Manchester United vs Burnley
English Premier League.
Date: Tuesday, 29th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford (Manchester).
Any team would dream of the kind of form the Red Devils is in. After the arrival of caretaker Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær, the team from Manchester has never lost points. They are currently on an 8 match winning streak in all competitions. In 5 of those games, the final score had more than 2.5 goals in total.
United are also unbeaten in their 9 previous home games and have won the last 5 matches on the trot. More than 2.5 goals came in 5 of their last 6 home games in both Cup and League. The previous game saw an excellent performance from Pogba and team as they thrashed Arsenal 1-3 in the FA Cup.
Burnley is also not bad themselves. Recent form shows that they are unbeaten in 4 league games with 3 wins on the trot. They are unbeaten in the last 5 matches on a row. But in away games, the Clarets are not so good.
They have only 2 wins in their previous 10 matches on the road. Six of those 10 games were lost and they concede plenty of goals in them also. Against the in-form Reds, they will be in for a real beating if they are lazy in defence.

Manchester United vs Burnley: Prediction
United are unbeatable at their current form, by this opposition. The linkup play between their midfield and forwards are exquisite. They also have home advantage and the visitors are also in bad shape. Thus a bet can be placed on the hosts to win at both half and full time with 1.80 odds.
Ole’s team are good in attack, but they often make mistakes at the back. Since they play higher up the pitch, they leave open space which the opponents can take advantage of. So we can bet on both teams scoring in this game with 2.00 odds.
