THE PREDICTION

Both of these teams are coming off good wins as Sheffield United finally got their first win under their belts since the restart by outplaying Spurs in midweek. Burnley are in good form themselves as they have won their last two games 1-0 and have kept three clean sheets in their last four games. They are focusing on defensive solidity first and foremost as Sean Dyche has an injury crisis on his hands which has seen him shift to a 4-2-3-1 or 4-5-1 formation. Barring the 3-1 win over Spurs, United have struggled for goals themselves so this one has all the hallmarks of a match containing under 2.5 goals.
