Sheffield Utd vs Aston Villa team news

Sheff Utd

The Blades gave it their all away at Crystal Palace, taking the lead twice, but still ended up coming away with nothing to show for their efforts. Ben Brereton Diaz opened the scoring in the very first minute but Palace equalised in the seventeenth minute. However, James McAtee put the visitors back in front a few minutes later, only for the Eagles to equalise again before the interval. Palace scored the only goal of the second half to claim a 3-2 victory against a hard-working Sheffield United side.

Chris Basham, John Egan, George Baldock, Max Lowe, Tom Davies, Daniel Jebbison and Ivo Grbic could miss out on Saturday through injury, while Rhian Brewster is suspended.

Predicted Lineup: Foderingham (GK), Robinson, Ahmedhodžić, Trusty, Bogle, Hamer, Souza, McAtee, Ben Slimane, McBurnie & Brereton

Aston Villa

Aston Villa had the home advantage over Newcastle but failed to make it count with the Magpies taking a 2-0 lead into the halftime break. A third goal for the visitors via the unfortunate Alex Moreno put this result beyond doubt even though Ollie Watkins managed to pull a goal back for the home side in the seventy-first minute.

Emiliano Buendia, Tyrone Mings, Jhon Duran, Lucas Digne and Pau Torres are all doubts ahead of the trip to Bramall Lane this weekend due to injury.

Predicted Lineup: Martínez (GK), Lenglet, Moreno, Konsa, Cash, McGinn, Tielemans, Kamara, Luiz, Watkins & Diaby

Player to Watch: Ollie Watkins

Watkins was on target for Aston Villa in midweek despite his team's disappointing overall performance against Newcastle.

The former Brentford man top scores for Unai Emery's side with ten Premier League goals and could play a big part in Villa making a quick return to winning ways this weekend.

Not only does Watkins provide most of the goals for Aston Villa, he also has eight assists, two more than his teammate Leon Bailey, so you can see why Watkins i our player to watch in this game.
