Burnley may be slipping-up in front of their home fans but they have impressed away from the comforts of Turf Moor and we expect them to provide Manchester United with tough opposition at Old Trafford on Boxing day.
As we head into the festive period, Sean Dyche’s men sit seventh in the Premier League table following their disappointing weekend home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur and far from being the side which were pretty poor on their travels in 2016/17, the Clarets appear to have put their travel-sickness firmly behind them with wins at Everton and Chelsea as well as draws at Spurs and Liverpool.
This will give them comfort as they prepare for what will certainly be a tough assignment at the ‘Theatre of Dreams’ and they will be confident of improving upon their goal-less draw the last time they visited Old Trafford in October 2016.
Burnley’s nine games on the road this season have yielded a ‘mere’ eighteen goals in total with almost half of these coming in just two matches, this statistic demonstrating how hard the Clarets are to break down.
Manchester United have managed just a single goal in each of their last three home matches in the Premier League and we don’t believe that they will return to free-scoring ways when they host the Clarets. Manchester City have been the only side to have comprehensively beaten Sean Dyche’s men this term and we’ll be backing a narrow victory for the Red Devils with the visitors getting themselves onto the scoresheet at some point.
