Manchester United continued their turning of the corner with interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men bagging a well-earned victory over Arsenal in the FA Cup on Friday. They play Burnley, whose FA Cup ended with a 5-0 thrashing to United’s rivals Manchester City.
Burnley arrive at Old Trafford having not netted a goal since their 5th January game so head into their fourth game looking for the net, with Manchester United hot favourites to collect all the points at a mere 2/7.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made slight changes to the side that beat Arsenal 3-1 on Friday night and will recall the likes of Phil Jones, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and David De Gea.
Given the quick turnaround between matches, Diogo Dalot may also be called upon to replace Ashley Young at right-back.
Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku both played important roles in defeating Arsenal in the FA Cup fourth round but will more than likely return to the bench here.
Chris Smalling could make the bench on Tuesday night but Marcos Rojo and Marouane Fellaini are sidelined for the home side.
Fred could get a rare start if Solskjaer needs some fresh legs in midfield after Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera all played 90 minutes on Friday.
Nick Pope looked rusty on his return between the sticks in Saturday’s 5-0 defeat away to Manchester City, with Tom Heaton set to be recalled to face his former club in midweek.
Robbie Brady has suffered a setback in his bid to return to full fitness and is unlikely to recover in time to face his former club. Another former Manchester United player, Phil Bardsley, is also a doubt.
Johann Gudmundsson is still trying to recover from a thigh injury that has kept him sidelined in nearly a month.
Charlie Taylor may have to fill in at right-back if neither Bardsley nor Matthew Lowton can recover in time for the trip to Old Trafford, with Stephen Ward at left-back.
Potential Manchester United Starting XI: Gea, Shaw, Jones, Lindelof, Dalot, Herrera, Matic, Pogba, Martial, Lingard and Rashford
Potential Burnley Starting XI: Heaton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Ward, McNeil, Cork, Westwood, Hendrick, Barnes and Wood
Head To Head
- Man Utd 4-2-0 (Last six)
Key Stats & Facts
- Manchester United have won all of the last six Premier League games
- Manchester United have kept a clean sheet in six of their last eight meetings with Burnley
- Manchester United have been winning at half time/full time in their last four home matches
- There has been over 2.5 goals scored in Manchester United’s last five home games.
- Manchester United – 2/7 Betfair
- Draw – 11/2 BetVictor
- Burnley – 13/1 Marathonbet
Odds compilers are certainly pricing Manchester United up with some reputation now implying an approximate 78% chance of winning the game against a Burnley side, which have failed on all of the last six meetings to take any joy bar two draws in the process.
With Manchester United seemingly on the rise again, punters and pundits will be wondering where Solskjaer’s winning streak will end. You will be able to bag 13/1 at Marathonbet that Sean Dyche’s men can get the job done. One may assume that after a 5-0 hiding in the FA Cup, will mean the Clarets can concentrate on League position for the rest of their campaign and would certainly like to escape from the potential relegation battle they face.
Punters will be looking elsewhere from the 2/7 price for a way in and may consider the win to nil market, best priced 23/20 with BetVictor. However, those opposing the possibility of conceding can consider the Man Utd win and both to score, which a tad under 2/1 at 19/10.
One bet that may appeal is for United to win the game, but also for there to be under 3.5 goals. Skybet are one of the firms offering this at 11/10. Looking back at previous results, the last two at Old Trafford have been tight seeing this come up for January, with all of December seeing this head over. Burnley on the other hand, on the road have been turned over with four losses in the last six, with only Arsenal and Manchester City piling in on the goals.
I’d like to think Dyche’s set up will be to keep the game tight as demonstrated in 4 of the last 5 league matches on the road, but may not have quite enough to take anything from the game.
