Premier League

Sunday’s Premier League action from Turf Moor sees Burnley take on Manchester United.

The Clarets go into the game having been eliminated from the Europa League in the qualifying stages following their 4-2 aggregate defeat to Olympiakos.

Thursday evening’s 1-1 draw stretched their winless run to four games in all competitions while in the league they have take just one point from nine available.

Manager Sean Dyche will be without Johann Berg Gudmundsson after the midfielder picked up a hamstring injury while teenager Dwight McNeil may be included after impressing last time out.

Chris Wood is 7.5 (13/2) to open the scoring with Betfred with Jeff Henrick a 13.0 (12/1) shot with most firms.

The home win is widely available at 6.0 (5/1) with the visitors favourites at 1.67 (4/6). The draw is a 3.9 (29/10) chance with Betfair.

The Red Devils’ defeat at home to Tottenham Hotspur on Monday evening meant that they had lost two of their first three league games for the first time since the inaugural Premier League season.

They of course went on to win the title that year, though few would fancy them to repeat that feat this term with some firms offering 51.0 (50/1) for them to be crowned champions in May.

Phil Jones is unavailable for this fixture after being substituted with a hamstring problem last time out while Marcos Rojo is not ready to return despite being back in training.

Romelu Lukaku is the 4.5 (7/2) favourite to get the first goal of the game with several bookmakers with Anthony Martial a 7.0 (6/1) chance with Betfred having scored on each of his two visits to Turf Moor.

Last season’s corresponding fixture ended in a 1-0 win for Jose Mourinho’s side back in January while the match at Old Trafford on Boxing Day finished 2-2, though the visitors were two up at half time.

You can back the away win to nil this time around at 2.5 (6/4) with most bookmakers while there is a widely available price of 2.1 (11/10) for both teams to score in the game.
