It is a battle of the newly promoted sides as Burnley host Sheffield United in a Premier League fixture on Saturday. Both teams have struggled this season but Burnley have looked a bit more put together than their visitors and should have the upper hand in front of their fans.

The rigours of topflight football is proving difficult for Burnley, who have picked up just one Premier League win so far. They have spent much of the campaign rooted to the bottom of the standings and are currently five points from safety.

Burnley head into Tuesday’s clash off the back of a 2-1 defeat to West Ham in their previous Premier League fixture. Vincent Kompany’s men led for much of the second half before capitulating four minutes from time.

While Burnley are still winless at Turf Moor this season, some of their showings in front of their fans have caught the eye. They led against the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and West Ham before capitulating and will be keen to channel those performances and also try to hold out for much longer on Saturday.

Sheffield United are in a similar situation with Burnley having also picked up just one Premier League win this season. They are also deep in relegation trouble and are just one point above the Clarets in the standings.

The Blades are also coming off a defeat as they were beaten 3-1 by Bournemouth last time out in the Premier League. They struggled for much of the contest and fell three goals down before Oliver McBurnie grabbed an injury time consolation.

Sheffield United’s record on their travels has been abysmal this season as they are winless away from home so far. Paul Heckingbottom’s men have suffered some heavy defeats on the road like the 5-0 hammering at Arsenal, although they did earn a 1-1 draw at Brighton in their previous away fixture.

Burnley are considered overwhelming favourites among the bookies with a home win priced at 4/5 by Paddy Power. A victory for Sheffield United is valued at 18/5 by BetVictor while William Hill is offering odds of 13/5 for a draw.
