Burnley vs Sheffield United Prediction


Burnley have improved in recent weeks, while Sheffield United look doomed to return to the Championship.

  • Burnley have won 2 of their last 3 home matches (English Premier League).
  • Burnley have seen under 2.5 goals in 8 of their last 11 home matches (English Premier League).
  • Sheffield United have lost 16 of their last 18 matches (English Premier League).
  • Sheffield United have lost 8 of their last 9 away matches (English Premier League).

Head to Head


Sheffield United have 50 wins in this fixture compared to Burnley’s 43. There have also been 32 draws played out between the teams.

Burnley have already beaten the Blades this season, knocking them out of the League Cup in September.

Burnley Form


Burnley’s improved form now sees them sat out of the relegation zone in 17th place in the Premier League table.

The Clarets went four games unbeaten with wins over Arsenal and Wolves and draws against Everton and Aston Villa before facing Leeds last time out.

Burnley lost 1-0 at Elland Road but were unfortunate to do so after controversially having a goal of their own ruled out for a questionable foul on Islan Meslier.

Sheffield United Form


It’s been a desperately poor season for Sheffield United who look set for relegation back to the Championship.

The Blades are already 11 points adrift from safety and have just two points to their name after 15 matches.

Last time out, Sheffield United lost 1-0 to Everton on Boxing Day after Gylfi Sigurdsson’s 80th minute winner.

Team News


Burnley are without Jack Cork, Robbie Brady, Dwight McNeil, Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Matej Vydra through injury.

Sheffield United are missing Jack O’Connell, Kean Bryan, Sander Berge, John Lundstram and Oliver Burke.
