Anthony Martial To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Anthony Martial has scored four goals in just seven appearances this term. With United likely to rest Marcus Rashford, the Frenchman could stake a claim to replace the departed Cristiano Ronaldo in their attack.

Manchester United vs Burnley Predictions

  • Manchester United have seen over 2.5 goals scored in four of their last six games, posting five wins in that run.
  • Burnley, meanwhile, have seen a minimum of three goals scored in each of their last seven matches, netting 17 times.
  • The Red Devils have seen over 2.5 goals scored in six of their last 10 League Cup games.
  • Anthony Martial has scored four goals in just seven appearances this season.

Red Devils back in action against Championship leaders

England’s elite sides are back in action following a five-week World Cup layoff this week, and one of the standout fixtures in round four of the Carabao Cup sees Manchester United host Championship leaders Burnley – led by Manchester City legend Vincent Kompany. Erik ten Hag will be desperate to end United’s five-year trophy drought, and this competition could represent his best chance to do so.

United won five of their last six games before the World Cup break, four of which contained over two goals. The Red Devils’ last fixture in this competition saw them record a thrilling 4-2 win over Aston Villa, and with several attackers looking to stake a claim following Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit, another high-scoring affair may be anticipated – six of United’s last 10 League Cup games have featured over 2.5 goals.

Burnley, meanwhile, are flying under Kompany. The Clarets have won eight of their last nine matches, the last seven of which have contained over 2.5 goals, and they have scored at least 10 goals more than any other Championship side (46) this season. Burnley have hit 17 goals in their last seven fixtures, last being shut out by Watford in early August, and they could play their part in a thriller.

Goals expected at Theatre of Dreams

With Burnley likely to carry a threat and the make-up of United’s side uncertain, backing the hosts to win an open match featuring over 2.5 goals appears a prudent play.

Meanwhile, with United scoring eight goals in their last three home games, a 3-1 win for Ten Hag’s men could make a decent correct score prediction, and Anthony Martial – who has four goals in seven games this season – could be a strong anytime goalscorer pick.
