Burnley Insights.

Although Burnley suffered defeat last time out, that was just one of two defeats across their previous eight Premier League (PL) matches (W3, D3, L2). Across that eight-game period, only five sides had a lower goals conceded average than theirs of 1.0 per game, although notably, five of those eight conceded strikes arrived in just one match (5-0 Manchester City). The ‘Clarets’ are unbeaten at home across their previous three fixtures (W2, D1), scoring before HT in all three matches. Two of those efforts actually arrived in the opening ten minutes of the match, which has contributed to just one of Burnley’s previous seven PL home games featuring a 0-0 scoreline at the break.

Sheffield United Insights.

A 1-0 defeat on Boxing Day gave rock-bottom Sheffield United an 18th consecutive winless PL game (D2, L16) – all of which they conceded in – for what is both the longest current winless run in the competition, and the longest current PL run without a clean sheet. There is evidence that their luck is due to change based on the tight nature of their losses though, as 76.92% of Sheffield’s league defeats have arrived by just a one-goal margin. Furthermore, their three goals scored across their previous three matches is as many as they achieved in the seven PL matches prior. However, the ‘Blades’ are winless in their previous five competitive visits to Turf Moor (D2, L3), although they have scored in the last three. Notably, the previous two H2Hs held here finished 1-1 after 90 minutes, as did Sheffield’s last PL away match (vs Brighton).
