Betting Tip: Backing a score draw 24/5 on Betfair

Manchester United enjoyed the best result of their season last weekend, beating Chelsea 2-0 at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho really worked his former side’s formation out and countered it excellently. The Red Devils have been on a great run of late, and have the Premier League’s best away record, but face a Burnley side equally as confident at home.

The Clarets have only lost four times at Turf Moor this season, and their defensive organisation mean United will have to force the issue and dictate the game. Breaking down a low block has been their achilles heel this season, because they struggle to play at a high intensity. It is no surprise that three of the sides to have won at Burnley, Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham, all have great pace coursing through their teams.

United are without one of their main creators in Juan Mata, but Marcus Rashford, fresh from netting against Chelsea, is the kind of dynamic player Mourinho will need if he is to get a victory here. It is likely Zlatan Ibrahimovic will return to the starting lineup after being on the bench on Sunday. The Swede should come up against former United defender Michael Keane directly, and he is adept at winning aerial duels. If Ibrahimovic can get in behind him, as he has with so many others this season, while also bringing the likes of Rashford and Henrikh Mkhitaryan into the game in space. The movement of Mkhitaryan will be key because the midfield four of Burnley will attempt to keep their shape.

Paul Pogba’s energy will also be key, especially against the ageing legs of Joey Barton. United’s hopes of victory will improve if the Frenchman can control the game, but so often he doesn’t do that. Playing Ander Herrera over Michael Carrick will also add more energy to their play.

Burnley will hit United on the counter attack, with Andre Gray looking to run the channels and stretch the visiting defence. Key to their effectiveness in transitions will be Ashley Barnes, who starts up front with Gray but will drop into pockets of space in behind the midfield. Sean Dyche could also start Sam Vokes which would mean playing more high direct balls over the top of United. Whether Mourinho goes three at the back will dictate Dyche’s thinking, because if he does, Barnes will be the better option as he will give Gray more freedom to create space.

United have often struggled to back up good results this season, and they head into this one needing to be wary of an organised Burnley side, who will battle to a point. However, there is a strong chance the Red Devils will take this win and you can benefit from this Premier League bet of 24/5 with a Betfair free bet.
