Burnley vs Manchester United Predictions

  • Burnley have drawn their last two games 0-0
  • The Clarets have seen 62% of their home games finish with fewer than three goals
  • Under 2.5 has landed in the last six meetings between these two at Turf Moor
  • In all six of those clashes, Burnley have failed to score

Burnley rue missed chance

Hosting Watford on Saturday was a golden opportunity for Burnley to state their survival case, but a 0-0 draw has them bottom of the Premier League. The Clarets are struggling to make Turf Moor the force of old, which is a concern given they have lost their last five home Premier League matches against Manchester United without scoring a single goal.

The Clarets have won only once in eight home games this term, but they will take some encouraging signs from their last two matches. The hosts are coming off consecutive 0-0 draws, which suggests they’re improving at the back at least.

United shaken

If United thought that Ralf Rangnick was going to be their Thomas Tuchel then things have certainly not gone to plan. The Red Devils were knocked out of the FA Cup on Friday night after a shootout loss to Middlesbrough, wasting chance after chance in that poor display.

United’s attack is still not clicking, so this could be another opportunity for the Burnley defence to excel. They’ve scored eight times across their last six visits to Turf Moor. Given the state United are in heading into this clash, I wouldn’t back them to improve on that.

Tight contest at Turf Moor

Each of United’s last six visits to this ground have seen under 2.5 goals scored and I can’t see this one going any differently. The Clarets have seen 62% of their games finish with fewer than three goals, while losing Chris Wood makes them an even less threatening prospect in attack.

In eight home games the Clarets have scored eight times and conceded eight times. With their recent goalless draws considered you’d expect the hosts to go with a safety first approach in this clash, which has me backing under 2.5 goals here.

Given United’s struggles I can’t get behind them to win here, while Burnley have only lost six straight home meetings with an opponent once in their history. Back the hosts to pick up another 0-0 draw, a sixth draw in nine home league matches.

Burnley predicted lineup: Pope; Roberts, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; McNeil, Westwood, Brownhill, Cornet; Weghorst, Rodriguez

Man United predicted lineup: Dea Gea; Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Telles; Fernandes, McTominay, Pogba; Rashford, Ronaldo, Elanga
