On Tuesday 29 December, Burnley host Sheffield United at Turf Moor. It's a game between two teams in dire need of points and it seems plausible that both teams would rather safeguard one point rather than gamble for three. I do believe we're in for a rather dull and low scoring game.

Burnley

The Clarets are off to a rough start to the season; in the relegation zone on goal difference as I write.

No other team have created fewer shots or shots on target than Burnley so far this season, Burnley creating on average 8.92 ashots and 2.75 shots on target per game.

Looking at the four most recent games, Burnley have created on average 2.00 shots on target per game which is the joint worst attacking numbers in the league right now and also below Burnley's average so far this season.
