The Game-Week 24 of the Premier League will kick off on Wednesday, 9th February. The GW will continue throughout the midweek, with Burnley taking on Manchester United on Wednesday, 9th February at 1:30 AM IST. The fixture will take place at Turf Moor and hence, will be an away game for the Red Devils.

Burnley are currently sitting last in the PL and are coming off a close 0-0 draw against Watford. With multiple games in hand, the Clarets will be very busy during the final stages of the competition as they look to make a comeback. Manager Sean Dyche will look to make decent chemistry with his returning players and new signings.

On the other hand, Manchester United grabbed 4th place once again after a hard-fought 1-0 victory over West Ham United. However, an unlucky exit from the FA Cup via the hands of Middlesbrough is surely to affect the team’s morale. Manager Ralf Rangncik will have a task at hand to regather his players, as they look forward to renewing their name.

The Clarets will continue to be without Matej Vydra and Johann Berg Gudmundsson, while Ashley Barnes and Charlie Taylor remain doubtful.
