Burnley will be hoping to pull off another Old Trafford upset when they take on Manchester United in Sunday’s Premier League clash.
Sean Dyche’s men boast a surprisingly good record at this stadium, having gone four matches unbeaten and managed a shock 2-0 win in their last visit.

However, they are 8/1 (9.00) outsiders with bet365 to extend that run with another surprise victory here.
The Red Devils have only lost one of their last 19 matches in all competitions and are clear 1/3 (1.33) favourites to close the gap on leaders Manchester City to eight points by coming out on top.
Three of the last four meetings between this duo at this ground have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 17/4 (5.25) on them cancelling each other out once again.

Harry Maguire, Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw are available once again following suspension while Eric Bailly has returned from COVID-19 isolation and Marcus Rashford is likely to have recovered from a minor injury. However, Phil Jones and Anthony Martial remain sidelined.

Manchester United vs Burnley Preview
The Clarets’ string of positive results at this ground have not merely come as a result of stout rearguard action, with their attack scoring twice in each of the last three visits.
What’s more, their recent away games this season have generally been high-scoring, with five of the last six producing three goals or more and the most recent three serving up 12 in total.
Considering Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team has produced 38 goals at either end in just the last nine league games in their own backyard, another entertaining encounter seems likely once again here.
Manchester United vs Burnley Tips and Predictions
It is hard to see another Burnley upset after a run of just two wins in 13 fixtures and so odds of 21/20 (2.05) looking generous on an in-form United side winning their fifth match in succession in a game featuring more than two goals.
