Manchester United will be under pressure this weekend when they face Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday night.

Erik ten Hag’s team enters the game knowing they must win. They haven’t won since a 3-2 victory over Nottingham Forest in August, and they’ve struggled recently.

The strain on a major club is always amplified, and a couple defeats at United means the club is currently in full-fledged disaster mode.

A win at Burnley on Saturday would undoubtedly relieve some of the strain, but three points are easier said than done.

The Belgian coach, who used to lead Manchester City, believes that the Dutch manager is more than capable of dealing with the problems that have arisen at Old Trafford.

“You always need time to adapt and improve – not just for Erik Ten Hag, but for all of us,” the Belgian told Shamoon Hafez, a journalist. “This manager has demonstrated that he is extremely capable.” There is no doubt about that.”

Ten Hag surely deserves to be praised. The Dutch manager has had to deal with some trying circumstances.

Ten Hag has certainly had challenges to deal with, whether it’s the Cristiano Ronaldo scenario, the Mason Greenwood situation, or the pretty public dispute with Jadon Sancho.

Are the United States in a crisis?
As previously stated, a loss or two, or three in a succession, is always a catastrophe at any major team, let alone Manchester United.

“When you’re at a top club, you’re always one loss away from a crisis,” Kompany said. “It doesn’t have to be United.”

A loss to Burnley would be disastrous, but a win would put things back on track.

United need a win somewhere, and a success against one of the favourites to be relegated would be a much-needed boost for Ten Hag and the Red Devils.
