Here’s a first of its kind on our platform – football fantasy sports preview. Fantasy sports is booming all over the world anyway, so why not? Today, Premier League fans will be very excited to know that there is weekday action and one of the biggest games of the night will be Manchester United vs Burnley, being played at 1:30am at the Old Trafford Stadium.
Manchester United is running on an extreme high at the moment and you can understand why, with eight consecutive wins ever since Ole Gunnar Solksjaer signed on as their new manager. For sports betting, there’s not a lot of value in this game but with fantasy sports, there’s always a chance to cash in big.
First things first. Who’s available and who’s not? Marcos Rojo and Marouane Fellaini are still unavailable for the hosts so make sure they aren’t a part of your side, while Scott McTominay is fit, so he could be a cheaper, valuable pick in your fantasy eleven. Spend that extra budget on David de Gea, who is undoubtedly one of the best goal-keepers in the world at the moment.
Quite a few solid points to keep an eye out for while selecting your Manchester United vs Burnley fantasy sports teams. While they’ve only dropped 5 points in their last 5 Premier League games, they recently took a 0-5 thrashing against Manchester City in the FA Cup. However, they are three points clear of relegation and can play with some ease.
Aaron Lennon and Robbie Brady are surely out of tonight’s game while Matt Lowton is another doubtful starter. I’d try to take up some mid-fieder spots for Burnley as tonight may be a goal-fest for United, which means picking Burnley defenders could cost you some loss of points. Go with a 7-4 United team and make both strikers your captains.
