Manchester United are on course to finish second in the Premier League, whereas Burnley are only just above the relegation zone.
However, the Clarets have a great record at Old Trafford, being unbeaten in their last four visits and netting twice on each of the past three trips here.
On this occasion, we reckon 23/20 for both teams to score is good value for our first Man Utd vs Burnley prediction.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United extended their excellent away record when winning 3-1 at Tottenham last weekend, with the Red Devils now unbeaten in 16 Premier League road trips.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were unlucky to have an Edinson Cavani goal ruled out before Son Heung-min gave Spurs a half-time lead.
However, United have been superb at coming from behind to claim victories this term and responded through Fred, Cavani and Mason Greenwood.
Harry Maguire said on the club’s official website: “We need to stop conceding that first goal and make it a bit easier for our fans and the staff to watch.
“But we’re giving them great entertainment; it’s something that shows great character and spirit.
“We have goals in this team and I think the three goals that we scored were high quality.
“So, I think it’s really important that we know that we can always get back into the game. I think we’ve showed that this year.”
Cavani’s movement up front in that match was outstanding and the Uruguay star has also netted in two of his last three league games at this venue.
He continued his hot streak with a fine volley in Thursday’s 2-0 Europa League triumph over Granada.
Looking at the Man Utd vs Burnley odds, we like 16/5 for Cavani to score the last goal in this contest.
Last Man Utd EPL line-up: Henderson, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, Pogba, Fred, Fernandes, McTominay, Cavani, Rashford.
Marcus Rashford will be assessed, as he has been dealing with a foot/ankle issue recently and missed training on Wednesday.
Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay are available again after missing the midweek match through European suspensions. Eric Bailly could be involved for the first time in a month, but Anthony Martial and Phil Jones remain out.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley are still looking over their shoulders at the drop zone after blowing leads in their last couple of matches.
The Clarets went 2-0 up at Southampton before going down 3-2 and lost 2-1 to Newcastle on home turf after being ahead at half-time.
Those results and United’s comeback record make 7/1 for either team to lead and then lose a tempting price.
Sean Dyche is refusing to press any panic buttons, though, especially as his side bossed possession and had 24 attempts at goal versus the Magpies.
Having already won away to Liverpool and Arsenal this season, Burnley may make the short trip down the M66 to Old Trafford with little fear.
“It’s not an easy place to go, Manchester United, but we’ll focus on the performance and if we keep performing like that, we’ll see ourselves right,” insisted Dyche.
The Clarets can take heart from past exploits on this ground, while United have dropped points in seven of 15 home games this term.
Chris Wood has scored here for the past two seasons and 14/5 for him to net at any time again is added to our Man Utd vs Burnley betting tips.
Last Burnley line-up: Peacock-Farrell, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters, Gudmundsson, Brownhill, McNeil, Westwood, Wood, Vydra.
England goalkeeper Nick Pope could miss a second straight Burnley game with a shoulder problem, while Dwight McNeil took a knock in training on Wednesday which has been sore. Ashley Barnes, Robbie Brady and Kevin Long remain sidelined.
