Sheffield United vs Burnley Prediction & Match Preview

Sheffield United vs Burnley
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 2 November 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane (Sheffield).

Sheffield may be the new kid in the block, but there’s no denying the form, and level of competitiveness they have brought to the best league in the world. Especially commendable is their prowess at the back. As of now, the team has conceded the least number of goals in the contest, on par with the likes of Liverpool, and Leicester.

Coupling home advantage to this, the Blades should not be troubled much by Burnley this Saturday. Take into account the kind of performances the Clarets have been showing on the road, and it’s building up to be a good day at the office for the hosts.

Sheffield United vs Burnley Prediction

The Clarets were destroyed at home the last day by the Blues. One after the other, the guests netted four goals in a row, and only when the visitors had been sure of a victory did they loosen the noose a bit, for the hosts to chip in with two of their own.

Meanwhile, the Blades showed conviction in withstanding the immense pressure put forth by the Gunners, to post a narrow, hard-fought 1-0 win on the board.

Considering form, Dyche’s men were winless in eight of their preceding ten match-ups and had lost their last two. They had also conceded twice or more in five of their former eight games as well. Importantly, on the road, the team is completely winless this campaign and has failed to keep a single clean sheet in the process as well.

On the other hand, Sheffield is unbeaten in their last three overall fixtures and had remained unbeaten in 14 of their last 20 at home. Of these 14, 13 were wins as well.

As such, the home team should make it through the weekend without much incident.

In regards to goals, the stupendous defense of the Blades, should persuade them to go after a narrow win, rather than a goal-rout, and jeopardize their chances. Likely, the affair should turn out to be a low-scoring one.
