Manchester United take on Burnley tonight knowing a win or a draw will take them back to the top of the Premier League table for the first time in over seven years.

Ahead of a fixture originally scheduled for the opening weekend of the season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side sit level on points with champions Liverpool with a game in hand.

United will hope to put real pressure on Jurgen Klopp’s side ahead of their clash at Anfield this weekend but Burnley are out to spoil those plans and continue their improved run of form which saw them take 11 points from a possible 18 in December.

Ahead of kick-off, we take a look at some of the price boosts on offer with Sky Bet this evening.

Bruno Fernandes to score from outside the area: 6/1

For the first time all season, Bruno Fernandes was given a full rest on Saturday as United edged past Watford in their FA Cup third round clash.

Since arriving at Old Trafford, the Portuguese has scored 19 goals in 30 league games with 58 of his 95 shots coming from outside the area.

Edinson Cavani to score a brace: 6/1

Another who could be well-rested after serving a three-match suspension, Edinson Cavani will be hoping to continue his excellent form on the road for United.

All four of his goals in United red have come away from home, grabbing a brace against Southampton and one each in league and Carabao Cup clashes with Everton.

Harry Maguire to score a header: 14/1

The United skipper continues to get on the end of attacking corners for his side but has just one goal to his name this season – nodding home superbly against Newcastle back in October. Can he improve those numbers tonight?

Ben Mee to score a header: 33/1

A first-half header from Mee secured victory over Burnley against Sheffield United at the end of December and set pieces could be their best bet for getting on the score sheet tonight.

Five of the Clarets’ last eight Premier League goals have come from a corner or free kick.
