Manchester United and Burnley will play each other in the English Premier League. Both of the teams are struggling at the moment and will see this match as an opportunity to turn things around.

Things are looking very bad at Manchester United and it seems like it is only a matter of time before the manager is sacked. The players are looking poor and there are warning signs for the board that this could be a disaster of a season. The defense is the biggest issue in term of squad strength as the likes of Smalling and Jones are not good enough. In addition to that, the manager seems to be fighting with top players likes Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, and Alexis Sanchez. This has resulted in the team losing and it is only a matter of time before changes need to be made at the club. Normally this match would be an easy match for Manchester United to win but considering how the team situation at the club, I am not sure.

Things are not much better at Burnley as they are looking very poor also but the team looks united which is a big plus. Burnley are much better at home than away which will give them a massive boost. This is a tough match but if the home side can take advantage of the Manchester United civil war, they can get a good result from this tough fixture.

I am finding it difficult to pick a winner. While picking Burnley seems like a good value option, I am not entirely convinced they are good enough to win. Either way, I think avoiding betting on the result is the best option. The over 2.5 goals is the best betting option since both sides have serious defensive problems.

 

Pick:
Over 2.5 goals
