The two least efficient Premier League teams will face at Turf Moor on Tuesday, so check out our Burnley vs Sheffield United Preview.

Burnley Recent Form & Team News

Even though Burnley lost the latest Premier League match, that was only one of two losses in their last eight games (W3, D3, L2). During that span, just five team had a lower goals allowed average than the Clarets of 1.0 per match. Notably, though, five of those eight goals allowed strikes occurred in one game (a 5-0 loss to Manchester City).

Burnley are without a defeat in their last three games at Turf Moor (W2, D1), scoring before halftime in all three in the process. Two of those goals actually came in the first ten minutes of the game. That contributed to only one of Burnley’s previous seven PL games at home featuring a 0-0 result at the interval.

Player to watch: Chris Wood scored two goals in his last three PL appearances at home.

Hot stat: Burnley conceded seven penalties in this calendar year – only Tottenham conceded more.

Sean Dyche doesn’t have any new injury-related concerns. However, Robbie Brady (thigh), Jack Cork (lacking match fitness), Johann Gudmundsson (muscle), Dwight McNeil (groin), and Matej Vydra (back) are questionable.

Sheffield United Recent Form & Team News

A 1-0 loss on Boxing Day gave rock-bottom Sheffield United an 18th straight winless Premier League match (D2, L16). The Blades allowed at least a goal in each. It’s both the longest current run without a win in the competition, and also the longest current PL run without keeping the net intact. Considering that 76.92% of Sheffield’s losses in the league came by just a one-goal difference, their luck could change pretty soon. Additionally, they scored three goals in the previous three games, which is the exact number of goals they scored in seven matches before that little run.

When it comes to H2H duels, though, Sheffield United are without a win in the last five visits to Turf Moor (D2, L3). On a brighter note, they did score in the previous three. Each of the last two H2Hs at this venue ended 1-1.

Player to watch: David McGoldrick scored three of Sheffield United’s previous five goals in the Premier League, and bagged in the last H2H at Turf Moor.

Chris Wilder will be without Sander Berge (thigh), Kean Bryan (calf), John Lundstram (suspension), and Jack O’Connell (knee). Oliver Burke (back) and Oliver McBurnie (knock) are questionable to feature on Tuesday.
