Burnley host Sheffield United in the Premier League this evening as both sides aim to bolster their survival hopes.

Sean Dyche’s side finally kickstarted their season with a fine run of results earlier this month - defeating Arsenal and Wolves and holding high-flying Aston Villa - but suffered defeat against Leeds last time out and are still just two points clear of the bottom three. A glaring shortage up front is the Clarets’ greatest issue, with his side having scored just eight goals in 14 games.

Burnley’s strife pales in comparison to the Blades, however, who have been brought thudding to earth after their heroics last season. Sheffield United are still without a win this campaign and have taken just two points from 15 games, threatening a record-breakingly low tally.

United put in a fine effort against Everton but eventually succumbed to Gylfi Sigurdsson’s late winner last time out and have also scored just eight goals all season, with Rhian Brewster struggling to make an impression since his move from Liverpool.
