Both seeking their first Premier League win of the year, Sheffield United and Aston Villa square off at Bramall Lane on Saturday.
The Blades have won their last three home games against Unai Emery’s men and will head into the weekend looking to continue in the same vein.
Sheffield United were left spitting feathers on Tuesday when they fell to a narrow 3-2 defeat against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
This followed a 5-2 hammering at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion in their FA Cup fourth-round clash on January 27 which saw their run of two consecutive games without defeat come to an end.
Sheffield have now lost 16 of their 22 Premier League matches while claiming two wins and four draws to collect 10 points and sit rooted to the bottom of the table.
Aston Villa, on the other hand, dropped out of the top four as they suffered a 3-1 defeat against Newcastle United at Villa Park on Tuesday.
Prior to that, Unai Emery’s side were on a four-match unbeaten run across all competitions, claiming two wins and two draws, including a goalless draw against Chelsea in their FA Cup fourth-round clash on January 26.
With 43 points from 22 matches, Aston Villa are currently fifth in the Premier League table but could move level with third-placed Arsenal with all three points this weekend.
