Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Burnley and Sheffield United take on each other at Turf Moor in a highly-anticipated EFL Cup game. The Clarets were not in action at the weekend as their Premier League game against Manchester United was postponed, meaning that tired legs should not be a problem for them. Important attacker Ashley Barnes is sidelined with injury, but the likes of Jay Rodriguez and Chris Wood are likely to make life difficult for the opposition back-line.
The Blades, on the other hand, are eyeing yet another successful season, and they surely want to kick off their Carabao Cup campaign in style. However, beating Burnley on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards at Turf Moor, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. Sheffield Utd midfielder Sander Berge should recover in time to face the Clarets.
