Games involving Burnley and Sheffield United have regularly been low-scoring this season and we see no reason why that will change when the Clarets meet the Blades on Sunday.

Team news | League Table | Odds

At the time of writing, both teams sit in the top half of the Premier League and that’s a fantastic achievement, especially in the case of the Yorkshire club who were promoted last season and not given much of a chance when it came to staying in the top flight.

Things have been fairly tough for Chris Wilder’s side since the restart with a draw at Aston Villa being followed by heavy defeats against Sheffield United and Manchester United. They put up a decent fight against Arsenal in the FA Cup before conceding a late winner.

There will only be a short turnaround time for this clash considering that United met Tottenham on Thursday and perhaps that might be telling against a Burnley side who will have had three extra days of rest, with Sean Dyche’s team having beaten Watford and Crystal Palace in their past two matches.

They were both by a 1-0 scoreline and we could see the same thing happening against a Blades side who have regularly lacked a cutting-edge this season even if they have produced some excellent performances where the ball gets moved around at pace.

Wilder will want to recruit a more lethal striker in the summer, with the home side looking to Dwight McNeil for inspiration and we’re massively surprised that Burnley are such a big price to win this encounter.

The Clarets have won 50% of their games at Turf Moor and they have such a solid foundation by virtue of the fact that Nick Pope is operating behind that brick wall of Ben Mee and James Tarkowski.
