Sheffield Utd vs Aston Villa Match Details
Sheffield Utd vs Aston Villa kicks-off at Bramhall Lane at 3.00pm on Saturday 14 December
Sheffield Utd Form
Sheffield Utd have impressed everyone this season with their enthusiasm and skill, and manager Chris Wilder has proven a master tactician on several occasions. The Blades are, amazingly, unbeaten in eight games on their travels, but their home form isn’t as good.
Newcastle, Liverpool, Leicester, and Southampton have all left Bramhall Lane with three points this season, but Sheffield Utd have lucked unlucky on several occasions. Their three wins at home have come against Arsenal, Burnley, and Crystal Palace, whilst they were the better team for long periods in a 3-3 draw with Manchester Utd
Aston Villa Form
Aston Villa have been nowhere near as good as Sheffield Utd on the road this season, having lost five of their eight away matches against Wolves, Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham, and Crystal Palace. But they have beaten Norwich and Brighton and recently claimed a draw at Manchester Utd.
Villa have yet to keep a clean sheet on their travels but have got on the scoresheet in six of their eight away games.
Sheffield Utd vs Aston Villa Head-To-Heads
Aston Villa have bossed their Premier League head-to-heads with Sheffield Utd, winning five and drawing one. But it’s 12 seasons since they played each other in the Premier League, so those results are probably best left in the Premier League archives.
But it’s not 12 years since the two teams played each other, as they met twice in the Championship last season. Both teams have strengthened their squads since, but the same two managers are still in charge.
That’s why last season’s results make for very interesting reading. Sheffield Utd came out on top 4-1 at Bramhall Lane last season, suggesting they should have Aston Villa’s measure this season after taking another big step forward. Meanwhile, The Blades also took a 3-0 lead at Villa Park last season before conceding three late goals to take just a point from the match.
