Sheffield Utd vs Burnley: Preview and Prediction

England Premier League
Sunday 23rd May 2021
Kick off at 4pm BST
Venue: Bramall Lane

Match Preview:

Sheffield United cannot finish any higher than bottom but they will try to go out with a bang at home in front of some of their own fans before they bid farewell to the Premier League.

The Blades have lost 3 of their last four games coming into this one and last week they were defeated 1-0 by Newcastle. Form for the club compared to the overall season hasn’t been too bad with 2 wins from their last five games but at home they have lost 13 games and scored just 11 times. One could suspect that the Blades will fancy their chances in this game though and try to end their season with victory.

Burnley are in 17th but of course have been fine for a long time and are 11 points in front of the bottom three. Sean Dyche’s team come here having lost their last two games against Liverpool and Leeds respectively where they conceded 7 goals and scored zero. However at the moment the club seem to prefer playing away from home and have won their last two games on the road, these were against Wolves and Fulham.

 

Team News: 

Sheffield United: George Baldock will be assessed because of his hamstring, Sander Berge faces a late test on his muscle injury.

Burnley: Nick Pope could return from a knee injury. Phillip Bardsley, Kevin Long and Robert Brady are all out long term.

Burnley haven’t won at Sheffield United since 2008.

 

Sheffield Utd vs Burnley Prediction:

Expect a close game but it is hard to go against the home side as they will try their best, almost a sense of forgiveness to their fans for the season they have had to endure and now they will see the team live in the flesh. This will mean or should mean a lot to the Blades and so we will put our trust in them to get the right result.

For good value we will also back the correct score at full time. This match should be a good one if both teams can relax and enjoy their football but with so many more important games to focus on for Sunday this could be a forgotten one.
