Burnley vs Manchester United Prediction & Betting tips
Much has been speculated all week that if United, who had not suffered 2 defeats in the first 3 days, dismissed Mourinho if he fell in Burnley on Sunday.
Even, as often happens in these cases, suspicions arise with that if this or the other player are playing expressly “at idle” with the intention of “brushing” the Portuguese. With the added elment that the defeat 0-3 against Tottenham of the 1st round is the most bulky at home of a team trained by Mourinho since he is dedicated to this.
In my opinion, and although in truth the team is playing fatal, (the teams of Mourinho have never been a crucible of good game nor will be) it seems excessive to draw such conclusions after 3 league days and without having started any other official competition .
I do not see how logical that members of the squad can be doing, because a bad league start hurts them professionally almost as much as Mourinho. And it can even affect anyone in being called or not being selected for the next stop in September selections.
I think the visit to Burnley is a good opportunity to break this dynamic. After United have only won the return to work the friendly against Real Madrid (2-1) and the 1st day of league against Leicester City (2-1).
Starting from that obviously the template differences are abysmal. Among the United that has spent more than 480 million euros since Mourinho landed and Burnley is a modest although he achieved a European place last season.
This season has not made such a huge expense United, as the bulk of the signings of flashlight had done in the previous seasons of Mourinho, with the Lindeloff, Bailly, Pogba, Alexis, or Darmian.
But still they are not to despise the incorporations this summer of the Portuguese Dalot in the defense and the Brazilian Fred in the midfield.
Anyway, in my opinion, the best signing of United since the departure of Ferguson has been to get De Gea not removed in goal.
In addition precisely Burnley has just received a mental blow from the hard. Because just a few minutes ago the second leg of the last round of the UEFA Europa League was over, and the 1-1 at Burnley against Olympiakos leaves Burnley with honey after the 3-1 defeat of Piraeus.
While of course there was the strongest team in the competition that Burnley and almost nobody should dream of in the club or reach the 1/4 final, I think the dream of being able to play the elite group stage was in the mint of the entire staff as a difficult but achievable goal.
Also in the first days of league it seems that Burnley has accused the efforts of playing 2 games per week.
Because after tying 0-0 in Southampton field in the first day has fallen at home 1-3 to Watford in the 2nd and 4-2 at Fulham field in the 3rd.
