Clarets Can Get Off the Mark at Forest

  • September 18, 2023

Burnley have had a tough start to life back in the Premier League with matches against champions Manchester City, resurgent Tottenham Hotspur and a solid Aston Villa side led by the crafty Unai Emery.

That’s left them pointless after three games, second bottom of the table and looking up.

It’ll be a source of frustration for Vincent Kompany that his side were denied the chance to get some points on the on board against fellow promoted side Luton Town after their game was postponed, but tonight presents an opportunity to show what they’re capable of.

The Clarets won at Nottingham Forest a matter of weeks ago, a 1-0 victory in the Carabao Cup which, by all accounts, was a pretty drab affair, so they’ll go to the City Ground with some confidence despite their lowly league position.

Forest will be pleased with their start to the season, six points from a possible 12 including an elusive away win. That came against a listless Chelsea whilst the other win was against Sheffield United who have picked up just a point from their opening five matches.

Home advantage sees the Tricky Trees at 23/20 to win with the visitors at 23/10. Ideally we’d want a little bit bigger on Burnley but it could be best to take them in the Draw No Bet market where they’re 11/8.

Kompany’s men were famed for their possession-based football last season and they’ve fared pretty well in their four games against Premier League opposition. Only Manchester City have dominated possession against them but Burnley won the corner count that day (6-5), as was the case against Spurs (7-4) and the meeting with Forest at the City Ground (9-3).

They’re 21/20 to win the corner match bet but it could be better to side with them to take five or more at 8/11 or six or more at 11/8 – something they’ve done in three of their four outings.
