Burnley vs Manchester United 20 January 2018: EPL Preview and Predictions

Burnley were beaten last weekend away from home against Crystal Palace and now this seasons over achievers will be tested again as they take on Manchester United at from home. The Red Devils will look to win while Burnley will hope to cause a big upset so we should be able to witness a great game of football.

Burnley will want to play a defensive style of football against Manchester United and that is a system that has worked for this side in the past. Manchester United will be a big test but I expect the home side to have a very organized plan and hope that with the help of the fans they will hope that at least a point can be salvaged.

On the other side of the pitch, Manchester United will be desperate to ensure that they don’t lose any points in this fixture. The Red Devils are the much better side and they will know that they have to keep winning if they wish to maintain second place on the English Premier League table. Martial and Lingard are playing very well for the Red Devils and Jose Mourinho will hope that they can get the side a win in this game.

I am going to predict that Manchester United will win this game. The Red Devils are the better side and I think they will be good enough to win away from home. Unfortunately we are not getting the best price for this bet and as a result I am going to suggest that we avoid this wager. The best bet is the under 2.5 goals which I think will come through since Burnley have a very hard defense to break down.

Under 2.5 goals
