Our prediction: Sheffield United v Aston Villa

Villa were rock solid against Leeds last time out and they will be able to flex their forward muscles a little more at Bramall Lane here.

Don’t expect Smith to go all-out for a thrashing, though. The boss will be wary of Sheffield United’s battling spirit which could cause a surprise or two in South Yorkshire.

The visitors should win this game but United will give a good show of themselves.

Our prediction: Sheffield United 1-3 Aston Villa (18/1 at bet365)
