Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder would have been happy that his side rebounded from their defeat against Newcastle with an excellent comeback win against Norwich last weekend.
The Blades will be facing another newly-promoted side tomorrow as they face Aston Villa at Bramall Lane. Dean Smith’s side lost 4-1 at home to Leicester City last time out, and United should be confident of getting a result at home.
Wilder once again has a fully fit squad to choose from, which is quite astonishing considering the Blades have not been rotating their side that often this season.
There are, though, three first-team regulars s who could be suspended if they pick up yellow cards. John Lundstram, John Fleck and George Baldock are just one booking away from an automatic one-match suspension.
Sheffield United’s Predicted XI To Face Aston Villa:
Henderson, Baldock, Basham, Egan, O’Connell, Stevens, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, McGoldrick, Mousset
Villa have four injury concerns heading into tomorrow’s game. Matt Targett should be fit to start after overcoming a knock, but Tyrone Mings (hamstring), Jed Steer (Achilles) and Keinan Davis (thigh) have all been ruled out.
Aston Villa’s Predicted XI:
Heaton, Guilbert, Konsa, Engels, Targett, Hourihane, Nakamba, McGinn, El Ghazi, Wesley, Grealish
The bookies have United as favourites with Unibet pricing them at 22/25 odds-on to win. A draw is currently 14/5 with 888 Sport, while a Villa victory is 10/3 at BetVictor.
Predicted Score – 2-0 to Sheffield United
