We’ve got another feast of football to get our teeth into on Sunday.
Here is what has got down so far across the Premier League…
Tight draw halts European aspirations
Burnley and Sheffield United played out an entertaining draw which helped neither side in their hope of European qualification.
Chris Wilder will feel his side should’ve had a penalty in the opening 20 minutes as Erik Pieters appeared to handle the ball from a corner.
However, that dastardly VAR decided against awarding a spot-kick.

The Clarets then made the breakthrough three minutes before the half-time break, with James Tarkowski dispatching Jay Rodriguez’s flick-on from a free-kick at the far post.
The Blades equalized with ten minutes to go with a set-piece of their own.
A clever short-corner was manufactured to allow Billy Sharp to flick the ball into the path of John Egan.

The center-half channelled his inner Marco van Basten to volley the ball past Nick Pope and level the scoreline.
Dwight McNeil missed a crucial chance to put the game beyond doubt for Burnley, shanking a rebound wide despite having only the goalkeeper to beat.
The hosts remain in ninth, while Sheffield United are two points and a place above them.
Still to come
