Burnley are at Turf Moor for Sunday’s Premier League showdown versus Manchester United. The hosts have looked a different outfit from the previous campaign amid their European exertions and they are presently rooted to the drop zone. Likewise, United have endured their worst start to a league season since 1992 after back-to-back losses and this sees them occupying a mid-table position. Follow all our predictions, odds, football betsand betting tips below.

Betting Tips for the game

Burnley suffered their eight straight league game without a victory as they succumbed to a 4-2 defeat at Fulham. Sean Dyche’s side drew 1-1 versus Olympiakos in the Europe League playoffs in midweek but the result was not sufficient as they lost by a 4-1 aggregate scoreline.

Meanwhile, United come into the game on the back of successive league defeats versus Brighton & Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur. They have yet to keep a clean sheet this term with seven goals conceded in the process.

Burnley’s previous meeting versus United was at Turf Moor in January which saw the visitors come up triumphs. Anthony Martial netted the winner for United in the 54th minute. Our betting tips and predictions expect a United win.

Match odds

Burnley are given a price of 6.00 for a victory but we are not anticipating this outcome. The Clarets have struggled to cope with the congested schedule since the start of the campaign and this is a game where United should expect to return to winning ways. Nearly half of Burnley’s first-choice players were in European action on Thursday night and the fatigue should come into play late in the game. Our preview expects United to return to winning ways.

Burnley win odds: 6.00

Burnley vs Manchester United draw odds: 3.80

Correct Score odds

Since their maiden Premier League triumph over United in 2009, Burnley have contested United on seven more occasions where they have picked up just three points. Judging by this, Burnley have generally been outwitted by United and we are fancying the same this weekend, though they may breach the visitors’ backline. Our correct score prediction is to go for a United 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Both defences have been breached regularly this campaign and there have been seven goals conceded by either side in the opening three matches. Still, United will be expected to come up with a strong response after suffering successive defeats and we are anticipating an open encounter. Our total goals prediction fancies over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Romelu Lukaku has started the season with just one goals from three appearances but he has been guilty of missing genuine clear-cut chances. Being the main man upfront, he should have the best chance of scoring and he has a decent record with two goals from five matches versus Burnley. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Lukaku.
