Sheffield United will host Aston Villa
We are taking our attention to the Bramall Lane where Sheffield United will host Aston Villa in a game from the 17th round of the Premier League. Let’s talk about this match a little bit in our English Premier League predictions for today.
Since their promotion from the Champioship Sheffield United are having a solid season. The Blades are 8th in the standings with 22 points, which is pretty positive. Their whole record at the moment shows five wins, seven draws and four losses. Maybe nobody believed that in December Sheffield United will be in the Top 10 of the league, but that’s the sweet reality for them at the moment.
After a negative run without wins Sheffield United finally won again. This happened in the previous round when the Blades visited Norwich City at the Carrow Road and their performance led them to a 2-1 win. At halftime the visitors were losing, but after the break Enda Stevens and George Baldock secured the win for Sheffield United.
Aston Villa are also among the newcomers in the league, but they are not doing as good as their next opponent. The Villans are 17th in the standings with 15 points, inches away from the relegation zone. It’s going to be a difficult battle for them to keep their place in the elite division.
Just one win in their last five games – this is how Villa’s current form looks like. Last week they hosted Leicester City at the Villa Park, but got crushed with 1-4. Jack Grealish scored Aston Villa’s only goal in the match, but the Foxes were just much better.
On Saturday Aston Villa will be without Jed Steer and Keinan Davis, who are still injured.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the match between Sheffield United and Aston Villa on Saturday. We wish you good luck!
