I'll be honest, I found this a tough one to call.
United are a team I struggle to side with as despite the fact that they find themselves second in the table, they rarely pass the eye test, struggle for continuity and have a worrying ability to lose game you wouldn't expect them to. The already relegated Sheffield United have won at Old Trafford this season, as have Crystal Palace and neither were smash and grab victories.
Burnley themselves have won at Anfield this season but I don't think they'll be arriving to Manchester with great deal of confidence as The Clarets have lost their lost two matches despite leading in both of them (2-0 to Southampton and 1-0 to Newcastle).
Indeed, given Manchester United's ability to win games from behind, I can see a few people backing Burnley half time and United full time. I, however, will be more selective and just back United to win and both teams to score.
That is available at 21/10 with Betway
and has obliged in 12 of their 31 league matches this season. Burnley have scored in each of their last five games and I think Chris Wood in particular can test their backline.
I was looking at Wood to score anytime but 3/1 is scarely available and while that may look ok given his lifetime Premier League record is 41 goals in 119 matches, factoring in the quality of the opposition I would hope for a slightly bigger price and believe you'll be able to get it on the exchange come kick off.
Therefore I will keep it relatively simple and just back Manchester United to win and both teams to score.
