Burnley vs Man Utd Tips; Hojlund to score or assist and goals on the cards at Turf Moor

Burnley vs Manchester United football betting tips;  These two teams are in desperate need of a confidence boost when they meet at Turf Moor on Saturday night. Burnley are yet to win this season, and Manchester United have had a poor start and as a result, the pressure is starting to build on Erik ten Hag.

  • Who - Burnley vs Manchester United 
  • Competition - 2023/24 English Premier League 
  • Where - Turf Moor, Burnley, England 
  • When - Saturday, 23rd September, 2023
  • Time - 8 pm BST

The Clarets are yet to win this season with just one point from their opening four games. In fairness, Vincent Kompany's team has had some tough opponents to play this season. 

At Turf Moor, the Clarets have lost 3-0 to Man City, 3-1 to Aston Villa and 5-2 to Tottenham. Their only point came on the road last Monday, where they managed a 1-1 draw away to Nottingham Forest. 

Where do we start with Manchester United? Six points from five games, and already a goal difference of -4.

Bizarrely, the Red Devils have arguably performed better in two of the three matches they have lost, than the two they have won. 

The wins over Wolves and Nottingham Forest were scratchy at best. But in the defeats to Spurs and Arsenal, Ten Hag's team played quite well and can consider themselves unlucky. 

The problem for Erik ten Hag is that the 3-1 defeat to Brighton was a shocker of a performance. And this was compounded by the 4-3 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday.

For now, the Glazers are taking the heat off the Dutchman. But that won't last forever.

Burnley vs. Man Utd Betting Tips

The Clarets have scored in every match this season except for their opening fixture against Manchester City. Vincent Kompany looks like he isn’t prepared to sacrifice his footballing principles, and that suggests goals in this match (along with relegation in the long run). 

The best football betting sites had Burnley at 7/1 to beat Manchester City on the opening weekend of the season. The same betting sites make them 11/4 against United, highlighting the difference in quality between the two Manchester clubs.

We can’t pick a Burnley win in our football betting tips, even given how bad Manchester United have been this season. 

Over 2.5 goals is 4/6, and we are making that our first selection in our Bet Builder. The Clarets are open, have a goal in them, and are more likely to concede more than they score. Over 3.5 goals is tempting but we’ll play safer this weekend. 

Rasmus Hojlund is 6/5 to score or assist. The Dane looked sharp against Bayern Munich on Wednesday, and also scored his first goal for his new team. He was probably their only bright spot on the night. 

Combined in a BetBuilder, the two bets pay 2.69/1, which would see a return of 26.90 for a £10 bet.
