“I’m sure Sean Dyche will be looking for some new faces for the club in January, especially since they’ve got a number of games on their hands. They’ll go to Old Trafford and try to disappoint United, hold on. close match However, I worry about the lack of quality in this respect.”
Manchester United are currently 7th in the Premier League table, 7 points behind Arsenal in 4th place with Mikel Arteta’s team 2 games left. A win over Burnley will help them move up to 6th place, Tottenham in the table.
