Burnley To Frustrate Tired United At Turf Moor
Manchester United face a tricky trip to Turf Moor for Sunday afternoon's live Premier League game on Sky Sports and we fully expect Burnley to make life difficult for their near-neighbours in the North West...
- Burnley are yet to be behind at half-time in their 16 home league games
- 15 of Burnley's past 17 matches have been level at half-time, with 11 of those involving a 0-0 score at the half-time whistle
- Burnley have won 1 of their past 10 league outings overall - Drawn 4, Lost 5

It is no surprise to see that United are 13/20 favourites for the win after going unbeaten in 22 league games and Jose Mourinho's men are now just seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, who they actually meet this coming Thursday.
The games are coming thick and fast for United though as they head to Turf Moor off the back of Thursday night's draining Europa League game at Old Trafford, where they eventually overcame Anderlecht after extra-time.
That European fixture will have taken plenty out of a United side that will be playing their fifth game in fourteen days on Sunday and there could even be some value in backing Burnley to get something out of this, with Betfred going 10/3 about the home win with 'draw no bet'.
Draw No Bet Odds:
Sean Dyche's side, who need just four points to reach that magic 40-point safety mark, are a very decent proposition at home as they have beaten Everton, Liverpool and Southampton, as well as drawn with Chelsea, at Turf Moor this season and they have collected 89% of their points on home soil.
The Clarets' away record makes for quite dreadful reading but they are such a tough nut to crack at home, where they are yet to be behind at half-time in their sixteen games!
The half-time draw can be backed at 6/5 (Bet 365) and that can be boosted by a punt on the half-time correct score of 0-0 (17/10 with Bet Victor).
Indeed, Burnley have gone in level at the half-time whistle in fifteen of their last seventeen league outings overall, including in the last nine in a row, and there hasn't been a single first-half goal scored in their past five.
Half-Time Result Odds:
Burnley are mroe than capable of keeping things tight, as evidenced by 69% of their home league fixtures going under 2.5 goals (7/10 with Bet Victor), and this could be a frustrating afternoon for the visiting Red Devils, who have won just two of the last five Burnley v Man Utd fixtures (drawn two, lost one), with Dyche's men sure to take confidence from the goalless draw they earned at Old Trafford in October.
