Sheffield United News and Form – Can the Blades beat Villa?

The Blades fought out a 2-1 win at Norwich last weekend. That was a very good response by them after having lost their previous game at home against Newcastle. It is back to Bramall Lane this weekend where they have picked up a W3 D1 L4 record this season. Their loss there against Newcastle in their last home fixture had snapped a three-match undefeated streak that the Blades had been on in front of their home support. It’s the only game in their last eight in which they have failed to score as well.

Draw/Draw HT/FT
5/1

Unibet

Sheffield United have both scored and conceded 9 goals at home this season, picking up a clean sheet in 38% of home games. Interestingly, however, United have seen over 2.5 goals in 8 of their last 9 matches against Aston Villa in all competitions. The Blades have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last five league games but still hold the third-best defensive record in the top flight behind Leicester and Liverpool only. United have conceded 78% of their home goals in the second half of games.

Aston Villa News and Form – Can the Villians beat Sheffield United?

Aston Villa have lost back to back league fixtures, going down 4-1 at Leicester last weekend. That is just the one success that they have taken in their last seven played now, losing five of those. So they are struggling and while the Villains have not packed enough punch going forward, they have to find a way to stem the flood of goals against them. They have conceded the least two goals in six of their last seven played.

The away record of Villa this season is W1 D1 L6. 88% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals, so there have been some thoroughly entertaining affair. The Villains are yet to bank an away clean sheet this season. They have conceded at least two goals in each of their last four away games. Four of their six away losses, however, have only been by the one-goal margin. Of the 17 away goals that Villa have conceded, 14 of them have been in the second half of fixtures.

Sheffield United vs Aston Villa Predictions

Sheffield United to win: The defence of Aston Villa is not up to par, certainly not to the quality of Sheffield United’s. It may well be worth having a flutter on both teams getting on the scoresheet but the home win looks probable.
