Burnley v Man Utd

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Burnley shipped 14 goals at home last season, no Championship team let in fewer
Expert verdict
Manchester United look a fair price to seize three points but are unlikely to find Burnley at Turf Moor as easy to cut through as Chelsea did on the opening weekend. The Clarets face a battle to stay up, but they’re better at the back than they showed against the Blues and can keep this close.
