Half of United’s home clean sheets have come against the top six

The Red Devils have conceded 1.33 goals per game at Old Trafford in the Premier League

Burnley have scored six times across their last three visits to Old Trafford

Red Devils seeing clearly

Manchester United’s much-mocked decision to change the the colour of the Old Trafford seat covering worked on Thursday, as the Red Devils saw off Granda in a 2-0 win. They’re into the last four of the Europa League, with their run-in taking shape.

This could be a promising finish for United, who have a chance to lift European silverware and look certain for a top two finish in the Premier League. Their hopes of catching Man City look remote, but the Red Devils could be within eight points of the leaders by Sunday night.

Burnley on a run

16th placed Burnley have little to fear at the bottom of the table, with their season likely to fizzle out with a healthy seven-point lead over the bottom three. However, they’ve been playing like a side with a point to prove of late, making real strides going forward.

Burnley have scored in five consecutive Premier League games, quite a feat with Ashley Barnes unavailable. The Clarets’ attacking intent hasn’t helped them lately, blowing a 1-0 lead against Newcastle and a 2-0 lead at Southampton in their last two. They’re unlikely to fare better in Manchester this weekend.

Busy spell could hurt United

United may have cruised through on Thursday, but their fixture pile up is bound to cause issues for them in the coming weeks. Burnley have had a week to prepare for this clash and they should be raring to go as they look to continue their scoring run.

United haven’t been that reliable defensively at Old Trafford this term. They won 2-1 against Brighton in their last home league game, with their results against lower sides seeing plenty of defensive slips. Half of United’s home clean sheets have come against the top six (three of six) and United have shipped 1.33 goals per league game at Old Trafford.

Burnley have scored six times across their last three visits to Old Trafford and we’re backing them to get on the scoresheet once again. Both teams to score is our pick for this encounter, while we’re backing a 2-1 victory for United as our correct score prediction. The Clarets have lost all of their visits to the top five so far, losing seven of eight meetings overall.
