Premier League football is back! On Wednesday 17 June, Aston Villa and Sheffield United will be among the first English top flight teams to resume the 2019/20 campaign, with the former having an immediate opportunity to escape the relegation zone.

The Villans are two points away from safety with this game in hand, having accrued twenty-five points from twenty-eight games before the lockdown. For what it’s worth, the Midlands side signed off with five consecutive defeats including a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Leicester City.

Now they have a chance to start over, although our prediction is a tricky clash against a Sheffield United team who don’t have any relegation concerns. Indeed, the Yorkshire side aren't even priced up in the relegation betting market. The Blades are sitting pretty in seventh place although you can be sure that Chris Wilder will have his team ready and firing.

The Yorkshire side have only lost two games away from home this season and they’ve been defensively stout on their travels, conceding just twelve goals in thirteen matches on the road.

On the flip side, they have scored just thirteen and if one criticism is to be levelled at them, United are short of a quality striker who can be more prolific in front of goal. That is why we're reluctant to back them with our latest betting tips.

This match is likely to be played at an empty Villa Park and it could be a slow start as both teams adjust to life post-lockdown, with Dean Smith’s side looking to be defensively sounder considering their rearguard has been leaky all term.

Jack Grealish is the shining light of the team and Tyrone Mings has actually acquitted himself well in defence despite his team’s record, but so many other players have fallen short despite the club’s big spending in the summer.

It’s now a case of Villa rolling their sleeves up for the scrap and we know that United will be looking for a solid defensive base in a bid to land what would be their fifth away victory of the season.
