Sheffield United vs Burnley

Sheffield United vs

Relegated Sheffield United host Burnley on Sunday, with the visitors looking to hopefully not finish just one place above the bottom three this season. 


The Blades recorded their 29th defeat of the season midweek when they were beaten by Newcastle. The game finished 1-0, with Sheffield United showing once again their reason for going down is a lack of quality in front of goal.

Sheffield United are playing their final game in the Premier League for at least a year on Sunday. They have had a very disappointing year, especially when you compare it to last season when they finished ninth in the Premier League.

Heckingbottoms side have scored just two goals in their last six games. Against Burnley, it’s never easy to score and Sheffield United are going to have to do what they’ve not done all season and take their chances.


The Clarets have lost four out of their last six games. Liverpool beat them 3-0 midweek which will have disappointed manager Sean Dyche with the types of goals they gave away.

Burnley currently sit 17th in the Premier League, one point behind 16th. A win could see them overtake Brighton, but only if The Seagulls lose. Rumours are circulating that Dyche may take the Crystal Palace job, so this could be his last game.

Against Sheffield United, Burnley will be the narrow favourites due to how bad the hosts have been. Chris Wood is in fantastic form and would like to end the season with another goal.

Team News

Sharp, Berge, McBurnie, Basham and O’Connell make up Sheffield Uniteds missing players. Rodwell and Robinson are doubts.

Bardsley, Stephens, Brady and Long are all out, whilst Pope is a doubt.

Match Prediction

With the hosts now down and missing players, we are backing Burnley to add to their misery and get a win.

Odds 7/5
