Manchester United are trying to right the ship, so a trip to Burnley to face the winless Clarets on Saturday in an English Premier League match could do them some good. The hosts, however, hope to take advantage of a weary and banged-up Red Devils side that has lost three of its past four league matches. The visitors also come off a grueling 4-3 road loss in the Champions League against Bayern Munich on Wednesday. United finished third in the Premier League table last season but are 2-0-3 so far. Burnley spent last season in the Championship and are 0-1-3 on their return after a 1-1 road draw with Nottingham Forest on Monday.

Why you should back Manchester United
The Red Devils have dominated the hosts, going 5-2-0 in the past seven visits to Turf Moor and 10-4-1 in the past 15 overall. With players like Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes leading the attack, United are always a danger to score a lot of goals. Rashford scored 17 last season, and Fernandes had eight goals and eight assists. Both are off to slow starts, with one goal and one assist apiece, but Burnley have conceded a league-high 12 goals, so they could come alive Saturday.
The United back line has struggled, mostly because of injuries, but the Clarets have just four goals in their four matches. The hosts gave up 11 goals when faced with quality competition in their first three matches. The campaign started with a 3-0 setback to Manchester City, followed by a 3-1 loss to Aston Villa and a 5-2 thrashing at the hands of Tottenham. All three losses were at Turf Moor. United have lost both road matches, but those came in tough venues against Arsenal (3-1) and Spurs (2-0). See which team to pick here.
Why you should back Burnley
The Clarets should have a little bit of confidence after a road draw, and United are in a bit of disarray. The Red Devils have given up 10 goals in league play, and the attack hasn't been clicking. Burnley have some young attacking talent in Zeki Amdouni and Luca Koleosho, and goalkeeper James Trafford is expected to be a future star. Amdouni had the goal against Forest and scored in a 1-0 EFL Cup victory against the Tricky Trees on Aug. 30. Koleosho, 19, has one assist.
Manager Vincent Kompany is having some trouble getting the defense in line. Still, the longtime Man City defender and captain will have his players prepared. The home crowd should give the Clarets a boost, and with United coming off a midweek match, the hosts will have a clear fitness advantage. See which team to pick here.
