Manchester United hosted Burnley this week, just days after the draw at Newcastle.
United had Boxing Day this year, but drew 1-1 with struggling Newcastle United at St James’s Park the next day, while the Clarets have not played since 12 December due to the Covid outbreak in opposition camps.
United had 16 days off before the Newcastle draw and captain Harry Maguire said the long break in December was the reason for the players’ poor performance.
The England international told ManUtd.com: “Any 16-day break in the middle of the football season is not going to help you.
“The training ground has been closed and half the kids playing today are recovering from the virus, so of course it’s not going to help us.
“We have people with symptoms, people without symptoms, it’s been a real mixed bag for everyone at the football club and it’s been a tough time.
“But you can’t make excuses for sloppy passes and the opportunities we have, especially in the first half.”
