Check our Bet Boosts as the domestic calendar recommences with the fourth round of the EFL Cup, with Manchester United v Burnley headlining Wednesday's action.
We’ve BOOSTED the prices on selected markets for all three EFL Cup fixtures on Wednesday, including Manchester United’s return to action against Championship high-flyers Burnley.
The Clarets, who are 6/1 to win in normal time, make the short journey to Old Trafford desperate to maintain their outstanding run of form under boss Vincent Kompany and send the Red Devils packing from a competition they have won on five occasions.
There is no doubt that the Clarets are going to have to go some to do so however, with Erik ten Hag’s men unbeaten in six on home soil since early September, having won five of those games including the last four.
Typically, you’d fully expect United to see off Championship opposition, but given the break, coupled with Burnley’s continued activity and superb form, the underdogs will most definitely have their backers at 11/4 to qualify for the next round by any means.
That said, United, 2/5 in the ‘Full Time Result’ market, will be determined to continue from where they left off prior to the World Cup break having notched successive victories over Aston Villa in this very competition and Fulham in the Premier League.
Half Time Result: Manchester United – Full Time Result: Manchester United
Anthony Martial to Score Anytime in the Match
Over 3 Goals in the Match
Was 5/1 >> Now 6/1
Backing up the BOOST:
The Red Devils have, for the best part, been defensively sound on home turf this season, conceding just two goals in their last six outings at HQ – both of which came against Aston Villa in their last EFL Cup fixture (a 4-2 victory).
If the home side can get an early breakthrough on Wednesday then it could open the floodgates for more, with Burnley showing a far greater desire to press forward under Kompany than they did under Sean Dyche – thus leaving them more susceptible to the counter.
Two of United’s last three fixtures in all competitions have featured over three goals too, with their 4-2 EFL Cup success over Unai Emery’s Aston Villa coming hot-on-the-heels of a 3-1 league defeat against the same opposition.
And in Anthony Martial the Red Devils possess the talents of a player who, on his day, is undoubtedly up there amongst Europe’s elite.
Fresh from an extended break, after being overlooked for international duty by Didier Deschamps, the frontman will want to extend his recent goalscoring form, having netted four times in his six matches since returning from injury.
Alejandro Garnacho – To Score at Any Time
Was 15/8 >> Now 21/10
Backing up the BOOST:
The teenage sensation is expected to get minutes under his belt in this fixture with a number of United’s alternative attacking options, including Marcus Rashford and Antony, likely to be rested following their exploits at the World Cup.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure will also have served to elevate the 18-year-old further up the pecking order too, and we have boosted him to net a goal at any time against the Clarets to 21/10.
The young Argentine has made a seamless transition to first-team football over the past few months, and made his biggest impression to date in his last outing prior to the winter break – netting a stunning last minute winner against Fulham to secure United three crucial Premier League points.
Our Winnings Boost is also available on this fixture, meaning you can land an additional 25% on top of your winnings if your Bet Builder is successful.
