Sheffield United responded to such a dismal start with three straight wins and they’ll come into Saturday’s sixth round derby against promotional rivals Aston Villa in the highest of spirits.

This can’t be said for the visitors even though they are unbeaten after five opening games of the new campaign.

The Lions sit high fourth in the league ladder, but they were brutally denied last weekend conceding the late stoppage-time equalizer at home to Reading.

It was the third straight draw for Steve Bruce and his men who continued to struggle on Tuesday evening falling 1-0 away at Burton Albion in the League Cup affair.

Sheffield United vs Aston Villa: Head-to-head

  • Aston Villa were much more successful over the course of history.
  • The Lions won 53 and lost 27 ahead of the landmark 100th meeting with the Blades.
  • Aston Villa took four points from last term encounters with Sheffield United.

Sheffield United vs Aston Villa: Prediction

This will certainly be one of the most exciting ties of the Matchday in Championship. The hosts have the psychological advantage after winning three on the trot in the league and after bagging three goals past Bolton Wanderers away at Macron Stadium last time out.

The fans will create an electrifying atmosphere at Bramall Lane and we have to see the value in backing the Blades to clinch a new three-pointer at the 2.30 odds under these circumstances.

Both teams to score is the alternative betting option, set at the odds of 1.83. With such firepower on display (Clarke and Sharp for Sheffield and Kodjia for Aston Villa), you just have to see the value in backing goals at both ends.
