THE PREDICTION

Sheffield United lost their opener against Wolves on Monday and they lost on penalties in the League Cup to Burnley so there are some early signs that they may not find it as easy in their second season in the Premier League. They travel to face Aston Villa who have invested heavily this summer bringing in Martinez this week from Arsenal, Cash from Nottingham Forest and Watkins from Brentford with all three potentially starting here. They may take some time to settle however and with Sheffield United potentially looking to get back to basics and keep things tight at the back first and foremost, this match may resemble a pre-season friendly. Goals are unlikely to flow with goalmouth action potentially at a premium so consider under 2.5 goals in this one.
