Burnley v Manchester United Premier League Preview, 20th January 3.00pm
The Clarets are running through a difficult patch of form at the moment as the wins have totally dried up for them. The Clarets are winless in six now and their home form has taken a turn for the worse with back to back losses there. Manchester United have been solid enough to suggest that they can go and chase down three points in this one despite being given a real scare by Burnley at Old Trafford recently. Man Utd are 8/13 at William Hill to get the win, with the draw at 13/5 and Burnley are at 5/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 15th, 2018 at 9:03 p.m.)
Burnley News and Form
The Clarets have posted a W5 D2 L4 record on home soil this season and they have lost their last two at home, having gone down against Spurs and Liverpool. They are just having a tough time of things at the moment with a six-match winless streak of form that they are on right now, having lost their last two, both one-goal margin defeats. They need some improved fortunes at the moment and this is probably going to be a game which goes under 2.5 goals. Burnley have scored eight and conceded eight goals at home so far this season and just 36% of their games at Turf Moor this season have gone over 1.5 goals. 75% of the goals that they have conceded this season at home have been in the second half of matches, so there may be a bit of value in a half-time draw at William Hill. They are going to have dig deep now to turn this form around, but they may take some heart from their 2-2 draw at Old Trafford recently, but they couldn’t hold on to a strong 2-0 lead that they had played their way into.
Manchester United News and Form
Manchester United eased their way to a 3-0 victory over Stoke on Monday night and that took their unbeaten streak of form out to seven matches in the top flight now (W4 D3) and they go into this one with back to back wins under their belt having scored five unanswered goals across wins over Everton and Stroke. The Red Devils have gone W4 D1 in their last five away games now and they have scored at least two goals in each of those games as well, so in the William Hill correct score market a Manchester United 2-0 option may have decent enough appeal. The Red Devils have not conceded in any of their last three league outings now and away from Old Trafford, they have averaged 1.9 goals per game going forward. They have taken a clean sheet in 36% of their away fixtures this season while they have scored in 82% of their road games. Their away form is there at the moment to suggest that they can get something out of this trip to Burnley and they now have the joint-best defence in the Premier League at the moment alongside Chelsea and only Man City have earned more away points than Manchester United have done in the top flight this season. Anthony Martial has scored in United’s last two games and is worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market.
Burnley v Manchester United Head to Head
That thrilling 2-2 draw between these two at Old Trafford recently leaves Manchester United unbeaten in their last six Premier League games against the Clarets, winning three of those. They took a 2-0 win in last season’s corresponding fixture and the Red Devils have taken a clean sheet in four of their last six league outings against the Clarets. Each of the last four games between them at Turf Moor have seen less than three goals.
Who will win – Burnley v Manchester United Predictions
Manchester United are the value option to go out and win this Turf Moor clash with a clean sheet in tow as well. They have not had any problems in picking up points on the road recently and even though they aren’t playing particularly well, they can pick off a Burnley side which has just lost its way. United to win to nil.
