Paul Merson has passed a vote of confidence in Manchester United, ahead of their visit to the Turf Morr Park on Sunday. Burnley were knockout of the Europa league in the week by Greek club Olympiakos. Their involvement in European activity have seen them struggle in domestic games.
Merson believes that stubborn Burnley will provide a lot of problems for Manchester United but backs the Red Devils to edge them out. He told Sky Sports: “Burnley’s form is all over the place. Manchester United will bounce back, I didn’t think played as badly on Monday night as a 3-0 defeat might suggest”. “At times they were good but to keep that up from the first 30 minutes was always going to be hard work when you’re not used to doing it”. “It’s not really the game either team want, Burnley will get the ball forward early and make it hard”. “It’s a tough game, but I expect Jose Mourinho to get it right.”
Manchester United have been plagued with both on and off the pitch crises with the supporter given Ed Woodward a vote of no confidence following their 3-0 hammering by Spurs on Monday. Mourinho have not been off the crises as his statements and comments have fuelled intense speculations.
Merson however expressed concerned for Burnley who are struggling for form. Merson said: “I worry for Burnley, I thought they’d be down there, and they haven’t really bought anyone and they’re not going to get some of the results they got last year.”
