Match Preview and Predictions

  • Two straight 1-0 wins have propelled Burnley into the top half of the Premier League (PL) and turned them into European spot contenders. In fact, they’ve lost just one of their last eight PL games (W4, D3, L1), keeping five clean sheets across that run – three of those in front of their own fans.
  • Kings of the late win, Burnley have gone on to win nine of the 15 PL matches in which they were drawing at HT – more than any other side. It’s not all good news though, as they’ve scored a paltry three first-half goals from their last 20 PL matches! As a result, their five first-half leads ahead of this round is a joint PL low.
  • Sheffield United turned their recent form upside down by winning 3-1 in the previous round – after losing 3-0 in the two preceding PL matches. Yet whilst those three matches featured over 2.5 goals, that happened just once in the 13 league matches prior.
  • Away from home, Sheffield United are by some margin the stingiest side in the league, with their matches featuring just 1.94 total goals on average. In that vein, just one of their last eight PL away games saw both teams score. The ‘Blades’ themselves have netted a paltry two goals across their last seven PL away matches.
  • Players to watch: With major injury problems up front, Matěj Vydra (BUR) must try to add to his two PL goals so far. Meanwhile, Lys Mousset (SHU) has scored four of his six PL goals this season during the second half.
  • Stat attack: Just one of Burnley’s last six PL matches saw both teams score.
  • All three of Burnley’s PL matches since the restart have featured under 2.5 yellow cards.
  • Sheffield United have been shown five yellow cards since the restart – 1.25 on average per PL match.
