Chris Wilder’s backline started 2019/20 slowly, conceding five goals in the first four Gameweeks.
Since then, however, they have upped their defensive displays, conceding just three goals in the last seven Gameweeks.
A defender in FPL, John Lundstram (£4.8m) is their star performer in the game thanks to his role in midfield.
His two goals against the Clarets earned him 21 points, the highest individual haul of 2019/20.
Lundstram now boasts 68 points this season, 14 more than any other defender.
Following those matches, Sheffield United’s schedule gives Lundstram the chance to bring in further big hauls.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), five of the Blades' six matches over Gameweeks 14 to 19 score just two.
Their wing-back system gives managers a number of options to bring in alongside Lundstram during that run.
Sheffield United's entire back five sit among the top 16 defenders for points.
Dean Henderson (£4.7m), meanwhile, is the joint top-scoring goalkeeper in the game on 48 points.
While Lundstram remains the standout pick, doubling up with another member of Wilder's rearguard looks a tempting tactic.
