Aston Villa begin their Premier League season with a home clash with Sheffield United on Monday. Both sides avoided relegation in their first seasons back in the top flight, but did so in differing fashion. Who will take the points at Villa Park?

Aston Villa Form


Aston Villa secured their Premier League survival on the final day of the season with a 1-1 draw at West Ham enough to see Dean Smith's side avoid relegation by a single point in 17th place.

Villa weren't in action in Week 1 of the new season, but have got a win on the board having recorded a 3-1 victory over Burton in the Carabao Cup second round in midweek. New signing Ollie Watkins, Jack Grealish and Keinan Davis got the Villa goals.

Sheffield United finished in ninth place last season but have gone five games without a win. They finished last season with three Premier League defeats and started this one with another loss as well as a second round Carabao Cup exit.

The Blades were beaten 2-0 by Wolves in last week's Premier League opener with both goals coming in the opening six minutes at Bramall Lane. Chris Wilder's side drew 1-1 with Burnley at Turf Moor in the League Cup before losing on penalties on Thursday.
