Sheffield United vs. Burnley – English Premier League, May 23, 2021
Sheffield United’s sorry season finally ends on Sunday as it welcomes Burnley to Brammall Lane.
The Blades will finish rock bottom of the Premier League, whatever the result this weekend. They started the season in a terrible fashion and never really recovered.
Betting Odds for Sheffield United vs. Burnley
Burnley has shown this season that it can be a very determined side, but it has been limited in its ability to compete. BetOnline has made the Clarets the favorites to win this one – even if Sheffield United will surely want to finish off a very disappointing season with a victory.
Sheffield United never really stood a chance this season after failing to win any of its first 17 games. After surprising everyone last year, the Blades fell well short of what was required in the top flight.
Results did not pick up after Chris Wilder was let go. Still, interim manager Paul Heckingbottom has brought in some younger members of the squad in the last few games hoping that the experience will pay dividends for what promises to be an equally tough season in the Championship.
One of those new players that Burnley will have to look out for on Sunday is Daniel Jebbison. The young striker has played in the last three games and scored the winner at Everton. The Clarets have been leaking goals in the last few games, so he could be a real danger.
Sean Dyche will probably be fairly realistic about how his side has done this season. Staying up will have been the main priority – and that was achieved with a few games to go. Now he will want to be able to bring in some better quality players to ensure that Burnley challenges much further up in the table next season.
Sheffield United vs. Burnley Betting Pick
This game could be very uneventful as two teams with nothing to play for meet on the campaign’s final day. With the lack of goals from either club, it seems unlikely that we will see anything else on Sunday.
I think this one will fizzle out long before the end with the points shared.
