Reason For Burnley vs Manchester United Predictions

  • United have won eight of their last 10 league games (D2)
  • The Red Devils have won six of seven league trips this season
  • United have conceded in all of their away league games this term
  • Burnley have scored in four successive Premier League home games

Two form sides

Manchester United’s great form has been trumpeted around lately, but what is surprising is that this is an encounter between two of the division’s in-form teams.

The Red Devils sit top of the form table across the last eight matches (W6 D2) but they aren’t too far above Burnley. The Clarets have the fifth-best record in that time (W4 D2 L2) and that should make this a real test for United.

United storming ahead of title-decider

These two may be flying in the form table, but United’s real top-of-the-table clash is Sunday’s visit to Anfield. The Red Devils can head into that in top spot if they win this one, thanks to some stellar form.

United have gone 10 games unbeaten in the top-flight and they’ve won eight of those. That fantastic form has been helped by a stellar season on the road, with the Red Devils claiming six wins from seven on their travels, only slipping up in a Boxing Day draw at Leicester. We see United continuing that form in our predictions here.

Back goals at Turf Moor

Burnley may not be the go-to Premier League side for entertainment, but that was before the United circus rolled into town. For all their good results this season, United’s away trips have been wide open. The Red Devils have seen over 3.5 goals in 100% of their league trips, failing to keep a clean sheet on the road this season. On the plus side, United have scored 21 times in seven trips.

Burnley have scored in their last four at home and they should be able to take advantage of a United side who are set to miss four centre-halves and their starting left-back. We expect another open game, so we’re backing a United win with both teams scoring alongside a 3-1 correct score prediction.

Burnley injuries and team news

The Clarets have no players ruled out for this clash, but they do have doubts over Charlie Taylor, Dwight McNeil and Jay Rodriguez.

Manchester United injuries and team news

United’s defence took a hit at the weekend with Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw now expected to miss out. With Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones already unavailable, the visitors could turn to Alex Tuanzebe.
