In the Villains guest with Sheffield United a team that will undoubtedly demand the home side everything. Although the Blades kick the second season in the Championship, after the rise from the League One in 2017, but so far, the team of coach Chris Wilder sets a stable season performance to the day. The previous year’s tenth is currently in third place and the very good ranking has been held for many weeks with small deviations. For the allegedly always particularly difficult year as a former newcomer, a balance sheet that demands respect. The hosts present instead grow through this season.
Aston Villa vs Sheffield United Championship Prediction
The change of coach in mid-October did not bring the success that was hoped for. So the yield of Coach Dean Smith and his prominent assistant coach John Terry so far stands for seven wins and draws and five defeats. Although the cut at points from previously 1.25 to 1.47 was slightly increased, but the fans have certainly promised more. At home in Villa Park, the Lions are always very strong. Only two of 15 home games were lost and with 34 goals, the club is the second best home offensive. But the opponent, who in turn can claim the title of the third strongest outward attack, can also score goals. At Aston Villa vs Sheffield United goals should fall on both sides, so the tip goes in this direction.
Aston Villa – Statistics & Current Form
The seven-time champion ranks in ninth place after about two-thirds of the season and thus still has to gain if it should at least be enough for sixth place, whereby the re-qualification for the promotion round would be done. Last year, Aston Villa were still fourth in the playoffs, but had ultimately beaten in the final Fulham FC. In this season, the Elf from Birmingham occurs less constant. Read on, among other things, already 13 draws after 30 matchdays – a record in the championship, which otherwise only the city rivals Birmingham City FC has.
One problem is that although Villa has the third best storm, the club is also the third worst defense. A defensive, especially at home like to give away gifts: With 27 goals, it is even the most punishing home defense of the entire league. Above all, Tammy Abraham excels in the offensive. The 21-year-old Briton has 19 goals and is currently top scorer in the championship with Billy Sharp from the upcoming opponent. He has met at least once in six of his last ten appearances. If he goes on like that, he’ll probably be called back by Chelsea, who lent him to Aston Villa.
Perfect storm and weak defensive – no wonder that the club with 99 goals in its games has the highest value of all representatives in the British lower house. Coach Smith has to renounce his goalkeeper, the Norwegian Orjan Nyland, due to injury in the upcoming match. In addition, Jack Grealish and Henri Lansbury in midfield and Axel Tuanzebe in the defense due to injuries can not accumulate.
Expected lineup of Aston Villa:
Kalinic – Hutton – Elphick – Mings – Taylor – Whelan – McGinn – El Ghazi – Hourihane – Adomah – Abraham

Sheffield United – Statistics & Current Form
Only 16 games left in the championship and Sheffield United has already collected 54 points. A yield that is only 15 points below the result at the end of last season and clearly makes clear that the club is particularly successful this year. Although he owes the more than respectable placement above all his home strength – he is in this rating together with Leeds even in the first place – but also abroad are the Blades in these weeks an unpleasant opponent.
Read out that they have lost only three of the recent ten appearances and instead won four wins and three draws. Coach Chris Wilder, who led Sheffield into the championship, can always rely on his offense. Only in Nottingham and the Welsh of Swansea scored in the review, no hit. As mentioned earlier and once more Billy Sharp in attack is in best mood. He scored twice in the last two matchdays at the 2-1 in Norwich and last week in the home game against Bolton Wanderers he sealed with his goal the 2-0 final for United. Overall, he has met 19 times this season, which he as described together with Tammy Abraham of the hosts the top scorer lead.
His goalscoring qualities are of course no breaking news, but now well known. After all, he has scored a total of 64 league goals in his previous three seasons with Sheffield! How strong the offensive on foreign territory is set up, also prove the 24 goals in the previous 15 appearances – a value that topped just Leeds United and table leader Norwich by two goals. However, the defense likes to bring a few presents to the away games: only four of the away games ended with a clean sheet for the third of the table. However, coach Wilder can draw on a full-fledged staff, as only long-term injured Jake Wright in the defense and attacker Benjamin Woodburn are not available. Failures that are negligible, as Wright has not yet accumulated this season and Woodburn has been missing for many months.
Expected formation of Sheffield United:
Henderson – Basham – Egan – O’Connell – Baldock – Norwood – Stain – Stevens – Dowell – Madine – Sharp

Aston Villa vs Sheffield United Our Football Betting Prediction
Most recently, Aston Villa once again scored a home win. The opponent, however, was only the bottom of the table Ipswich Town. Before the success against the Tractor Boys put the normally relatively strong home team from Birmingham a series of five league home games without a victory, but they also conceded only one defeat and solidified their reputation as a draw king by four point divisions. So it does not really work out at Aston Villa and the change of coach last October has brought only a slight improvement. In a better position is the opponent. In third place are the kickers from Sheffield, who were still promoted last year. But the team is rightly so high up in the tableau, as it has been regularly calling its good performances for quite some time.
