Burnley (WWLDD) and Sheffield United (WLLLD) will meet on Sunday, July 5th for an English Premier League match. The match is scheduled for a 7:00 AM EST start time and it will be played at Turf Moor.
Burnley is coming off a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace in its last match. That makes it back-to-back 1-0 victories for a Burnley team that has made the most of its depleted roster. Burnley is battling injuries pretty well, as the team is now in 9th place in the English Premier League standings. In the win over Crystal Palace, Ben Mee was the lone goal scorer in the 62nd minute for Burnely. Burnley defense, along with outstanding goaltender Nick Pope, has played great football. With two consecutive clean sheets, it is no wonder why Burnley has had success, as they have put its bad loss to Manchester City behind them.
Sheffield United has to be happy after putting its three-game losing streak in the past with a big, 3-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur. Tottenham controlled the possession in the match, but that was about it. Sheffield United's excellent counterattacks were too much for Tottenham to handle, as Sheffield United was electric on Thursday. Sander Berge got the scoring started in the 31st minute for Sheffield United and Lys Mousset would add a goal for himself in the 69th minute to make it 2-0 Sheffield. Oliver McBurnie would put the stamp of approval on the match with a goal in the 84th minute. Harry Kane would score a consolation in the 90th minute to bring the final score to 3-1. Sheffield United is now 7th in the English Premier League standings.
The last time Burnley and Sheffield United met was on November 2nd of 2019. That match resulted in a 3-0 victory for Sheffield United in front of its home supporters.
In this match, I am going to take Sheffield United. Burnley has held down the fort well as players are healing, but Sheffield United is no Watford nor Crystal Palace. I expect Sheffield United to put the press on, and one goal could be enough for a win in this one.
