It's that time of the week, guys.
This time we're taking a plunge into Burnley's trip to Sheffield United, as the Clarets look to bounce back from a trouncing at the hands of Chelsea
However, the trip to Bramall Lane will be no easy task, the newly-promoted Blades are unbeaten in their last three and have the joint-best defensive record in the division, conceding just eight times this season.
So, before Saturday's intriguing matchup between two sides who would get more pleasure out of a 1-0 win than a 5-1 victory, be sure to check out the stats - provided by Opta - down below. Well, unless you want to get blown out of the water by your mates again. Your choice.
Despite both sides enjoying multiple season spells in the Premier League, Saturday's fixture will
Burnley's Favourite County
Burnley have played more Premier League games in Yorkshire without losing than any other side in the history of the competition (5 – W3 D2 L0). Their last top-flight defeat in the county came at Leeds
Clean Sheets the Preference
Despite their strong start to the season, Sheffield United
No side has scored fewer home goals in the Premier League this season than Sheffield United, with the Blades netting twice as many goals away from home (6) as they have at Bramall Lane (3).
It's fair to say that Sean Dyche's side enjoy playing with the comfort of home support.
The Clarets have both scored and conceded in all five of their away league games this season, though they remain one of five sides yet to win on the road in the Premier League so far this term (D3 L2).
Saturday's visitors are winless in their last seven away Premier League games, their longest such run since their first 17 on the road in 2016/17. The Clarets have also failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 12 away league games, since a goalless draw at Watford in January.
Not many foreshadowed the start made by the Blades this season, and it's understandable.
This will be just Sheffield United’s 10th Premier League game that they've started in the top half of the table, with six of them now coming this season. They’ve failed to win any of the previous nine such matches (D3 L6).
Blades fans will be hoping that streak is snapped this weekend.
Next Victim, Please
Sheffield United will be the 54th different side Burnley manager Sean Dyche has faced in his English league career – he’s beaten 50 of the previous 53 he’s faced, failing only so far against Arsenal
Ones to Watch
Despite the defensive nature of both these sides, there'll be a couple of players to look out for in the attacking third.
Sheffield United’s Lys Mousset has scored with three of his last four shots in the Premier League, having found the net with just three of his previous 39 in the competition.
