Burnley v Sheffield United Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 3pm, Saturday 30th November 2023

 

Both Burnley and Sheffield United will be eager to bounce back from home defeats when they go head-to-head with each other at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.

Burnley let slip a one-goal lead when losing 2-1 at home to West Ham United in their last outing and Vincent Kompany’s side will be desperate to bounce back by claiming all three points on Saturday afternoon and put to an end a seven-game losing run. The Clarets have got their campaign off to a dreadful start and broke the unwanted record of being the first side ever to lose their opening six home matches in a Premier League season. Kompany doesn’t appear to be in danger of the sack just yet but his job could well be on the line should his side fall to an eighth successive home defeat in the top-flight this weekend. Nevertheless, the visit of fellow strugglers Sheffield United gives the Lancashire side an opportunity to end this dreadful run and the main aim here for the home side will be to avoid another defeat at all costs.

Sheffield United boss Paul Heckingbottom is favourite to be the next top-flight managerial sacking of the season and he was forced to listen to a loud chorus of boos and other less than savoury chants after his men were thumped 3-1 at home by Bournemouth last time out. The Blades are leaking goals by an average of just over 2.5 per game and no clean sheets have been forthcoming in the Premier League this term, while the South Yorkshire side have found the net just four times on their travels, less than any other Premier League side.

In reality, a win isn’t beyond either of teams in this encounter but both Vincent Kompany and Paul Heckingbottom are only too aware that their jobs could be on the line should their side fail to take any points here. This will almost certainly be a cagey affair and while we envisage the Clarets ending their losing home run here, the visitors are more than capable of taking a point back home with them.
