Sheffield United vs Burnley
Date: Saturday, 5 November 2022
Kick-off at 13:30 UK / 14:30 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane.
Two back-to-back victories have helped Sheffield reach the third position. Now they will face league leaders Burnley at Bramall Lane on matchday 19.
Paul Heckingbottom’s side are slowly making progress following their abysmal form last month. In their most recent outing, they defeated Bristol City by 1-0. It was Iliman Ndiaye who scored the only goal in that game. He deserves a lot of credit for his team winning two consecutive games.
On the other hand, Burnley showed their strength when they defeated two top teams namely Reading and Norwich City. In the game against Reading it was Anass Zaroury who scored a last-minute winning goal.
Presently, they have the best form in the league this season. This upcoming game will be a litmus test for the visitors to see if they are in the title race or not.
Do note that both teams are separated by three points ahead of this fixture.
Things are not looking good back at Bramall Lane, the home team despite the support of the crowd have won only one of their last five home matches. In their most recent game at Bramall Lane, they were held by Norwich in a 2-2 thriller.

Sheffield United vs Burnley Prediction
We can expect both teams to play defensively as they will look to avoid losing any more points.
You can back the following as our first prediction is that Burnley will win by 1-0 – at 9.50 odd. Despite having a good record against Burnley, we have to consider that the host are not the same team anymore. It has been over two months since the last time they celebrated a league victory at Bramall Lane.
Moreover, our next tip for this game is that Burnley will keep a clean sheet – at 3.50 odd. The visitors have kept a clean sheet when both these teams met in 2020.
