New Year, Same Old Burnley
The Clarets' Boxing Day display at Old Trafford shows these underdogs aren't fading away any time soon.
It’s remarkable that Burnley can be close to 2/1 at home in the double chance market. BetFair go a best price 7/4 on their New Year’s Day clash with Liverpool ending in either a Clarets’ victory or a draw.
Yes the Merseysiders are on excellent form themselves, but they failed to beat these same stubborn opponents even at Anfield.
Sean Dyche’s side have only lost 5 of their 21 top flight matches this season which tells us what value we have here without even delving deeper. But when you consider how cruelly they were denied in injury time at home to Arsenal it looks even stronger.
Chelsea, Man Utd, Spurs and Liverpool have all dropped points to this surprise package already and the Reds only arrive at Turf Moor three places higher in the table.
