Manchester United vs. Burnley: ‘Easy win predicted for Red Devils’



Manchester United host Burnley on Wednesday evening (20:15 GMT) with both sides having experienced contrasting Super Sunday’s.

Burnley ended a run of four consecutive league defeats by coming from behind to defeat Leicester 2-1 at Turf Moor. It was a vital win which moves them five points clear of the relegation zone.

United, however, were outplayed in a 2-0 away defeat to their fiercest rivals Liverpool. Mohamed Salah left it until essentially the last kick of the game to secure the three points, but for the majority of the game United were a distant second best.

That should not be the case at Old Trafford on Wednesday. Burnley have beaten United just once in over 50 years: a 1-0 victory in 2009 in Burnley’s first ever Premier League fixture at Turf Moor.

United are 2/5 to earn three points to keep their fading top four hopes alive.

The draw is 7/2, with a Burnley win 15/2.



Curiously, since their promotion back to the Premier League in 2016, Burnley have drawn on all three of their visits to Old Trafford. The last two meetings finished 2-2.

There may be slight value in the draw, then, although the visitors remain without their injured forward Ashley Barnes, who scored in both of those 2-2 draws.

Chris Wood is 3/1 to score anytime, with his likely strike partner Jay Rodriguez 4/1. One of them will surely need to do so if Burnley are to secure a third consecutive 2-2 draw at Old Trafford, which is priced at 22/1.

The hosts, meanwhile, are also without a key forward in Marcus Rashford. The England man is thought to be unavailable for around six weeks due to a double stress fracture in his back.

The responsibility on Anthony Martial therefore increases. Having missed a good chance at Anfield, the France forward will be determined to prove his doubters wrong and he is available at 11/10 to score anytime.

Mason Greenwood and Juan Mata may also both receive a starting berth for this one having been on the bench at the weekend; they are 6/5 and 10/3 respectively to get on the scoresheet.
