Reason For Manchester United vs Burnley Predictions

  • Manchester United have seen both teams score in eight of their 11 Premier League home games this season.
  • Burnley have scored in seven of their 11 away games, but have only kept two clean sheets in the process.
  • Manchester United have averaged 2.18 goals per home game this season, conceding 0.91 goals per game at the other end.

Man Utd suffer another blow in the top four race

Manchester United fans were made to suffer on Sunday afternoon as they watched their prestigious club utterly outclassed by a Liverpool side on course to win their first Premier League title. It was expected, of course, but that doesn’t make it any less painful for fans of the Red Devils.

That being said, a 2-0 defeat at Anfield is hardly a barometer to measure their recent form, although even when you discount that result it’s still a pretty bleak picture for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side. Man Utd have won three of their last five league games, but they lag five points behind Chelsea in the race for the top four and defeat this week could see them drop as low as 8th.

Clarets receive boost after weekend win

Burnley will be heading into this tie full of confidence as well, with a 2-1 win over 3rd place Leicester on Sunday ending a run of four straight Premier League defeats. Still, the Clarets find themselves in a precarious 14th position in the table, just five points clear of the relegation zone.

Contrary to previous seasons, Burnley’s problems this term lie in their back line. They have conceded 1.65 goals per game in the Premier League, and this rises to 1.81 goals per game when on the road. At the other end of the pitch they have scored in seven of their 11 trips away, so it’s not all bad news.

Defensive problems concerning both teams

Manchester United are looking to solve similar issues in their home form. While they have managed to score in all 11 home games this campaign, they have kept just three clean sheets in the process and the most recent of those came against a Norwich side that have scored just five goals on the road all season.

Of course, the devastating injury to Marcus Rashford at the weekend does harm Manchester United’s attacking threat, but the emergence of Mason Greenwood as a genuine choice up front and the fact that Burnley have shipped nine goals in their last four away games makes a clean sheet for the visitors look very unlikely.

However, keeping Burnley at bay will prove difficult as well, and the hosts’ dreadful clean sheet record at Old Trafford makes a Both Teams to Score bet look attractive.

In the end, we are expecting a home win here. Man Utd have won four of their last six home league games and Burnley have lost five of their last seven on the road. With Man Utd averaging 2.18 goals per game and conceding 0.91 per game at the other end, backing a 2-1 correct score prediction is our choice.
