Sheffield Utd Prediction – Can Sheffield Utd win back-to-back?

Following their 2-1 win away from home at Norwich City last weekend, Sheffield United will be eyeing off back-to-back wins in the Premier League when strugglers, Aston Villa, make their way up to Bramall Lane this Saturday.

The victory at Norwich was an important one for Chris Wilder’s side as they’d played well in recent weeks but had gone 4 league matches without a win, albeit 3 of these 4 matches had resulted in draws with Tottenham, Manchester United and Wolves – all of whom occupy a place in the top 7 of the Premier League.

A 2-0 defeat at home to Newcastle United was disappointing though, and Wilder and his Blades side will be desperate to put in a better shift against Villa this Saturday as they seek another three points which could lift them up as high as 5th place, depending on other results of course.

Results at Bramall Lane have been mixed as their home record of 3-1-4 9/9 indicates, but Sheffield United should add to their points tally here as Villa have been poor away from home so far this season.

Aston Villa Prediction – Can Villa avoid third defeat on trot?

In contrast to their Saturday’s opponents who were also promoted from the Championship at the end of last season, Aston Villa’s return to the Premier League has produced a few highlights but these have been outweighed by disappointments as the west midlands club continue to hover dangerously just above the relegation zone.

Recent back-to-back defeats to Chelsea 2-1 away and a heavy 4-1 thumping at home to Leicester City have prevented Aston Villa from pulling further away from the bottom three as the visitors find themselves level on points with third from bottom club, Southampton prior to this weekend.

Results in recent times have seen Villa win just 1 of their last 7 matches overall in the top flight which was a 2-0 home win against Newcastle United, but losses to Manchester City, Liverpool, Wolves, Chelsea and Leicester City, while expected, have also done damage to Villa’s confidence.

An away record of 1-1-6 12/17 also includes losing 3 of their last 4 matches on their travels and they could come unstuck again at Bramall Lane this Saturday too.


Key-Facts – Sheffield Utd vs Aston Villa

  • A win for Sheffield Utd could take them up into 5th place in the EPL
  • Aston Villa have won just 1 of their last 7 matches overall in the top flight
  • Sheffield United beat Aston Villa 4-1 in their last meeting at home


Betting Tips Verdict

Sheffield United should get across the line here but use the handicap on the hosts.
