to Old Trafford on Boxing Day.

The Red Devils were knocked out of the Carabao Cup at the quarter-final stage by Bristol City thanks to a 90th-minute goal last week before surrendering a lead in the last minute against Leicester City prior to Christmas.

Jose Mourinho branded his players 'childish' following their late concession against the Foxes and the Portuguese will no doubt be demanding a much more ruthless display on Tuesday afternoon.

GAME PREVIEW


Jose Mourinho Manchester United

As they drift further away from league leaders Manchester City, Man United find themselves looking over their shoulders at the chasing pack, knowing that they cannot afford to slip up.

Mourinho's side fell 13 points behind City on Saturday and their title aspirations have all but evaporated, but a top-four finish remains imperative for the Red Devils.

Having hit yet another rocky patch of form, they will have to pick up the pace once more, with Chelsea breathing down their necks and the likes of Liverpool not far behind.

However, it will not be easy as they welcome local rivals Burnley to Old Trafford, especially considering the Clarets' impressive form this season, which has them defying expectations and sitting seventh in the table.

Dyche's men have already beaten Chelsea, as well as forcing away draws against Tottenham and Liverpool this season, so they will be confident of upsetting the odds once more.
