Every team will be desperate to return to action with a confidence-boosting win to get off the mark, but some will need those victories and points more than others.

Villa are in dire straits right now, the pressure is all on them to make the most of their final nine games.

Dean Smith’s men sit in the relegation zone in a tightly-congested pack of drop-zone candidates, while Sheffield United are flying high at the other end of the table.

The Blades are scrapping away for a Europa League spot, but stunningly remain in the hunt for fifth place, a spot which could secure a Champions League berth next season if Manchester City’s expected ban is upheld.

Aston Villa v Sheffield United team news

Aston Villa: Wesley and Tom Heaton remain sidelined through injury. Even when they return to fitness they cannot return to action after being cut from the squad list in February.

However, John McGinn is back and will hopefully provide Villa with a little extra sparkle and goal threat from midfield.

Sheffield United: Fully fit and raring to go, that’s the Sheffield United team news for you.

Goalkeeper Dean Henderson has extended his loan from Manchester United so there will be no scramble for a backup stopper in the remaining nine games.

Our prediction: Aston Villa v Sheffield United

It’s incredibly tough to answer the question with ‘Villa’ in most games. They have deep issues at both ends of the pitch.

A lack of striking options has been exposed this season, while too many individual, sloppy errors have ruined their hopes in too many games.

In Jack Grealish, Villa have a maverick match-winner who could pull out a result from anywhere, but Sheffield United are impressively tough to break down and could dig in for a resolute performance in their first day back at the office.

Our prediction: Aston Villa 0-1 Sheffield United
