One of the biggest games in the Premier League this weekend will take place at Turf Moor, as Burnley and Sheffield United lock horns. Both sides sit in the bottom three places in the league standings, and a victory could be huge for the long-term prospects of the current coaches.

Before Betting On Burnley vs Sheffield United

It has been a miserable start to the new season for Burnley, as the Clarets sit bottom of the league standings after 13 rounds of matches. Despite that, Vincent Kompany has claimed that the Premier League has been much easier than his side were expecting. Those comments appear incredibly strange given that his side have lost eleven of their matches this term, and have claimed just a single victory in the competition.

Sheffield United will be the visitors to Turf Moor this weekend, as they bid to pick up maximum points which could edge them closer to the safety spots in the current standings. The Blades have won just once in the Premier League this term, and they have suffered ten losses. They weren’t able to kick on in their first match following the international break, as they suffered a 3-1 home loss against Bournemouth.

The head-to-head record shows that the Clarets hold the advantage, as they have won four of their last five home matches against the Blades. In fact, the away side has lost in three of the last four matches between these two newly promoted sides in the Premier League. Contrastingly, away sides have excellent in matches between promoted sides, with the traveling side having won ten of the last 17 matches of this kind.

It could be challenging to keep faith with Burnley this weekend, as they have already lost each of their first seven home matches this term. That is the first time in the Premier League era that a side has dropped to that record, and they could become the first team in Football League history to lose each of their opening eight matches at the start of a new season on Saturday.

Burnley are incredibly short in the betting to land victory this weekend, and therefore it could be worth taking them on. Away sides have dominated previous clashes between promoted sides, meaning it could be worthwhile to side with the Blades this weekend.
