Sheffield Utd have won just three Premier League games so far this season, but it'll be fixtures like this that they'll have earmarked as an opportunity to add to that tally. The Blades have conceded at least two goals in their last six EPL matches, though, so they'll need to find their shooting boots if they want to win. The problem? They've only scored more than twice in two games so far.

Burnley haven't fared much better than today's opponents when it comes to winning Premier League games. The Clarets have earned maximum points just four times, but one of those did come against the Blades in the reverse fixture; a 5-0 thrashing at Turf Moor back in December. Jay Rodriguez opened the scoring within 15 seconds then, and a similarly fast start would be very welcome by head coach Vincent Kompany today.

Here's how the teams line up:

Sheff Utd XI: Grbić (GK), Trusty, Hamer, McBurnie, Brereton Diaz, Ahmedhodžić, Bogle, Souza, Osborn, Arblaster, McAtee.

Burnley XI: Muric (GK), O'Shea, Taylor, Berge, Foster, Assignon, Vitinho, Cullen, Estève, Bruun Larsen, Odobert.
