      Burnley vs Derby County Predictions

       

      Burnley have made an excellent start to 2016 with some of their best performances of the season so far. They picked up 3 excellent away wins in the space of 7 days by knocking out Middlesbrough in the FA Cup prior to a 5-0 win at MK Dons and 3-1 win at Brentford in the league.

      Those results have helped propel Burnley back up to 4th place and they are now only a point behind Monday night’s opponents Derby. The quality of their goals at Brentford was exceptional with Scott Arfield and Joey Barton both scoring with brilliant long-range strikes and it was the sign of a settled side playing with real confidence.

      Derby by contrast have hit a real sticky patch and come into this match after their worst showing of the season when they were crushed 3-0 at home by Birmingham last weekend. They’ve slipped out of the automatic promotion positions having only picked up 2 points from their last 4 in the league and with the sides around them all in good form that is a big worry.

      The Rams have quite a big squad for a side in this league but Paul Clement still looks as though he isn’t quite sure what his best side is. New signing Nick Blackman has started their last 3 matches up front but is yet to score for Derby after a prolific start to the campaign at Reading.

      Derby need to turn this slump around swiftly if they are to remain strong contenders for automatic promotion but Turf Moor isn’t the easiest place to do that and a confident Burnley side that is playing some great football look good value at 8/11 in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market.

      As well as scoring goals, they have kept clean sheets in their last 3 home matches and are worth a punt at 10/1 to secure a 2-0 win here.
