Burnley vs Sheffield Utd team news

Burnley

Burnley took the lead at home to West Ham thanks to a Jay Rodriguez penalty but two late goals handed West Ham all three points. Jack Cork, Arijanet Muric and Lyle Foster are expected to miss out once again this weekend. Vincent Kompany would love to have his top scorer available for selection but Foster can only come back when he feels mentally ready.

Predicted Lineup: Trafford (GK), Taylor, O'Shea, Beyer, Vitinho, Guðmunds­son, Brownhill, Berge, Rodríguez, Amdouni & Koleosho

Sheffield Utd

The Blades just didn't have enough about them to avoid defeat at home to Bournemouth last time out. The hosts found themselves 3-0 down by the fifty-first minute and although Ollie McBurnie pulled a goal back in stoppage time, the result had already been decided. Sheffield United are expected to be without the likes of Chris Basham, John Egan, Tom Davies, Daniel Jebbison, Rhian Brewster and Rhys Norrington-Davies for the trip to Turd Moor due to injury and illness.

Predicted Lineup: Foderingham (GK), Baldock, Robinson, Trusty, Bogle, Thomas, Norwood, Hamer, Souza, McAtee & Archer

Player to Watch: Zeki Amdouni

Burnley's Zeki Amdouni has been in great form for his national team Switzerland over the past six months but hasn't shown enough of that quality in front of goal when wearing his club colours.

Amdouni has only managed to score once in twelve starts for Saturday's hosts and that's not down to a lack of chances either. More is expected from the former Basel man who has scored three times in his last nine appearances for Switzerland at senior and U21 level.

Amdouni certainly has the quality to win this game for Burnley, if he can find that same level of consistency he has managed to put together for his country.
