Burnley come into this game after a run of only one win in their last ten games and this has moved them down to 14th place in the Premier League table. They are still eight points clear of the relegation zone which is an achievement in itself and it looks more than likely that they will still be in the top flight next season which means a job well done for Sean Dyche and his side. They have a brilliant home record and have won ten games at Turf Moor so far this season including a win against Liverpool earlier on in the season so it won’t be easy for top four chasing Manchester United.
Manchester United eventually made it through to the Europa League semi-finals in midweek after an extra-time victory over Anderlecht. This victory come at a cost though as both Marcos Rojo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic limped off with injuries and it looks as if both could be missing for this match. As well as this they played 120 minutes of football whilst Burnley had a week to rest and this could have a massive impact on this game. Jose Mourinho’s side haven’t lost in the league since early October so although they will be tired, they will be tough to beat.
Burnley vs Man United Predictions
My first Burnley vs Man United betting tip is going to be for both teams to score. Burnley have a fantastic home record and have only failed to score at home once since early October and with Manchester United having a shake-up in defence I think it’s likely that the home side will score. I also think Manchester United have enough quality to grab a goal and both teams to score is fairly priced at William Hill and they are offering 5/4 for this to happen.
My second Burnley vs Man United prediction is a short priced cards tip. I watch Manchester United a lot and they get a lot of bookings in most matches. They have picked up two or more cards in seven of their last eleven games and I expect the same on Sunday. I expect they may have a much changed team considering they played 120 minutes of football on Thursday and I can see the fringe players grabbing a booking or two. Bet365 are offering 4/7 for Manchester United to have over 1.5 cards (two or more cards).

My third and final Burnley vs Man United tip is a huge 70/1 shot exclusively at Sky Bet. They are offering 70/1 for Robert Brady to score first and the match to finish 2-1 or 1-1. I think this is worth a pound or two considering how strong Burnley are at home and how unpredictable United are. Robert Brady scored a cracking free kick when Chelsea came to Turf Moor in February and it wouldn’t surprise me if he scored again here and the 70/1 looks too good to turn down and this concludes my Premier League tips.
Burnley vs Manchester United Team News
Burnley will be hoping that Sam Vokes has recovered from a tight hamstring which made him limp of in their last match against Everton. Dean Marney is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury. As for Manchester United, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Juan Mata will be missing for this game and could miss the remainder of the season and it looks unlikely that Marcos Rojo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic will play any part after missing up injuries against Anderlecht.
