Burnley v Man Utd – Soccer Betting Tips & Predictions
The problems at Man Utd took a turn for the worse on Monday night. The club’s fans were already revolting against the board, the manager and the players for a lacklustre start to the season but the club was almost plunged into crisis after the 3-0 defeat against Tottenham.
The way that Mourinho applauded the fans who remained in Old Trafford after the match and lashed out at the assembled media in his press conference led some to suggest that his time at the club may be coming to an end.
Those suggestions now appear a little premature but you still get the feeling that Sunday’s match against Burnley is now a must win.
It’s also an important match for Burnley. The Clarets have just one point to show from their opening three matches but turning that run around will be made all the more difficult following the exploits of Thursday night’s Europa League qualifier against Olympiacos.
Man Utd to Get Back to Winning Ways
The most disappointing thing about the shock 3-0 loss to Spurs for many Man Utd fans was the fact that the Red Devils actually started the game very well.
Mourinho’s men came out fighting in the first half and created multiple chances in the opening 45 minutes. They couldn’t hammer home that advantage by taking those chances though and were then severely punished by Spurs who were ruthless in front of goal in the second half.
The way that United played in the first half would see them go into the break with a comfortable win against most opponents. We certainly believe that a repeat performance at Turf Moor will see Man Utd pick up a very welcome three points.
United’s results have inflated their odds with the bookies and we recommend you take full advantage of the $1.63 that Unibet are quoting on an away win.
Sanchez Can Get United Off to a Flyer
Mourinho and his players know that the best way to put such a damaging fortnight behind them is to get off to a flying start against Burnley.
Any nerves the players have about beating the Clarets will quickly vanish if they can open the scoring nice and early and we think that’s just what Man Utd will do.
There are a few ways to capitalise on this with your EPL betting.
If you think, as we do, that Man Utd will score in the first half and hold on to win the match, a bet on the Man Utd/Man Utd selection in Pointsbet’s half time/full time market is well worth taking at $2.60.
Another tempting option is betting on Man Utd scoring their first goal of the game in the opening 15 minutes of the match. That’s available at $4.80 with MadBookie so snap that price up while it lasts.
Finally, consider backing Alexis Sanchez to score the game’s first goal at $5.50 with Neds. The Chilean is as competitive a player as you’ll find. He didn’t join Man Utd to sit in midtable, he joined to win matches so we may finally see the Sanchez who dragged Arsenal forwards during his time at the Emirates. For more free bets click here
