BUR vs SHF Dream11 Match Prediction Football Burnley vs Sheffield United English League Cup 17 September

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.

Defenders- J O'Connell, J Egan, C Taylor

Captain Picks

Chris Wood can be the danger man from Burnley’s end. Wood has bagged 14 goals and has an assist to his name from 32 appearances in the previous season.

Jay Rodriguez could also play a pivotal role for Burnley on the offence. Rodriguez registered eight goals and an assists from 36 appearances last season.

X factors differential picks

Though David McGoldrick had just two goals and two assists from 28 appearances in the league last season, he can turn out to be the man for the occasion for Sheffield United up front.

Ashley Westwood has been the mainstay in midfield for Burnley. Westwood netted two goals and had six assists from 35 league appearances last season.
