Sheffield United vs Aston Villa Predictions


Aston Villa have impressed on their travels this season which can continue in Sheffield. Sheffield United are destined for the Championship and another defeat beckons.

  • Sheffield United have lost 5 of their last 6 matches (Premier League).
  • Sheffield United have lost 21 of their 26 matches this season (Premier League).
  • Sheffield United have failed to score in their last 3 matches (Premier League).
  • Aston Villa have won 2 of their last 3 away matches (Premier League).
  • Aston Villa have seen under 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 away matches (all competitions).
  • Aston Villa have kept a clean sheet in 3 of their last 4 matches (Premier League).

Head to Head


These two sides have met 137 times with Aston Villa holding a 64-40 head-to-head record. There have also been 33 draws.

Both sides came up together from the Championship in the 2018/19 season and have faced each other three times since. The score is perfectly balanced at one win for each side and a draw. 

Earlier on in the season, Villa edged out Sheffield United with a 1-0 victory thanks to an Ezri Konsa goal after John Egan was sent off early. 

Sheffield United Form


Chris Wilder’s men are facing certain relegation as they sit 15 points off safety coming into this game. 

Losing back-to-back away games at Fulham and West Ham was followed by a 2-0 loss to last season’s champions Liverpool on Sunday.

The Blades have won five out of their last 11 games in all competitions, but in the Premier League it is a different story with five defeats in the last six matches.

Sheffield United are breaking record for all the wrong reasons as they are the first team since 1970/71 to lose at least 21 of their first 26 matches.

No team ever has been 15 points from safety and stayed up.

Sheffield United Injuries & Team News


Chris Wilder still has all of his first-choice centre-halves unavailable. John Egan, Jack O’Connell and Chris Basham are all out. 

Meanwhile, Sander Berge, Jack O’Connell and Jack Robinson all miss out too.

Aston Villa Form


Aston Villa edged past Leeds in their last outing thanks to Anwar El Ghazi’s early goal in a 1-0 win at Elland Road.

Villa currently sit fifth in the away form table with seven wins out of 13 this season having also beaten Southampton and drawn with Brighton on the road in recent weeks.

Villa sit in ninth spot, five points adrift of the European places.

Winning two of their last three away from home, Dean Smith's side will be confident of returning from another trip to Yorkshire with all three points.

Aston Villa Injuries & Team News


Villa have first choice right-back Matty Cash out due to a thigh injury and he joins Wesley and Kortney Hause on the injury list.

Captain Jack Grealish has recovered quicker than first thought from injury, but it is unlikely he will feature at Bramall Lane. The weekend game against Wolves is a more realistic return date.
