Tip: Under 2.5 Goals
Units: 3/5

Aston Villa splashed the cash last season and nearly got relegated, with Dean Smith having over £100 million to spend on players and the Premier League season going into lockdown probably helped out the Midlands side.

Can New Aston Villa Signings Help Them to Victory?

The Villans have been further strengthened this summer due to the arrival of Emiliano Martinez, Matty Cash and Ollie Watkins, with all three players likely to make their debuts against a Sheffield United team who lost their opening game against Wolves.

Smith’s side averaged less than a point per game when finishing seventeenth in the English top flight and it’s hard to feel too confident about tipping a Villa side who only won seven of their nineteen matches at Villa Park last term.

The Villans defence certainly improved after the enforced break and our prediction is that they’ll continue to run a tight ship, especially with Tyrone Mings operating in front of Emiliano Martinez, although the jury is out on whether they can improve when it comes to putting the ball in the onion bag.

Watkins performed well for Championship side Brentford last season when finishing joint-top scorer in the division although he’s unproven in the top flight and it also appears that the Blades will struggle for goals on the evidence of ninety minutes against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Don’t Bet Against Sheffield United and Go For Unders

Chris Wilder’s side conceded two early goals against Wolves before huffing and puffing their way through the match in an attempt to get back into the game, although if we were betting on any team to win this Premier League match, it would probably be the visitors.

The safer bet is Under 2.5 Goals, with this fixture finishing goalless a few months ago and the two defences are quite simply better than the attacking prowess of either team.
