Manchester United lost another home match. It was an impressive performance from Burnley, and the team could prove that they are playing better football than The Red Devils.
Without Rashford, the team can’t score the goal
English pundits believe that Manchester United is worth nothing without Marcus Rashford. If we take a look at the latest successful matches of Manchester, then Rashford seems irreplaceable. Marcus scored many goals this season, and in the absence of Paul Pogba, the youngster became the leader of the team. Manchester United lost two consecutive matches without Marcus. On Sunday, Manchester lost the game against Liverpool, and on Wednesday, The Red Devils lost a home match against Burnley.
Another chance, to get close to Champions League zone, wasted
Manchester United wasted another opportunity to get in the Champions League zone. Keep in mind that Chelsea in the fourth team in the Premier League. Frank Lampard’s side lost the match on Saturday and could not win the home match on Tuesday. It means that Chelsea lost five points in two rounds. Unfortunately for Manchester fans, the team could not get any close to Chelsea. Manchester lost both matches, so it gave a chance for Chelsea to go ahead with one more point.
Burnley is way better than Manchester United in conversion
Manchester United can’t convert regular shots on target into the goal. The Red Devils had seven shots on target but could not score any of them. At the same time, Burnley had only two shots on target, and both were successful. Dyche’s team had a 100% successful rate regarding converting chances into goals.
Martial has few moments where French could score the goal, but he was unsuccessful. Without Marcus, Martial seems lost. Combinations make no sense as the ball can’t reach forward at the right time. Two leading players are injured, but Manchester is the team that should not lose the home match against Burnley. As of now, Manchester United has only 34 points, while Burnley now has 30 points. If Manchester keeps losing points like this, Chelsea will get Champions League spot in the next few rounds.
