Back in the elite last year, Aston Villa had to fight to hang on to its maintenance. The Villans finished 17th in the Premier League with 1 small point ahead of the red zone. This maintenance, they owe it in particular to a successful end of the season (2 wins and 2 draws in the last 4 days). Aston Villa did not play a game last weekend and therefore start their first league game on Monday. In the middle of the week, the team won against Burton (3rd division) in the 32nd round of the Carabao Cup (1-3).

Also promoted to the Premier League last season, Sheffield United performed much better than their opponent of the day. Indeed, Chris Wilder’s men have unexpectedly won 9th place in the standings and the 3 losses conceded during the last 3 days have destroyed their hopes of European qualification (5 points behind the 6th). Last weekend, Sheffield United did not get off to a good start in this new championship, losing at home to an attractive Wolverhampton team (0-2). In the middle of the week, the team was eliminated in Burnley in the 32nd finals of the Carabao Cup (1-1, defeat following penalties).

Staff for Aston Villa vs Sheffield United

Aston Villa did not lose any major player during this transfer window except Pepe Reina who had been the goalkeeper at the end of the season, but on the other hand, had an eye on the Championship to strengthen. Thus, striker Ollie Watkins (25 goals with Brentford last year) and side Matty Cash (Nottingham Forrest) have signed, and given the sums spent, these two elements are likely to play an important role this season. Also, note the recruitment of Argentine goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez (ex-Arsenal). A revelation from the previous exercise, captain Jack Grealish is still at the club as are executives Mings, Targett, Douglas Luiz, McGinn, and Trezeguet. Disappointing last season, Brazilian striker Wesley is surely starting behind rookie Watkins at the start of the season. He is also absent for this first Premier League match, just like executives Heaton and Engels.

For Sheffield United, only the substitute goalkeeper Simon Moore and the French striker Lys Mousset are still unavailable for this meeting. Far from being a stranger to the team’s great season last year, goalkeeper Dean Henderson returned to Manchester United after his loan. To replace him, the leaders have set their sights on the young goalkeeper from Bournemouth Aaron Ramsdale (22 years old, 37 Premier League games last year). Also, the club secured the loan from Welsh international Ampadu (Chelsea) and signed Scottish international Oliver Burke (ex-Alaves, WBA), both substitutes on Matchday 1. Midfielder bosses John Fleck and John Lundstram are still there as is striker Oliver McBurnie.
