Michael Owen states his prediction for Man United v Burnley

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was pleased with how well his side competed during their defeat to Liverpool on Sunday afternoon as United were right in the game until Mohamed Salah scored a late second to seal a 2-0 win at Anfield. The home fans booed their team off the pitch and chanted negative sentiments toward United's American ownership, the Glazer family.

Former England and Arsenal striker Ian Wright said this week that Solskjaer, under intense pressure to improve the club's fortunes, prioritised his own needs over those of his player.

"Some of these have probably played more than they should have and expected, more mentally than physically".

Manchester United suffered a humbling defeat at the hands of Liverpool during the weekend and Ole's men will be eager to get back to winning ways during the week but it looks like the manager could have had another injury setback in the form of Victor Lindelof.

We're looking to the next game against Burnley.

Open. "I've played him two other times, once in Brisbane (2015), I nearly lost that one too, and also in Halle (2019)". Next up for Federer will be a meeting against local hope John Millman , who beat him in four sets at the 2018 U.S.


United are without key players such as Marcus Rashford, Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba through injury at the moment, but Wednesday's display laid the squad's shortcomings bare. "Juan will have to step up again, so there will be more chances for the ones we've got in the squad". Of course, we want to win, we're disappointed we didn't.

"I think everyone can see that these players are being stretched". Today we didn't get the first goal and that took lots of the belief out of us and you've got to say Burnley do make it hard to play against them then.

"Burnley have failed to score in the first 45 minutes of their last 11 league games, but they came from behind to pick up maximum points against Leicester at Turf Moor on Sunday in a second-half performance which was characteristic of the side that Sean Dyche has built - honest, energetic and passionate".

"I always put the team and the club before anything else". He's been fantastic all season for us and now, unfortunately, we have to do without him.
