Aston Villa Preview – Can Aston Villa maintain revival?

An impressive but desperately needed four-match unbeaten run towards the end of last season’s Premier League campaign saved Aston Villa from the drop as they registered crucial wins against Crystal Palace and Arsenal, both at home, along with gaining vital points on the road at Everton and West Ham.

Villa finished just one place above the relegation zone and a single point above third from bottom Bournemouth but it was enough to save Dean Smith’s side from relegation and the west midlands club appear to have picked up where they left off in these early stages of this new season.

Back-to-back pre-season wins at home over Wycombe Wanderers and Manchester United were a welcome boost while a 3-1 win away at League One outfit, Burton Albion, in the League Cup will also give Villa confidence ahead of their season-opener against Sheffield United.

Goals may not flow here though as three of the previous five meetings between these two clubs have resulted in under 2.5 goals, with the last meeting producing a 0-0 draw.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Sheffield United Preview – Can Sheffield Utd avoid third defeat on trot?

Sheffield United manager, Chris Wilder, will be taking his side down to the west midlands for this Monday night clash against Aston Villa no doubt looking to avoid a third defeat in all competitions following last weekend’s 2-0 defeat at home to Wolves in the Premier League, which was then followed by a penalty loss away at Burnley in the League Cup.

In contrast to their Monday night’s hosts, Aston Villa, Sheffield United ended last season on a low note as The Blades succumbed to three league defeats on the trot against Leicester City, Everton and Southampton which left the Yorkshire club in a still respectable 9th place, but these losses ended any hopes of securing a European spot.

The visitors’ results away from home were praised in the first half of the season as The Blades put together a stubborn run of nine matches without defeat, but after Christmas, Chris Wilder’s side managed just one win from their subsequent 10 matches on their travels, losing six of these while 14 of their 19 away matches resulted in under 2.5 goals.
