The Clarets suffered a 1-0 loss at Everton on Thursday. That saw them fail to bank three straight Premier League wins. Burnley have taken a W5 D0 L4 record at Turf Moor in this season’s top flight. They secured a 1-0 win there over Newcastle in their last Premier League home fixture. Each of their last three Premier League games have produced a 1-0 scoreline (W2 L1) so that is a little trend that is going with them. All of Burnley’s home wins this season, home and away, have been against teams who ended Boxing Day outside of the top nine. The Red Devils are eighth.

Manchester United have not taken a clean sheet in 14 Premier League fixtures now. They did manage to get a win on the weekend however, a 4-1 success at home against Newcastle. In each of their last three Premier League games now, home and away, United have conceded the opening goal. That win over Newcastle was a response which they needed too, as they had lost their previous game away at Watford. The Red Devils really do blow hot and cold and they have not produced a tremendous season away from Old Trafford. The away record of Manchester United in this campaign is at W2 D3 L4.

There has been a lack of goals from them away from home. United have scored 10 goals in their nine away fixtures this season. Only a third of their road games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. The Red Devils have one win in their last four away games (D1 L2) so are not in the hottest of form. They have not secured a single clean sheet away from Old Trafford this season. There has been a big trend with the away goals that they have shipped. 77% of their road goals conceded have gone against them in the second period of fixtures. They have shipped the opening goal in five of their nine away games this season.

Burnley vs Manchester United Predictions

Burnley to win: The Clarets may be worth a flutter here, because Manchester United have struggled for performances out on their travels. So they may not find Turf Moor an easy place to visit. Tactically Burnley, who don’t mind sitting in, could get this right and deliver three points. Home win.
