Sheffield United and Aston Villa will lock horns with each other in the Premier League next weekend. The match between the Blades and the Villans will be held at Bramall Lane and is scheduled to kick off at 5:30 pm UK time next Saturday.

Sheffield United

Sheffield United are having a torrid season and are in real danger of getting relegated to the Championship. The Blades have been the worst team in the Premier League this season, and even the most staunchest of fans of the Yorkshire club is not going to be too optimistic about the team’s chances of survival.

United are at the foot of the Premier League table at the moment with 10 points from 22 matches. Chris Wilder’s side are as many as nine points behind Luton Town, who are now 17th and have played 21 games. The Blades look doomed.

Wilder’s side have lost four of their last six Premier League matches. They will head into the match against Aston Villa on the back of a 3-2 defeat to Crystal Palace away from home at Selhurst Park in London in the Premier League. It came after a 5-2 loss at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion at home in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Sheffield United are likely to line up in a 4-1-4-1 formation against Aston Villa. Wes Foderingham will be in goal for the Blades. Jayden Bogle,  Anel Ahmedhodzic, Jack Robinson and Auston Trusty will be the four defenders. Vinicius Souza will be the holding midfielder. William Osula will lead the line for the Blades and will have James McAtee, Gustavo Hamer, Andre Brooks and Ben Brereton Diaz behind him in attacking midfield.

Aston Villa

Aston Villa are exceeding expectations at the moment. At the start of the season, Villa were expected to push for a European place in the Premier League table. As things stand now, Unai Emery’s side could end up in the top four of the standings.

Villa are fourth in the Premier League table at the moment with 43 points from 22 matches. The Villans are five points behind leaders Liverpool, who have played 21 games. There is still a chance that Unai Emery’s side could challenge for the Premier League title.

The Villans are in great form at the moment, though, They have lost two of their last five Premier League matches and have won just one of their last five. Villa will head into the match against Sheffield United on the back of a 3-1 defeat to Newcastle United at Villa Park in the Premier League.

Emiliano Martinez will be in goal and will have Ezri Konsa, Diego Carlos, Clement Lenglet and Alex Moreno in front of him in defence, Leon Bailey, Boubacar Kamara, Douglas Luiz and John McGinn will be the four midfielders. Ollie Watkins and Moussa Diaby will be the two centre-forwards.
