“Burnley” vs. “Sheffield United”: how many goals will the opponents score?

In one of the matches of the 16th round of the Premier League on Tuesday, December 29, Burnley will host Sheffield United - we assessed the opponents' chances of success and made a prediction.


In the last round "Burgundy-shirts" made unsuccessful visit to "Leeds". It is not to say that “Burnley” looked hopeless, but, having conceded at the beginning of the game, the team could not find approaches to the “peacocks'” goal.

This defeat interrupted Burnley's unbeaten streak in the championship; the team had won in four matches in a row. During this period, Sean Ditch's guys beat quite serious opponents - Arsenal (1:0) and Wolverhampton (2:1), and also ended in a draw with Everton (1:1) and Aston Villa (0:0), who are also not the worst teams in the current championship.

The "Burgundy-shirts" left the relegation zone thanks to this successful segment of the championship. Even the defeat from the "peacocks" did not throw them back into the danger zone. Although the distance to the "red" line is only two steps.

“Burnley” has scored points in three of six home games. And he replenished his scores baggage just in three previous matches. Although it should be noted that Sean Deich's wards have low performance in the home arena. They have scored just four times in six home games, which is their worst record in the Premier League.

Jack Cork will definitely not be able to take part in the match due to injury. The participation of Dwight McNeil, Robbie Brady, Matej Otter and Johan Gudmundsson is questionable.
