Burnley vs Manchester United Betting Tips

After the shocking defeat to the bottom-placed Watford a week ago, Manchester United beat Newcastle on Boxing Day. The Red Devils were pretty good in that game, scoring four goals after going 1:0 down. The Red Devils completely dominated the match, having the ball in their possession for 74% of the game.

Manchester United also had a huge number of goal chances. They had 22 attempts on goal, in comparison to 7 goal chances of Newcastle. Another good news for Manchester United fans is that Paul Pogba is back. Although there’s always some talk that the World Cup winner is on his way out of the club, he seems fit and ready to help the team get up the ladders in the Premier League.

Manchester United have another chance to improve their position in the table as they’re taking on Burnley, a team whose form is going down lately. This team is in the 12th place at the moment, having lost three games in the previous five Premier League rounds. They did win two matches in those five rounds, but those games were against teams from the bottom half of the table, namely Bournemouth and Newcastle.

When Burnley played against the teams from the upper half of the table, they lost most of the time. This season, Burnley got hammered by Tottenham, Manchester City, Chelsea, Leicester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, etc. They did manage to get a draw with Manchester United at the Old Trafford, but something like that does not seem very plausible in Saturday’s game.

Burnley Form and Latest News

Burnley are injury-free at the moment, but that’s not giving their fans too much hope ahead of the game with Manchester United. This team just seems very poor when playing against teams from the higher part of the Premier League table.

Manchester United Form and Latest News

The Red Devils are in a strange form lately, often winning when they’re underdogs and losing when they’re favorites. Still, their performance against Newcastle is giving their fans a lot of confidence that they might get in a winning streak.

With a little bit of luck and a win over Burnley, they could get up to the 5th place in the table. And if they continue playing well, they could get among the top 4 in the next couple of weeks. This seems like more than enough motivation for their players to give their best on the weekend.
