Man Utd v Burnley Betting Tips & Predictions

Erik ten Hag will hope his Manchester United side can pick up from where they left off this week. 

The Red Devils won seven of 10 before the World Cup, and will hope to cruise past Burnley. 

Ten Hag is missing several key players, however, including Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, Diogo Dalot and Jadon Sancho.

Burnley are no pushovers. Vincent Kompany has worked wonders with the Lancashire club, losing two matches all season to sit three points clear atop the Championship. 

They have several absentees too, though, with Anass Zaroury, Connor Roberts, Vitinho and Nathan Tella all sidelined.

Both Teams To Score: Yes

17/20 (William Hill)

Both teams scored in Manchester United’s last three matches before the World Cup. While Harry Maguire performed well with England and Ten Hag has Scott McTominay and Fred available in midfield, the Red Devils are markedly weaker defensively without Varane and Martinez.

Burnley, admittedly against less talented opposition, have failed to score just once this season, which was back in mid-August against Watford. 

They have found the net 17 times in their last six matches.

Anytime Goalscorer: Anthony Martial

6/4 (Bet365)

With Cristiano Ronaldo no longer at the club and Marcus Rashford coming off the World Cup, this fixture is a perfect opportunity for Anthony Martial to start up front. 

The Frenchman has once again dealt with injuries this season, but he has been effective when available, scoring four goals in just 292 minutes of action.

Martial hasn’t posted impressive shot totals, yet his off-ball movement will be a nuisance for this Burnley defence.

Total Cards: Over 2.5

11/10 (Paddy Power)

Only three teams commit more fouls per match than Manchester United in the Premier League. Just one team has been shown more cards. 

While Burnley have generally been disciplined under Kompany, the balance of this match will test that more than usual. 

Burnley will fancy their chances at an upset, which could mean this clash is a bit more competitive than expected.
