The two worst sides in the Premier League face off on Saturday as Sheffield United host Burnley at Bramall Lane.

At the moment, United are rock bottom of the table with just 16 points taken from their opening 32 matches. With every passing game that goes by without a win, they are that much closer to relegation, which will likely come soon.

Burnley are in slightly better shape on 20 points., but they too need a miracle to escape the drop.

Sheffield Utd Team News

Daniel Jebbison, Rhian Brewster, Tom Davies, George Baldock, John Egan, Chris Basham, Rhys Norrington-Davies and Max Lowe are all definitely out for Sheffield Utd.

Chris Wilder is also sweating over the fitness of Jayden Bogle and Jack Robinson. The former had to be withdrawn in the last game due to an ankle problem, while the latter also has an ankle injury, having been left out of the Brentford loss.

Key player: Sheffield Utd

Sheff Utd haven't had a lot of luck in front of goal this season, but Oli McBurnie is still their best hope at finding the back of the net.
