In confident spirits after their big Boxing Day win, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Red Devils to come out on top over Dyche's men yet again at Turf Moor

Manchester United will be aiming to close the gap on the top four when they travel to Turf Moor to take on Burnley on Saturday.

The Red Devils’ 4-1 Boxing Day victory over Newcastle saw them move to within four points of four-placed Chelsea, who are not in action until Sunday.

Burnley vs Manchester United Latest Odds

Unbeaten in nine league matches against this opposition, they are priced at 17/20 (1.85) with 888Sport to move to within a point of the Champions League places by coming out on top here.

Sean Dyche’s team fell to a 1-0 defeat at Everton in their last clash, but can be backed at 16/5 (4.20) to bounce back with a shock victory.

The sides shared a 2-2 draw when they last met back in January, and you can get odds of 11/4 (3.75) on this one also finishing up all square.

Burnley vs Manchester United Team News

Aaron Lennon and Ben Gibson are both doubtful for the hosts, although Jeff Hendrick is available once again following suspension.

Scott McTominay is a doubt after coming off at half-time versus Newcastle with a knock, while Eric Bailly, Diogo Dalot, Marcos Rojo and Timothy Fosu-Mensah all remain injured. Paul Pogba could make his first start since September.

Burnley vs Manchester United Preview

Despite their inconsistent form this campaign, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men must feel confident of collecting maximum points here following their emphatic win over Newcastle.

Having come out on top in each of their last three visits to this ground without conceding a goal, they will certainly back themselves to prove too strong for a Clarets team that has lost four of its last six games - scoring just three goals.

Burnley vs Manchester United Tips and Predictions

All in all, those 17/20 (1.85) odds are surely worth backing on a Manchester United team that has only lost one league game in eight extending their encouraging run by securing a fourth consecutive victory at Burnley.
