Manchester United vs Burnley – Predictions & Football Betting Tips
Manchester United are up against Burnley hoping to preserve the 100% record under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian has a perfect record since coming as the replacement for Jose Mourinho and he has seen United move level on points with Arsenal in the league table. Burnley have been able to make a significant push away from the bottom three owing to a recent set of results, but relegation threat is far from over for the Clarets.

Burnley had a tough result against Manchester City and the team are in danger of suffering another heavy defeat. The Clarets have been defensively for this season. Even though Sean Dyche has seen his team improve over the last few weeks, Manchester United’s confidence levels are sky-high and it will be extremely hard to break such a run. United have a lot of weapons in their arsenal and the return of Alexis Sanchez is also a significant boost. Our preview would go with a victory for United.

Manchester United vs Burnley draw odds: 6.50
Burnley win odds: 13.00
Correct Score odds
United have been able to register under 2.5 goals in four out of the last five matches. Even though they started out with a blitz under Solskjaer, the recent run has seen a dip in form. Burnley, though, remain as one of the worst performing defences in the division with 43 goals conceded already. After letting five past Manchester City during the weekend, Burnley’s confidence will not be good. Our correct score prediction would go with a 3-0 win for United.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Burnley’s poor defending leaves a lot of scope for Manchester United to get over 2.5 goals for the second consecutive match. The Red Devils are yet to score over 2.5 goals in a league match in 2019. Burnley have a threat on set pieces and are capable of denying United a clean sheet for the third consecutive game. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals over 2.5 at 1.53[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Alexis Sanchez returned to form with a goal against Arsenal during the weekend. He has not been great since the transfer from Arsenal, but the Chilean has an excellent record against Burnley with five goals in just seven matches. Sanchez has also been contributing a goal or an assist in his last three appearances. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Alexis Sanchez.
