Burnley vs Sheffield United Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Sunday, 5 July 2020. Kick-off 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET at the Turf Moor.
The Blades seem hell-bent on making it to Europe next season, and judging their form, there might not be any stopping them. They gained a huge momentum the last game week, after thoroughly beating Jose Mourinho’s Spurs.
As of now, Chris Wilder’s men are placed seventh in the table, and considering that the sixth-placed Wolves, and the ninth-placed Arsenal are taking on each other next, a win over the Clarets will be hugely beneficial – as one of Wolves or the Gunners will surely be dropping points.
Taking into account the form of the Blades, and their recent h2h superiority over Sean Dyche’s men, a win is expected for Sheffield United.
Burnley vs Sheffield United: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 3-0 win for Wilder’s men.
- They had scored a total of eight goals from the previous three games.
- Nine of the preceding fourteen wins had gone to them as well.
- Three of the last five encounters at this venue saw the guests scoring two or more goals.
- The latest meeting at this ground ended in a 4-2 victory for the hosts.
Burnley vs Sheffield United: Prediction
The Clarets recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Crystal Palace. After a hard-fought first half, the sole goal as well as the winner had come in the 62nd minute.
In the meantime, the Blades registered a 3-1 victory at home the past game week against Tottenham. In what was essentially a must-win game, the hosts delivered, and that too against a great opposition.
And this win definitely gives them huge momentum going forward. This Sunday, they do have a great opportunity to take a step further towards their dream – a Europa ticket. Two of their direct competitors are locking horns with each other, while they themselves are taking on an easier rival.
It helps that Wilder’s men had recorded a convincing 3-0 win in the reverse fixture, and they also had scored two or more goals in the past three h2h clashes. Moreover, they had also registered nine of the last fourteen such wins, and they even had scored 2 or more goals in three of their past five visits here.
And most importantly, the Blades have a 100% winning record in Premier League fixtures, and even impressive is the fact that they are yet to concede a goal in a PL match-up against this opponent.
Considering these observations, expect Sheffield United to win this Sunday.
