The Premier League returns on Tuesday night and Manchester United have the chance to go three points clear at the top with a win at Burnley.
It’s a remarkable turnaround considering the knives were out for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in some quarters earlier in the season. Incredibly all six of United’s away league wins this campaign have come after they conceded the opening goal and they’re 6/1 to win from behind at Turf Moor.
Burnley have won only one of their last 25 Premier League home fixtures against established top-six opposition (D4, L20) and are 13/2 to take the three points. United look a bit on the short side at 2/5 but punters have profited from penalties in their games this season. It’s 3/1 for United to score one and regualr taker Bruno Fernandes, who has scored 11 goals this season is 11/10 anytime.
Also in the Premier League Everton travel to Wolves and a win for the Toffees would take up to fourth, level on points with Leicester City. They’ve picked up 16 points from 24 on their travels so won’t be without their backers at 21/10. Wolves have won just one in seven and been relatively disappointing by comparison to the heights of last season, they’re 11/8 to win at Molineux.
In the early kick-off (6.00pm) Sheffield United, still looking for their first league win of the season, host Newcastle at Bramall Lane. The Blades plotted a route past Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup at the weekend but league form doesn’t suggest they should be 7/5 favourites here. The Toon can be backed at 21/10 and although they’ve not won since December 12 they’ve come through a tough run of fixtures over the Christmas period against Liverpool, Leicester, Man City anad Arsenal in the FA Cup.
In Scotland, they’ll attempt to play Saturday’s postponed match at Tannadice again. As mentioned at the weekend there was nothing to suggest why St Johnstone are priced up 19/20 favourites here. The Saints haven’t won in 9 league matches and Dundee United‘s home record stands up to scrutiny on their return to the top flight. Defeats have come against Rangers, Celtic and Hibs but outwith that they’ve taken 16 points from 24 at Tannadice.
Meanwhile all the re-scheduled Scottish Cup matches have been put on ice, this time at the request of the government who have suspended lower league football below the Championship in Scotland.
Across Europe there’s a smattering of games in La Liga, the German DFB Pokal and Coppa Italia. SlipsTips has dug out a BetBuilder for the match in Milan where Torino are the visitors and we’ve two match previews from the Premier League.
