The stats behind our Manchester United vs Burnley predictions:

  • Both teams have scored in five of Man Utd’s last seven Premier League home games.
  • Man Utd have won their last three Premier League home meetings against Burnley (all by a two-goal margin).
  • Man Utd have opened the scoring in three of their last five Premier League home matches.

Can Burnley pull off the great escape?

Burnley have looked guaranteed for a return to the Championship for most of the season, but recent results have given them hope that they can pull off the great escape. With just one defeat from their last seven in the Premier League (W2 D4), the Clarets find themselves just three points off safety with four games remaining and with Nottingham Forest to play on the final day, they may just be able to pull it off.

Vincent Kompany’s side had an impressive 4-1 win against fellow strugglers Sheffield United last time out and if they can leave Old Trafford with all three points here, then it would be consecutive top-flight away wins for the first time since May 2021. However, despite Manchester United’s struggles in recent times, they do hold an impressive record against promoted sides, having never lost a Premier League home game against the previous season’s second-tier champions, winning 24 and drawing seven of their 31 such games.

This coupled with the fact that the Clarets are winless in their last 18 Premier League games against sides that finished the previous campaign in the top four (D2 L16), makes it a tough ask.

Bruno Fernandes to score anytime @ 16/9 with NetBet

Bruno Fernandes has scored seven goals in his last six Premier League appearances for Manchester United, as many as he had in his previous 45. He’s scored twice in each of his last two Premier League games, the first time he has scored back-to-back braces in the competition. He has now scored 10+ goals in three of his last four Premier League campaigns for the Red Devils.

Burnley have won just one of their last 32 Premier League games against sides to finish in the top four the previous season (D4 L27), so it’s no surprise that Manchester United are odds on favourites to win at Old Trafford. The Clarets are 22/5 to win if you fancy them to put an end to that record, however.
