BUR vs SHF Dream11 Prediction
Burnley will be kicking off their season as they take on Sheffield United in the upcoming League Cup tie. It hasn't been the best start to the Premier League campaign for the Blades as they were beaten 2-0 to Wolves. Talking about Burnley, they secured the 10th spot last season with 54 points on board and were interestingly on level terms with Sheffield. It was the superior goal difference which secured Sheffiled a 9th place finish. Sean Dyche and Chris Wilder are known for their tactical prowess and we can expect the game to go right down the wire. A defeat for either side will knock them out of the League Cup, which could prove to be a big blow in terms of team morale. With that being said, here is the Dream11 Prediction for the fixture ahead.
