The Red Devils suffered disastrous 3-0 result at home to Tottenham last time out and now travel to Burnley on Sunday
It may only be the fourth round of the new FA Premier League season, but the pressure would already appear to be mounting on beleaguered Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho. United have lost two of their first three games, making it their worst start to a league season since 1992, and three points away to Burnley on Sunday (2 September) is an absolute must.

Where should I be investing my money?
Another manager under pressure is Southampton boss Mark Hughes. The Saints are yet to win so far this season, have collected just a single point and travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.
Palace have not made the best start themselves, winning one and losing their other two matches, and both teams could go for broke this weekend. None of the last 18 matches, across all competitions, between these two has ended in a draw, so the likelihood of seeing a result is great.
And Southampton can take heart from the fact that they have won on four of their last six visits to Selhurst Park. They are in desperate need of three points here but come in as the underdogs.
You can more than double your money by backing Palace to take the points at 2.00, while Southampton are at over double that price at 4.20. A narrow, 1-0 win for Crystal Palace is priced at 7.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$35 pay out, according to the Oddsshark site.
Brighton and Fulham look to kick start season
Brighton welcome Fulham to the Amex Stadium this Saturday with both looking for a kick start to their respective Premier League campaigns. Brighton have lost two of their first three games although they did manage to beat Manchester United 3-2 in their last home game.
Fulham, meanwhile, look to be building momentum after a slow start to the season. Having lost their opening two games, they beat Burnley 4-2 in their last league outing and eliminated Exeter with a 2-0 win in the League Cup.
Brighton however have won five of their last six matches against Fulham and will be confident of three more points in front of their own fans. And it is the Seagulls who come in as favourites to take all three points at a price of 2.30.
Fulham, by way of comparison, are at 3.40 to pick up a third win in a row. A draw is at the same price, but with home advantage and their excellent recent record against the London club, Brighton should take the points in this one.
A 2-1 win for the Seagulls is priced at 10.00, offering a ten-fold return on any investment. Over 2.5 goals in the game is at 1.90, while both teams to score is at 1.70.
United need three points at Turf Moor
And finally, Manchester United are in desperate need of three points at Burnley if they are to mount any sort of title challenge and avoid falling further behind early season pace setters Liverpool. Initially one of the favourites for the crown, two defeats in their opening three games has seen United’s price to win the title rocket to 51.00.
Burnley however have made a poor start of their own and are yet to win in three games, and have already conceded seven goals at a rate of 2.33 goals per game. Having finished seventh last season, the Lancashire club are now at just 2.62 to suffer relegation to the Championship – only Cardiff and Huddersfield are at shorter odds.
And it is United who come into the game as favourites to get their second league win of the season under their belts. The red Devils are at just 1.70 to take the points at Turf Moor, while Burnley are out at 6.00 to record their first win of the season.
A comfortable, 2-0 win for United is priced at 7.50. Meanwhile, you could also more than double your money by backing United to win to nil (without Burnley scoring a goal) at a price of 2.50.
