After starting the season with 23 points from their opening ten games, Sheffield United has experienced highs and lows in the Championship.
The Blades were sitting atop the table in September after a draw with Birmingham City before going six games without a win and only picking up three points thanks to Blackpool, Norwich City, and West Bromwich Albion draw.
However, United returned to winning ways last weekend against West Brom as Iliman Ndiaye and Oli McBurnie scored to seal a 2-0 victory at The Hawthorns.
After winning their first two games of the season against Coventry City and Swansea City, Burnley drew with Birmingham City and started another winning streak, this time beating Sunderland 4-2 away from home and Norwich 1-0 at Turf Moor.
They followed that up with three consecutive wins against Reading, who beat 2-1 with an 87th-minute equalizer from Anass Zaroury before Manuel Benson leveled the score at 2-2 in injury time, and Halil Dervisoglu scored the winner in the 10th minute of added time.
