Kick-off: 1500, 02/11/2019
Stadium: Bramall Lane
Burnley have yet to win away from home this season but they have picked up three Premier League draws on the road and can claim another point at Sheffield United.
The Blades have only lost to Liverpool in their last five top-flight fixtures and are full of confidence, but the Clarets have the style to be competitive at Bramall Lane.
Punters can get 11/5 for a stalemate here and that is our opening Sheff Utd vs Burnley prediction.
A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds
United secured a memorable success over Arsenal in their last home match and battled hard for away draws at Watford and West Ham either side of that victory.
Lys Mousset’s second-half volley helped the Blades to come from behind and draw 1-1 against the Hammers, while David McGoldrick and George Baldock also tested home keeper Roberto.
Manager Chris Wilder said: “I don’t think we had the attributes to win a Premier League match in the first half, but we did in the second. I thought we had the game in our hands.
“We’ve been positive in our approach all season. Sometimes we don’t play well, but we always have a positive approach.”
This has all the makings of a blood and guts affair and 7/2 for a score draw stands out from the Sheff Utd vs Burnley odds.
Last United line-up: Henderson, Baldock, Stevens, O’Connell, Basham, Egan, Fleck, Lundstram, Norwood, Robinson, McGoldrick.
United have a couple of unnamed players nursing knocks but boss Chris Wilder said he was hopeful they would be fit for selection. Mousset is pushing for a return to the starting line-up.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley are coming off back-to-back losses but they were against two red-hot teams in Leicester and Chelsea.
The Clarets can take heart from having led for a while away to the Foxes before going down 2-1.
They also deserve credit for not giving up when outclassed by the Blues, with late goals from Jay Rodriguez and Dwight McNeil salvaging some pride in a 4-2 home defeat.
Ashley Barnes had earlier wasted a number of opportunities and Sean Dyche declared: “It was an odd night in that I don’t think there was too much in the game, especially in the first half.
“At four, it certainly didn’t feel like a 0-4 game, because we created some really good chances and that’s pleasing.”
Burnley are unbeaten in six games against teams outside of the top five this term, including away draws at Wolves, Brighton and Aston Villa.
The first two of those stalemates finished 1-1 and 11/2 for a repeat of that scoreline at Bramall Lane completes our Sheff Utd vs Burnley betting tips.
Last Burnley line-up: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters, Cork, McNeil, Hendrick, Westwood, Barnes, Rodriguez.
Burnley striker Chris Wood is touch and go with the hamstring problem that ruled him out of last weekend’s defeat by Chelsea.
Defender Phil Bardsley (back) is also a major doubt, while winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson (hamstring) is definitely sidelined.
West Ham 1-1 SHEFF UTD – Lys Mousset
BURNLEY 2-4 Chelsea – Jay Rodriguez, Dwight McNeil
