EPL: AVFC vs SUFC






Aston Villa and Sheffield United will meet at Villa Park on Monday in a Premier League second round match. Neither team has any points yet, and while Sheffield United lost their first match, Aston Villa's game has been postponed.

The last meeting between the two teams ended with a boring goalless draw in June 2020. 2 out of the last 5 encounters had more than 2.5 goals, and only 2 similar matches also proved score goals in both teams. Aston Villa have not been able to win any of their previous four home matches, with each of the last 3 games ending without a winner. Aston Villa reached the 1/16 round of the EFL Cup after a 1-3 away win on Tuesday. Their previous match was a friendly against Manchester United that the Lions won 1-0 which was quite a surprise as their match in the opening round of the Premier League was postponed. The team is unbeaten in the last 6 matches, scoring 4 wins and 2 draws, 1 in 5 Lions previous meetings have generated more than 2.5 goals, in which 3 times saw both teams score. Aston Villa kept 2 clean sheets in their last 5 matches. 

Sheffield United are unbeaten in their last 4 encounters with Aston Villa, scoring 2 wins and 2 draws. Those 2 wins are the only wins of the home team in the last 7 encounters. Sheffield United's latest match was a visit to the Turf Moor Stadium on Thursday, when they faced Burnley in a clash with the EFL Cup. Matching time officially ended at 1-1 was pretty deadlocked, but Blades were left out of the tournament when they lost the penalty shootout. None of Sheffield United's last 5 matches has been won by the home team, with those encounters having seen two goals in both teams and once with more than 2.5 goals. Chris Wilder gave launch rights to Ethan Ampadu, Jayden Bogle and Max Lowe in midweek, with a particularly impressive defense and is competing for a starting spot with Enda Stevens. Sander Berge and David McGoldrick were both fit enough to begin just sitting on the bench last weekend and should do so again. Aaron Ramsdale, along with all three queens, were rested at the cup match and will return with John Lundstram, John Fleck and Oli McBurnie also out of the starting lineup.
