Sheffield United vs Aston Villa: Sheffield United and Aston Villa face this weekend for the first time since the promotion. With visitors who have not yet reached the elite, Sheffield United is the first to reach the top this weekend.
Sheffield United managed to end its four-game winning streak last week after overtaking the Norwich team on the road. The hosts were followed by a goal at the end of the break in this last game.
However, two goals in three minutes after the restart did the job for the Blades, who made the trip back with the three points in the bag.
With twenty-two points in his name, the home team is now eighth on the scale and sports a healthy seven-point mattress at Aston Villa.
On the other hand, his weekend opponents will reach Bramall Lane after a streak of two consecutive losses. In their previous home game, Leicester City defeated them 4-1, before Chelsea led the way with a score of 2-1.
To make matters worse, Aston Villa has not tested success in any of its last four outings. Disappointingly, they also did not collect more than one unfortunate point of the twelve possible in the process.
Given the fact that his last visit to this site also saw them at the end of a 4-1 race, it goes without saying that Sheffield is the favorite to guarantee bragging rights this weekend.
In addition, the hosts were not consistent in keeping their enemies at bay. They have conceded nine goals in their last seven games here. Meanwhile, regardless of the result, Aston Villa has found the bottom of the net at least once in each of its last three jogging races.
Since both teams have also put their names on the score sheet of four of their last five h2h meetings here, don’t count on either side to leave the ninety minutes with a blank sheet of paper intact in the -ci.
