Burnley vs Sheffield United Prediction & Match Preview

Burnley vs Sheffield United
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 29 December 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor.


Tuesday’s football game at Turf Moor pits together Burnley and Sheffield United, the two teams who are fighting hard to survive in the Premier League.

Following a 2-1 win over Wolverhampton, the Clarets suffered a 1-0 loss at Leeds United, with the team remaining only two points clear of the relegation zone.

Burnley are eyeing their third home win of the season, and they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the English top flight.

The Blades, on the other hand, are having a season to forget. The rock-bottom side have collected only two points in total from possible 45, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in the last game of the year.

Burnley have been producing fine displays at home of late, and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field.

Team News:

This is the second of three games in a week for Burnley so Dyche is expected to make a change or two to his starting lineup.

Dale Stephens made his first appearance in nearly two months as a second-half substitute against Leeds and is pushing for inclusion here.

Striker Jay Rodriguez is another who will be hopeful of earning a place in the XI at the expense of Ashley Barnes or Chris Wood, while Dwight McNeil's fitness is being monitored.

As for the visitors, Oli Burke and Ben Osborn replaced John Fleck and John Lundstram for the defeat to Everton, with the latter still suspended for this game.

Oli McBurnie has been nursing an injury, meaning a start for Rhian Brewster last time out, but the striker was brought off the bench and may return to the side here.

Lys Mousset and Oliver Norwood are other possible options should Wilder wish to rotate his side.

Burnley possible starting lineup:
Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Brady, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil; Barnes, Wood

Sheffield United possible starting lineup:
Ramsdale; Basham, Egan, Robinson; Baldock, Osborn, Ampadu, Fleck, Lowe; McGoldrick, McBurnie
