The visitors are odds on to secure a much-needed victory over the Clarets but the ongoing issues within the squad means they should be opposed

Burnley's exit from the final Europa League qualification round would have been a blow for Clarets fans.

The lack of midweek football could have a positive impact on their Premier League form though, with Sean Dyche's side able to focus on the kind of performances that saw them finish in 7th place last term.

Sunday sees Manchester United visit Turf Moor and 888Sport make the away win a 11/17 (1.65) shot currently but that appears pretty short.

Burnley for their part are priced at 24/5 (5.80) to come out on top while the draw is available at 14/5 (3.80) with the same firm.

Backing Jose Mourinho's side at heavy odds on quotes on the road in the Premier League is a tough sell at the moment.

Defensively the Red Devils look in poor shape, Mourinho has chopped and changed his backline in recent games but to no avail and they’ve now conceded seven times in three matches. Furthermore, that lack of confidence seems to be affecting those in other areas of the pitch too.

Tottenham were ruthless in taking advantage of these lapses on Monday night and while Burnley don't possess the same level of attacking talent, they know how to frustrate more illustrious opposition.

Last season Dyche's men took points off Manchester City, United, Tottenham, Liverpool and Chelsea. Their form this year has left plenty to be desired, but the visitors' issues mean opposing an away win is the best way to go in terms of a potential wager.

888Sport are current an industry-best price of 13/10 (2.30) on Burnley/Draw in the double chance market which will be settled as a winner if the Clarets avoid defeat.

With no end in sight for the issues dogging Mourinho's men, the opportunity to oppose them at this kind of price looks a great opportunity for punters ahead of Sunday's clash.
