Marcelo Bielsa's Whites are hovering around the even money mark and a best priced 5-4 whereas Sean Dyche's hosts can be backed at bigger than 2-1 and a best available 40-17.

The draw is on offer at 14-5 whilst Burnley s Chris Wood and United's Patrick Bamford not surprisingly dominate the first scorer market.

The various bookmakers have differing opinions over who should be favourite out of the duo to net the game's opener but both are available at 5-1 at the head of the market.

United's record signing Rodrigo is next at 15-2, followed by Burnley duo Matej Vydra and Ashley Barnes who are both 8s.

Fellow Clarets forward Jay Rodriguez is next at 17-2, followed by Whites winger Raphinha at 9s, the same price as Burnley's Lewis Richardson.

Leeds duo Jack Harrison and Pablo Hernandez are then both 10s, the same odds as Joel Mumbongo who is a slightly shorter price than Tyler Roberts (21-2).

Ian Poveda (12s) is next whilst Stuart Dallas, Mateusz Klich and no goalscorer are all 14s.

A 1-1 draw is favourite in the correct score market at 37-5 but a 2-1 win for Burnley is the only outcome involving a Clarets win in the top six of that particular market.

A 2-1 triumph for Leeds is second favourite as the correct score at 19-2 with United expected to be too good for Burnley amidst the intriguing battle of Bamford against Wood.
