Burnley vs Manchester United – Premier League: Burnley and Man United will meet this Saturday afternoon at the Turf Moor
On a match counting towards the Premier League’s 24th round
Burnley is in 7th place of the Premier League with 34 points conquered, with 9 wins, 7 draws and 7 losses.
On the goals chapter, the Clarets count with 19 goals scored (4th worst attack of the competition) and 20 goals conceded, which therefore results on an average of 1.7 goals per match (lowest of the competition).
Their record at Turf Moor has been very positive, similarly to their away record, getting the same amount of points in both conditions. The team is going through a rough period, not getting any victory on their last 7 matches.
Manchester United occupies the 2nd place of the Premier League with 50 points conquered, thanks to a record of 15 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses.
When it comes to goals, the Red Devils count with an average of 48 goals scored and 16 goals conceded (being the best defence of the competition, alongside Chelsea), presenting an average of 2.8 goals per match.
Their away record shows 6 wins on the 11 matches they’ve played as visitors. José Mourinho’s team looks determined to follow up on this good cycle of results, since they’ve gotten 3 wins on their last 3 matches.
Burnley vs Manchester United – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Burnley is one of the sensation teams of this Premier League, essentially for what they have done at an early stage of the season. Right now, the Clarets are on a negative moment of form, with their last win being more than 1 month ago.
On the other hand, Man United has been improving, with the team showing confidence and consistency and not having conceded a single goal on their last 4 matches.
I don’t believe this will be a very unbalanced match, even because Burnley is a very competitive team. However, right now, I don’t see the home side having enough arguments to stop José Mourinho’s team that is on an excellent moment of form.
