How Cristiano Ronaldo can secure Manchester United spot in record books vs Burnley
Cristiano Ronaldo can help Manchester United etch their name into the record books on Tuesday evening.
Manchester United will face off with Burnley on Tuesday at 8 pm UK time. The tie is a Premier League clash and a must-win for the Red Devils.
Man United are 4th in the Premier League right now, but both Arsenal and Tottenham can overtake them and knock them out of the Champions League places by winning games in hand.
And with a much tougher set of games to come for the Red Devils, they really need to pick up three points vs a struggling Burnley.
Sean Dyche’s side are currently sat dead bottom of the Premier League with 19 games played. They have won just one league game all season and have scored just 16 goals – the lowest in the division right now.
However, the Clarets could escape the relegation zone if they win their games in hand.

Cristiano Ronaldo can secure Manchester United spot in record books
Ahead of the game, it has been revealed that Manchester United could find themselves in the record books.
As per talkSPORT, vs Burnley, CR7 could become the third player aged 37 or above to score a Premier League goal for Manchester United, following on from Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes.
And if that does happen, Manchester United will become the third team to have three players aged over 37 to score for them in the Premier League, following on from Blackburn Rovers (Kevin Moran, Mark Hughes, Tugay) and Bolton Wanderers (Gudni Bergsson, Les Ferdinand, Gary Speed).
However, Ronaldo scoring vs Burnley may not be as nailed-on as it sounds.
The Portuguese has not scored a Premier League goal since the 30th of December 2021 which, ironically, was against Burnley.
