Manchester United go in search of their first 3 points of the season in Saturday’s early game but it will be a tough test away to Burnley. We have free football betting tips.
Live on BT Sport at 12:45, Manchester United will be hoping to regroup after their midweek humiliation at the hands of MK Dons. With Van Gaal in charge fans were expectant for the season ahead but it has been far from what they expected so far. The opening day defeat against Swansea showed huge issues with the squad and things weren’t much better as they drew 1-1 with Sunderland last weekend. The cherry on top of the cake was the 4-0 defeat to League 1 side MK Dons on Tuesday, it hasn’t been a great start.
Angel Di Maria has now joined up though and the £60 million man does give fans some room for optimism but reinforcements still seem necessary throughout the squad if there is to be a successful campaign.
Burnley were many people’s pre-season favourites for the drop and have struggled so far – albeit in two tricky fixtures. The Clarets lead briefly in their opener against Chelsea before succumbing 3-1 and Burnley more than troubled Swansea last week but just couldn’t find the net as they lost 1-0. They also exited the cup to lower league opposition as they lost 1-0 to Sheffield Wednesday. There are positive signs at Turf Moor but the squad does still lack depth and quality and it appears they also need to sign players if they are to meet their survival target this season.
The Turf Moor crowd will once again be up for it and many fans will be aware last time Burnley met Manchester United at home they pulled off a 1-0 win, with Manchester United struggling to get going surely they have a slight chance again.
The bookies have given little value whatsoever on Manchester United as they are best price 13/20 with William Hill while the draw is 3/1 with Bet365 and a Burnley win is 11/2 with Betfred if you are tempted to back the Clarets.
I don’t fancy Manchester United at that price and I’m not quite confident enough the Clarets can spring the upset. However I do fancy the Clarets to find the net early on. Manchester United have conceded a first half goal in each of their games this season while Burnley started brightly in their last home game against Chelsea. Burnley to Score a first half goal is 19/10 with William Hill is my first tip here.
To go with this though I can’t see the Clarets keeping a clean sheet against Rooney, Di Maria and co. So both teams to score is a bet worth placing at 10/11 also with William Hill.
