Manchester United v Burnley Match Preview & Trends

Can United win their 5th straight match?

Burnley visit Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon hoping to take points off another side in the top four after claiming a draw with 3rd place Leicester City last time out. Manchester Utd have been undefeated in their last 11 matches so it will be an uphill task for Sean Dyche’s side but United have not been firing on all cylinders at the Theatre Of Dreams this season.

The Clarets have scored 32% of their goals in the first 15 minutes which doesn’t bode well for the slow-starting Red Devils who have a tendency not to start playing until they are behind, particularly at home. There have been 3 or more goals scored in total in each of Burnley’s last 4 away games and at least one first-half goal has been scored in Burnley’s last 6 games. The Clarets have scored before half-time in their last 5 fixtures and at least one first half goal has been scored in each of Burnley’s last 6 away games in a row.

There has been a first-half goal scored in each of Man Utd’s last 5 games in a row and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be keeping everything crossed that despite being in second place, it will be this weekend that his team finally show some consistent form at Old Trafford. The former fortress has been a shadow venue of its former self in recent years with the fear-factor seemingly missing when teams visit a less than potent United side these days.

Key trends

Manchester United have picked up an average of 1.8 Points Per Game in their 15 matches played at home

Burnley’s average Points Per Game in their 15 away games is 1.

Manchester Utd have won their last 4 matches.
