On Saturday, 20 April, as part of the 34th round of the Premier League, Sheffield United will host Burnley at home. A mere four points separation keeps these two underdogs apart in the league table; hence, the outcome of this duel will have a key bearing on the survival stakes.

Projected line-ups

Sheffield United: Grbic; Holgate, Trusty, Ahmedhodzic; Osborn, Souza, Hamer, Arblaster, Larouci; McBurnie, Brereton Diaz.
Burnley: Muric; Assignon, O'Shea, Esteve, Taylor; Foster, Berge, Brownhill, Cullen, Odobert; Datro Fofana.

Sheffield United

Sheffield United is currently languishing at the bottom of the Premier League table with a mere 16 points from 32 matches. The team seems virtually downgraded (trailing the 17th-placed Nottingham Forest by 10 points), with no wins in the last 8 rounds (3 draws, 5 losses). After managing a 2:2 draw against Chelsea before their home crowd, the team missed a golden opportunity to close the gap to the safety zone last weekend, succumbing to a 2:0 loss to Brentford.

With their total of 84 goals conceded at this stage of the season, they've set a Premier League record since its inception in 1992. Unsurprisingly, the Blades hold the distinction of being the worst performing team at home in this championship, having mustered a meagre 10 points from 16 home games. 

Burnley

Burnley, who also returned to the top flight last summer, currently occupy the 19th spot in the Premier League table and trail the 17th placed Nottingham Forest by 6 points. Hence, the club's chances of extending their stay in the Premier League are rather bleak. However, under the stewardship of Vincent Kompany, they've displayed improved form in recent weeks: having lost just one of their last six matches, with one win and four draws.

Following a disheartening 1:0 loss to Everton, Burnley managed a 1:1 draw with Brighton last weekend. Ironically, the Lancastrians lost points under farcical circumstances: just five minutes after Josh Brownhill's goal, goalkeeper Arijanet Muric was unable to handle a pass from Sander Berge, and the ball rolled into the net. It is important to note that Burnley own the fourth from bottom spot in the overall league table due to their away performances: amassing only 10 points from 16 away games, scoring 16 goals, and conceding 31. 

Head-to-Head Meetings

Kompany's team decimated their opponents in their December match at Turf Moor with a 5:0 victory, hammering the last nail into the coffin for then Sheffield United manager Paul Heckingbottom.

Prediction for Sheffield United vs Burnley

Four of Burnley's last six Premier League matches have ended in draws, while Sheffield United has forced a deadlock in three of their last five encounters. Both teams are likely to practice caution from the onset as the outcome could influence their survival chances. Without a clear favourite, I'm betting on a draw.

Total Goals Prediction

Four of the previous, head-to-head clashes between these sides have been devoid of goals from either side. We're unlikely to witness a goal fest this time around, hence my bet is on Under 2.5 goals in total.

Corner Prediction

Sheffield United averages just 3.2 corners per game, while the visitors average around 4.9. It makes sense to fancy Burnley winning this particular statistic.

Yellow Cards Prediction

The stage is set for a real battle at Bramall Lane. In the first round match, the referee brandished 9 yellow and one red card, leading me to confidently predict Over 4.5 booking points.

Exact Score Prediction

My exact score prediction is a 0:0 draw.
