Aston Villa and Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Sheffield United have put in some plucky displays under Chris Wilder but they are struggling to cope with the quality of the Premier League, which could be exposed against Aston Villa, who are hungry to get back to winning ways after losing at home to Newcastle. The Blades may score, but the visitors should take the points.

Aston Villa 3-2

Reason for tip

The Blades have scored in eight of their last ten home league matches, but they may not keep pace with Villa, who should have been shaken by their midweek defeat. The Midlands outfit have scored twice in four of their last five league away games and could go one better by recording a 3-2 win at Bramall Lane.

Ollie Watkins To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Ollie Watkins ended a run of seven matches without a goal when he netted in the 3-1 defeat to Newcastle in midweek and that should boost his own confidence ahead of a visit to the Premier League’s leakiest defence.

Sheffield United vs Aston Villa Predictions

  • Sheffield United have scored in eight of their last ten Premier League home matches.
  • Aston Villa have scored twice in four of their last five league away games.
  • Eight of the Blades’ last ten matches have featured at least three goals.

Great chance for Villa to bounce back

The quality of Aston Villa’s home performances has been one of the stories of the Premier League season but now their record of being unbeaten at Villa Park in the league for almost a year has ended, it will be interesting to see what Unai Emery’s team are made of.

They have made great strides since the Spaniard replaced Steven Gerrard in the hotseat when they looked like their future in the top flight might be limited, but they will have to be back at the top of their game to ensure they do not suffer another slip-up at bottom-of-the-table Sheffield United on Saturday.

The Blades look as if they have a bit of fight in them since Chris Wilder retook the Bramall Lane helm, but that endeavour can only get them so far and they have a mountain to climb.

Their 3-2 defeat at Crystal Palace on Tuesday was a case in point as they showed plenty of determination but just came up short, and there looks a strong chance that this clash could be a similar story.

Blades may not have enough to stay clean

The Blades have shipped 54 goals this season, which tells its own story when they have played 22 fixtures and eight of those came in one home game against Newcastle, but they know where the goal is at the other end.

They have scored twice in their last two home games against Luton and West Ham, and also in the FA Cup against Brighton last week but the problem is that they have conceded ten times in those three matches.

So while they have the ability to trouble a Villa defence,  as they did when earning a creditable point at Villa Park earlier in the season, there is always the fear that they will be exposed at the other end.

Their visitors are capable of doing that so while the Blades could even score twice again, they could still reflect on another pointless effort.

Consequently, backing Villa to win with both teams to score appeals with a 3-2 away victory of possible interest to those looking for a correct-score selection.

Watkins could be back in the groove

Such has been the emergence of Ollie Watkins as one of the best strikers in the Premier League that a run of seven games without a goal is considered a shock.

However, the England forward got back in the scoring mood by notching what turned out to be a consolation in the defeat to Newcastle and it is just possible that the floodgates are about to open, so take the former Brentford man to score in Saturday’s clash.
