On matchday 18 of the Premier League, Aston Villa will be hosting Sheffield United at the historical Villa Park on Saturday. Both clubs are at different tangents of the point table in the ongoing season.
Aston Villa is coming out to be the top player in the league as they stand at the 3rd spot in the point table with 12 wins and 38 points overall.
Sheffield United are in the relegation zone and they are struggling at the bottom of the point table with only 2 wins and 8 points.
Aston Villa has a tight attack and they are up against a weak defence that won’t be able to stop the Villians in both halves of the fixture.
The betting tip is...
Goals will be scored In Both Halves
An away win against Brentford in the previous has made the hosts a ferocious contender for the top position in the point table. With 68% possession in the game, the Lions dominated the game but witnessed a red card to Boubacar Kamara at the end of the fixture.
The Lions have displayed an average possession of 57% in the current season with 14.77 shots out of which 5.77 shots were on target. Ollie Watkins is their highest scorer with 14 goals and 6 assists on his name. Leon Bailey is another man to watch out for as he has 8 goals and 8 assists on his name.
The Villians have won 4 clean sheets in the current season and that displays their strength at the back. Emiliano Martinez has 60 saves on his name and he has conceded 25 goals in the ongoing season.
Emiliano Buendia and Tyrone Mings are out of action because of their respective injuries.
Predicted Lineup: Martínez (GK), Moreno, Carlos, Torres, Konsa, McGinn, Tielemans, Bailey, Luiz, Ramsey & Watkins
The Blades witnessed a rampage at the Stamford Bridge against Chelsea by 2-0 in the previous fixture. With only 22% of possession, Sheffield United completely failed to even control the ball. With every loss, their hopes to get out of the relegation zone are becoming difficult.
Overall, Sheffield has shown an average possession of only 39.87% with 8.73 shots out of which 2.86 shots were on target. Oliver McBurnie has scored 2 goals and has 1 assist on his name. Gustavo Hamer also has 2 goals & a single assist on his name.
The Blades have conceded goals in 88.99% of their fixtures and they have 1 clean wheat this season. The team is struggling overall in the attack and defence and they are coming out as the most vulnerable squad in the Premier League.
Chris Basham (ankle), John Egan (foot), Tom Davies (thigh), Rhys Norrington-Davies (thigh), and Rhian Brewster (thigh) remain rested because of their respective injuries.
Predicted Lineup: Foderingham, Bogle, Ahmedhodzic, Trusty, Lowe; McAtee, Norwood, Souza, Hamer, Archer, McBurnie
We are in for a one-sided affair where the hosts are expected to dominate the fixture. The Blades are struggling in every aspect of the team with defence failing to stop the attack and the attackers failing to score.
Aston Villa, on the other hand, has shown absolute dominance in the league this year with a higher possession and ferocious attack. We predict a win for Aston Villa on Saturday.
