Burnley boss Sean Dyche: "Working hard without the ball has seen us through a tough game. We were playing against a Sheffield United side who I think are a good side - talk about a team that is fighting, they are fighting and put us under pressure in the second half.
"We thought it would be a tight game because you look at their scorelines and they are tight. There were not many chances overall but it was the quality of chances, that is important for us.
"We didn't take them but we scored from the set-piece and the way we saw the game out, I thought we were outstanding.
"We believe in the set-piece work we do here. We simplify it for the players and put the onus on them to attack the ball."
Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder: "I think we were a little bit naive at times in certain aspects of the game. They got their noses in front and did what they needed to do to see the game out. A big three points for them and another defeat for us.
"Late on they just sat in and worked their socks off which they do as a team and we struggled to find that space and that pass that would get us back in the game.
"I am saying the same thing again. It was a good start by them but we got a foothold in the game and started to dictate and had a couple of opportunities. Yet again [we were] not showing that quality that decides the game.
"The year we had last year was a perfect storm for us, we took big moments and found that bit of quality. This time we don't find that bit of quality and it marries up with the results. It is a big arm wrestle and a big struggle for us."
