The stats behind our Sheffield United vs Burnley predictions:

  • Both teams have scored in five of Burnley’s last seven Premier League away games.
  • Sheffield United are winless in eight (three draws) while Burnley are on a four-game run without a win (three draws).
  • Sheffield United have conceded the first goal in six of their last seven Premier League home games.

A relegation must-win

Games at the bottom of the table don’t get much bigger than this. Sheffield United have six games left to play in the Premier League this season, and they’re rooted to the bottom of the table. The Blades are 10 points from safety and running out of time. It’s now eight matches for Sheffield United since they last won, beating fellow relegation candidates Luton in February.

That winless run has seen Sheffield United lose five and draw three, but they have faced Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal, rescuing a draw at the death against the Blues. But the Blades were unable to build on that, losing 2-0 to Brentford last time out.

Burnley are in a slightly more promising position, but they are still facing a battle against time. The Clarets are six points from safety but only have five matches left to play. They have won one more game that Sheffield United, last beating Brentford 2-1 in March. And while they haven’t won since, Burnley have only lost once. That defeat came to Everton, and perhaps was the most significant result as it came against a fellow relegation battler.

But Burnley have also drawn against Chelsea, Brighton and Wolves, so they are at least picking up points. However, time is running out for them to start getting wins.

A hard game to call, Burnley are the slight favourites for this match, largely as they sit above Sheffield United in the table. They have also won one more game and fair pretty well on the road, compared to their home record at least.
