“This will be Bournemouth’s 18th away match against Burnley in all competitions, only winning one of the previous 17 (D6 L10), a 2-1 victory on the final day of the 2017-18 Premier League campaign thanks to a 93rd minute Callum Wilson goal.”

Burnley have been in decent form of late, especially from a defensive perspective. Backing the hosts at 1.674/6 in the Draw No Bet market seems a safe investment.

Competitive match at Old Trafford
