Sheffield United

Sheffield United will seek an immediate response after their weekend disappointment when they travel to Lancashire with Burnley up next on Thursday.

Burnley hope to improve upon recent EFL Cup results, after losing in their first match during both of the last two seasons. Can they reign supreme at home against a side that took the Premier League by storm last term?

After their top-flight fixture at the weekend was postponed, the Clarets target a win to officially kickstart their campaign. Will they do so against motivated opposition in a league rival? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Burnley vs Sheffield United Betting Tips

After being put to the sword after just six minutes on Sunday by Wolves, head coach Chris Wilder will be expecting a determined response from his Sheffield United players.

This is a side that finished ninth in their first top-flight season for more than a decade. They were genuinely on course for Europa League qualification, before three successive defeats to end the campaign extinguished an otherwise excellent campaign.

Funnily enough, they faltered in the EFL Cup. Losing against League One side Sunderland in R3 last year will provide them with added motivation to improve upon that disappointment, albeit against tougher opposition in one of their Premier League counterparts.

Burnley haven't played competitively since a 2-1 home defeat by Brighton to end the 2019-20 season on July 26. Sean Dyche will probably field a relatively strong side, even with Premier League opposition in the form of Leicester away on Sunday evening.

After a disappointing display against Wolves last weekend, Wilder is likely to rotate his side – we could see some newcomers make their debuts. Ethan Ampadu (on-loan from Chelsea) and new acquisition Oliver Burke (swap deal from West Brom) were unused subs at Bramall Lane.

Burnley vs Sheffield United Correct Score Predictions

This is tough to call. Burnley's top-flight return was delayed a week, but that extra break could prove a double-edged sword. Sheffield United are eager to right their wrongs after conceding two early goals that proved decisive on Sunday. Can they do so here? I'm predicting BTTS.
