The Premier League is back and the 2019/20 season will resume with struggling Aston Villa hosting Sheffield United.

This is the first match since the coronavirus pandemic saw the campaign grind to a halt in March.

Before the unplanned hiatus, Villa had lost four consecutive Premier League matches. They currently sit 19th, two points from safety.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

Sheffield United were meanwhile in fine form. They last lost a Premier League match all the way back in January – losing 1-0 at home to reigning champions Manchester City – and they are currently 7th in the league. Win today and they will move to 5th, which could even see them earn a place in next season’s Champions League.

Wesley Moares and Tom Heaton are still out for Aston Villa.

Sheffield United have received a double fitness boost. Former Aston Villa left back Enda Stevens is back at full fitness after a long-term injury, while Lys Mousset is also available again.

We’re expecting the Premier League to return with an entertaining, open match. Aston Villa will be desperate to claw their way out of the relegation zone and we think they can snatch a point at home.
