In this Premier League relegation match at Turf Moor on December 2, hosts Burnley and visitors Sheffield United are separated by just one point.
After going through a six-game losing streak, Burnley is currently bottom of the Premier League standings with just four points. However, they have managed two difficult victories: a 2-1 victory away from home against Luton Town and a 1-1 draw away at Nottingham Forest. This means that Vincent Kompany’s team still needs to win their first home game of the season. To get a win Burnley will give it their all on the field despite their current seven-game losing streak across all competitions. Major questions surround both Jack Cork and Lyle Foster, but Manuel Benson should be well enough to play against Sheffield. Burnley’s poor start to their return to the English premier league has been exacerbated by their 11 losses in their first 13 Premier League games overall. Burnley has also lost all seven of their home games thus far.
Conversely, Sheffield United hopes to recover from a 3-1 setback at Bournemouth. Even though Sheffield United’s lone victory of the season came at Bramall Lane, the Blades have lost five games and drawn one when traveling, meaning they have not yet won a game on the road. Sheffield United has also dropped to 10 defeats so far this season. For the Turf Moor match, the visiting team will be missing Brewster, Basham, Davies, Egan, Jebbison, and Norrington-Davies. With the exception of a 1-1 draw with Fulham in October 2020, the Blades have never dropped a Premier League match against teams that are starting the day at the bottom of the table with 4 wins and 7 draws. Therefore, in a match that is anticipated to be more about not losing than it is about fighting all out for the 3 points, the visitors are by no means assured of a win here at Turf Moor.
