Burnley host Sheffield United in Sunday’s early Premier League kick-off.
Despite reports of a breakdown in relationship between manager Sean Dyche and chairman Mike Garlick, the Clarets have completed back-to-back victories against Watford and Crystal Palace to reignite their outside hopes of securing a spot in next season’s Europa League. Burnley are currently seven points adrift of sixth-placed Wolves with six games remaining.
Meanwhile, the Blades also come into the fixture in a buoyant mood after thrashing Tottenham 3-1 at Bramall Lane earlier this week.
