Sheffield United’s impressive start to the season continues.

Last weekend, Lys Mousset’s equaliser helped them to a 1-1 draw at the London Stadium with West Ham United.

That’s two in two for the Frenchman after he scored the only goal of the game in a famous 1-0 home victory over Arsenal the week before.

Overall, Chris Wilder’s side are currently eighth on 13 points after ten games.

They’re still unbeaten away from home but have, surprisingly, found wins harder to come by at Bramall Lane.

Crystal Palace and Arsenal have left with nothing but Southampton, Leicester and Liverpool have all left Sheffield victorious.

After this, the Blades travel to Tottenham before hosting Manchester United.

Ahead of those two huge games, will their impressive start to the season continue?

Will Burnley get a win on the road?

As for Burnley, they head across to Yorkshire after back to back defeats.

Last weekend, they were simply outclassed going down 4-2 at home to Chelsea.

That followed a 2-1 defeat at Leicester although, if it wasn’t for some dodgy VAR, they would’ve got a point there.

Prior to that though Sean Dyche’s side had enjoyed a four-match unbeaten run which is why they are currently 11th.

Surprisingly, the Clarets are actually yet to win away from Turf Moor this season, racking up three draws and enduring two loses.

Will they get their first away win since 6 April?

Chris Wilder

As always, the majority of Chris Wilder’s team will not change.

Dean Henderson will continue in goal having played every minute in the league this season.

The back three of Jack O’Connell, Chris Basham and John Egan are all ever-presents this season.

John Egan leads the way for headed clearances in the Premier League and both he and O’Connell are in the top four for clearances.

Wing-backs Enda Stevens and George Baldock have also started every game so far.

The midfield of John Fleck, Oliver Norwood and John Lundstram also never changes.

The only area of the field Wilder likes to tinker is with his strike partnership.

However, having scored in each of his last two, Lys Mousset should keep his place.

Likewise, David McGoldrick is expected to be his partner once again with Callum Robinson, Billy Sharp and Oliver McBurnie all left on the bench.

Will Bramall Lane be celebrating a home win?

After Sheffield United, Burnley have made the least changes to their starting XI this season.

Nick Pope has started every game in goal with the same back four in front of him.

Left-back Erik Pieters continues to be first-choice ahead of Charlie Taylor.

In midfield, it’ll be Ashley Westwood and Jack Cork as the middle pairing.

Out-wide, Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson is still out with a thigh injury.

So, Jeff Hendrick is likely to keep his place with Dwight McNeil on the other flank.

Up front, Sean Dyche has a decision to make.

Chris Wood is expected to be back after injury so, despite the fact he scored a stunner last weekend, Jay Rodriguez will drop back out.

Wood and Ashley Barnes will rekindle their partnership so can help Burnley defeat Sheffield United?
